Some people want to marry the love of their life, others find affection in inanimate objects. In what can best be described as a real-life sequel to Her, a former Tennessee lawyer filed a motion in Texas courts to marry his MacBook Pro.
According to the Daily Beast, Mark "Chris" Sevier previously attempted to do so in Florida but his case was understandably tossed out. He argued that if same-sex "have the right to marry their object of sexual desire…then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object." Yikes.
Determined to see this thing through, Sevier is now suing in Texas with the demand that he is allowed a 14th Amendment right to be joined with his computer in wedded bliss. However, things aren’t looking good for him as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton already pushed for the lawsuit to be dismissed. He reasoned that "the right to marry one’s computer is not an interest, objectively, deeply rooted in the nation’s history and tradition.”
Those sound words may not get through to the alleged Christian electronic dance music producer. Judging from Sevier’s past, he may be functioning on different, non-Earth logic. He previously stated that the Constitution was being "hijacked" by same-sex marriage. Oh, and a substantial arrest record includes a charge in 2013 for aggravated stalking.
What a gem.
