Totally Married To The Idea

| Friendly | August 4, 2016

(My roommate is Australian and my boyfriend and I are Canadian. We have another roommate who’s Taiwanese and has to leave the country soon because his visa is expiring.)

Aussie: “You could marry [Taiwanese Roommate] and then he could stay.”

Me: “I don’t want to marry him. [Boyfriend], you marry him.”

Aussie: “What?”

Me: “Sure, why not. I wouldn’t mind.”

Aussie: “You guys have gay marriage?”

Me: “It’s been legal in this province for thirteen years. You guys don’t have it in Oz?”

Aussie: “No.”

Me: “Really? Why not? That’s so weird.”

Boyfriend: “Sweetie, not everywhere is Canada.”

Me: “I know, but they’re Australia! They’re like the Canada of the southern hemisphere.”

Aussie: “Nah, that’s New Zealand.”

Me: “Does NZ have gay marriage?”

Aussie: “I think so, yeah.”

Me: “Okay, then. Canada will hang with them until you guys get your act together.”
