Do cohabiting couples need more legal rights? Apparently, a recent ruling in Brazil is once again bringing the political theater of concept of matrimony to the front and conservatives in the South American country are up in arms. BBC News reports that a notary in Sao Paulo has recognized a civil union between three people two ladies and one male. According to Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues, the group of three has lived together long enough to warrant family rights, and Brazilian regulation has nothing that prohibits such an arrangement.
