Supreme Court sides with same-sex couples in Arkansas suit

under arkansas law, if a straight married couple have a kid, it is presumed they are both the parents and listed as such on the birth certificate
a homosexual couple wanted the same presumption. Previously, they had to get a judge to agree to it.

for court watchers, trump's pick gorsuch voted nay, so there remain 3 conservatives on the court,
Justices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented from the ruling.
Bush II's guy  Roberts seems to be firmly in the liberal camp

Man ‘marries’ his laptop, sues for state recognition and a wedding cake
The self-identified “machinist” says he married his laptop in a ceremony in New Mexico, and now he has sued to demand that a Colorado baker — who is already in court after refusing to bake for a same-sex marriage — must be compelled to make cakes for him and his computer “bride.” He also has filed a lawsuit demanding that Utah recognize his man-object marriage.

Hmmm... He'll have a valid case if the laptop incorporates so that it's legally a person. ;-)

People are marrying themselves, it's called 'sologamy'

it's a twist I hadn't thought of.
For a long time we've been discussing why three (or more) people can't get married when two people can. Other than traditional mores and societal norms there doesn't seem to be a reason, yet we were told in the debate over same-sex marriage that such reasons were not valid.
Some people have now gone the other way: if two people can get married, why can't one person?
We have monogamy, bigamy, and polygamy. Now we have sologamy.
It can only end in divorce!

I agree, I think a blanket ban on incestous relationships is a bit silly. But because the child-parent relationship is also a legal relationship, the lawmakers will have to decide which one takes precedence in some cases if the parent marries their child. I kind of understand why they don't want to poke this issue with a 10 yard barge pole.

No can do, sexbots do not have legal personhood because they're not sentient.
