A Belconnen man has contacted the ACT Registrar-General’s Office to find out how he can marry his new iPad.
“I have fallen in love with my new iPad,” said James Hicks in an exclusive interview with The Canberra News Digestive.
“Why should I be discriminated against, just because my love interest is different to yours? Have you seen the new retina display?” asked Mr Hicks.
“I am not asking to marry my iPad, I am too old fashioned for that. Instead, I just want a recognised civil union ceremony with some of my closest family and friends. My new iPad will travel with me through all of time.”
Hicks has enlisted constitutional lawyer Connor Brent to assist him in his unusual quest.
“The ACT’s Civil Partnerships Act is not specific about whether humans can marry electronic devices,” said Mr Brent.
“I think Mr Hicks has a relatively strong case, and I intend to pursue this for as long as it may take.”
The highly anticipated new iPad with slightly better features became available in Australia late last week.
