French MP, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen has suggested that accepting gay marriage could lead to multiple partner marriages.
Marion Maréchal-Le Pen has told The Telegraph in an exclusive interview that she is strongly opposed to same-sex marriage saying that if the traditional family model is broken that marriages between multiple partners might not be far behind. She suggested that if society was to break away from the heteronormative model of opposite-sex marriages, other “minorities” could want their love recognised by the state.
The 26-year-old Front National MP said in her interview,
“Once you break away from the natural framework of a man and a woman, you could have other minorities who want their form of love recognised by the state. If you endorse homosexuality [in marriage], why not polygamy?”
France legalised marriage between same-sex couples in 2013. It was the 14th nation to do so.
The MP also revealed that she is against “gay adoption” saying that,
“…That it’s very important for a child to have a father and a mother, and that parents aren’t interchangeable.”
Maréchal-Le Pen has been an MP in Vaucluse’s 3rd constituency since 2012. She was 22 at the time and was France’s youngest MP in recent history.
