    If, according to the recent rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court on the subject of political contributions, a corporation has the same rights as people, then can a corporation get married?

    Thatís what Sarah Steiner figured, so forget Mr. Right Ė she wants Mr. Right, Inc. Frank Cerabino of The Palm Beach Post wrote:

    Steiner, a former co-chair of the Green Party of Florida, said her perfect corporate husband would be environmentally conscious, socially responsible and "not evil."

    "I will be looking for how they behaved in past mergers," she said. [...]

    Steiner, who had a brief, human-on-human marriage during her teen years, figured that she might as well try to marry a corporation this time.

    "Iím looking for the same thing that any girl is looking for Ė a partner," she said.

    And a corporate partner has its advantages.

    "Are you planning to have kids?" I asked her.

    "Subsidiaries," she said. "Yes. Maybe even spinoffs."
    Does that make her wedding night an IPO? :D

    I'm sure she will have just as much luck in this quest as she would have in trying to find an actual, fully-functional MAN to marry her moonbat ass.

    It's because of stupid twats like this that domestic relations laws generally refer to 'Natural persons.'

    I might could go for a LP (Limited Partnership).
    A very limited partnership.

    I wanna see if this girl can marry a corporation. And as the "person" she is marrying is an abstract legal entity, I assume consumation requires a mere signature. If the government says she can't marry a corporation, then a discrimination suit is in order. ;) I see this one going to the Supreme Court.:D

    It's not the Viagra, but the length of the pole. :D

    So, you wouldn't have a mergers and acquisitions division, then. :D

    Even though it is an abstract legal entity, there are marital obligations that she can expect to have fulfilled. How they would be fulfilled would have to be part of the marriage contract, which would, by necessity, stipulate the details of the consumation. The board of directors could designate an employee to perform those duties, (can't wait to read that job description), or they could decline to delegate the task and perform it themselves, unless the shareholders vote to perform the duty themselves and limit the functions of the board to foreplay and a bit of cuddling after the act.
