Three way civil unions likely if a Mormon is elected president

Should a three-way marriage be allowed? A notary public in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has sparked controversy by allowing two women and a man to enter a civil union. Could formal marriage rights be far behind?

Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues said the trio should be entitled to family rights. The female-male-female grouping have lived in Rio de Janeiro together for three years and share bills and other expenses. The civil union would help protect their rights in case of separation or death of a partner.

But religious groups are angry, saying the civil union shouldn't be allowed to stand. Globo TV reports the civil union was formalised three months ago, but only came to light this week.
If Mitt Romney is elected president, these arrangements will become common in those states with large Mormon populations.
