The law must change to make BOTH my marriages legal

‘Polyamorous’ woman was walked down the aisle by her first husband when she ‘wed’ her second and now wears TWO rings.

A woman is calling for a change of law than allows people to be legally married to more than one person at a time

Mary Crumpton is a practiser of polyamory –  meaning she believes in having more than one partner.

Mary Crumpton made a lifetime commitment to John Hulls earlier this year in a special ceremony.

People who are polyamorous consent to their partner’s being in a relationship with somebody else.

Naturally Mary’s husband Tim Crumpton gave her his blessing to be married and even walked Mary down the aisle of the special blessing ceremony.

Mary lives with Tim and John under the same roof in Chorlton, Manchester and is in equally committed and loving relationships with both of them.

What’s more Mary also has two boyfriends who live nearby and if any of her partners wanted to start seeing another woman at the same time, she’d be happy for them.

[…]  Mary and John’s ceremony took place at Chorlton Unitarian Church. They made vows to each other, and Tim and John made extra vows, promising to honour and respect Mary’s commitment to the other man.

‘The church is very forward thinking, they were the first to do homosexual marriages and civil partnerships so they are very inclusive and respectful of diversity,’ says Mary.

‘I went to the church and said that I’d like to have a wedding with John. I told them I knew it wouldn’t be a legal wedding, but I wanted it to be a wedding in every other respect.

‘They ran it by the committee and everyone was fully supportive.

‘That’s quite an amazing thing because as far as I know, it’s the first polyamorous wedding ceremony that’s happened in a church in the UK.
