Until Everyone is Free to Marry!

I saw this announcement last night about how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced that they aren't going to marry "until everyone is free to marry" and my wife and I both had the same thought: Warren Jeffs, polygamist and "husband" of little girls. Michael Williams beat me to the blog about this--and included some examples that make me want to laugh, such as this interspecies wedding from January:
JERUSALEM - Sharon Tendler met Cindy 15 years ago. She said it was love at first sight. This week she finally took the plunge and proposed. The lucky "guy" plunged right back.

In a modest ceremony at Dolphin Reef in the southern Israeli port of Eilat, Tendler, a 41-year-old British citizen, apparently became the world's first person to "marry" a dolphin. Dressed in a white dress, a veil and pink flowers in her hair, Tendler got down on one knee on the dock and gave Cindy a kiss. And a piece of herring.
You will recall my confusion a while back when I saw that supermodel Heidi Klum was marrying Seal--and I thought the headline referred to the marine mammal.

UPDATE: A reader asks:
Mr. Pitt left his wife for another woman and we're supposed to care about what he thinks about marriage?
