The Iona Institute’s recent statement that two men or women would be able to marry for tax reasons after a yes vote on May 22 makes one wonder if they’re aware that a man and woman can do this already.
It also makes one wonder whether anyone would be foolish enough to treat such a statement seriously.
There is an ongoing problem of sham marriages in Ireland in which men from non-European countries pay to marry European women so that they can legally reside here.
If the Iona Institute is really concerned about the “sanctity of marriage”, could one of their spokespersons please explain why they’re raising red herrings rather than addressing this issue?
