If same sex couples can wed, why shouldn't a man be allowed to marry his laptop?
That's the argument being put forward by Chris Sevier.
Sevier has challenged a court decision denying him the right to marry his laptop in a bizarre case that loosely resembles the plot of Oscar-winning film Her.
The army veteran has filed a motion to the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeal arguing that if same-sex couples can do it, he should be allowed to continue the romance with his Macbook.
'If gays have the right to “marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts, then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object,' he says.
