Man was banned from marrying his laptop because of it’s too young


Utah is battling a lawsuit from a man demanding the right to marry his laptop. Anti-gay lawyers claim that a willing to marry a gadget is the same as a wish to tie the knot with the person of the same sex. Sevier, who has filed action on similar grounds in Texas and Kentucky, claims that because same-sex marriage is legal the state of Utah must also allow him to tie the knot with his computer, but the court ruled it to be impossible because the device is underaged. Utah’s assistant Attorney General David Wolf wrote: “Under Utah law, Sevier’s computer is not a party legally capable of entering into a solemnized marriage and cannot meet the consent requirement of the unsolemnized marriage statute. Even if that were not the case, unless Sevier’s computer has attained the age of fifteen it is too young to marry under Utah law. Therefore, Sevier cannot satisfy even the most basic requirements for a valid marriage under Utah law. His factual allegations are not plausible, and his claims should be summarily dismissed.” The court ruling stated that the marriage equality law in Utah includes the word ‘people’, so it is not possible to use it in consideration to objects.
