    Since this religion is already screwy, why did they not legalize partnerships of three or more to be a family? Polyamorous people still have no way to get the benefits that a couple has.

    Is it really necessary to be married by a church in order to be legally married in New Zealand?

    If not, then what legal function do churches perform in NZ marriages?

    But do they offer gay weddings?

    Just for kicks, after reading this thread, I went and got ordained for free online. Now I can officiate weddings. That sure was easy.

    A marriage of more than two people raises a host of questions that go far beyond naming the particular deity honored in the ceremony.

    What if two of the spouses want to stay together but the third wants a divorce?

    The OP mislead me... Was thinking I could marry a plate of spaghetti.

    (Don't go there.)

    I'd want a three-way with a chocolate-chip cookie.

    It isn't really disgraceful at all. Rather, I like the tongue in cheek irreverence of the Kiwis for religion.
    In any form, recognised or otherwise.

    Marriage is a very personal, prvate affair, and should be allowed under any circumstances put forward in which both parties (or multiple, in some circumstances) perceive a benefit from being married, spritual or otherwise. It would certainly save a fair amount of literal bullshit.

    What can you expect of a nation that harboured Sauron and Saruman for many years!

    Well, in all probability, they'll harp on about having been the first to recognise the flying spaghetti monster religion for the next 100 years. That would be the downside.
    Votes for women, and all that.

    Sounds like we've got a sequel to American Pie.
