first_imgNathan Collier: Montana man inspired by same-sex marriage ruling requests right to wed two wives The Independent 2 July 2015Nathan Collier said he was inspired by the recent Supreme Court decision that made marriage equal. He said he was particularly struck by the words of dissenting Chief Justice John Roberts who claimed giving gay couples the right to marry, might inspire polygamy. And so this week, Mr Collier and his two wives, Victoria and Christine, entered a courthouse in Billings, Montana, and sought an application to legalise the trio’s polygamous union,“Right now we’re waiting for an answer,” Mr Collier told The Independent. “I have two wives because I love two women and I want my second wife to have the same legal rights and protection as my first.”He added: “Most people are not us. I am not trying to define what marriage means for anybody else – I am trying to define what marriage means for us.”The practice of bigamy – holding multiple marriage licences – is outlawed in all 50 of the US states, Montana among them. But Mr Collier said he planned to sue if his application was denied.Mr Collier said he was former Mormon who had been excommunicated for polygamy and now owned a refrigeration business in Billings.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/nathan-collier-montana-man-inspired-by-samesex-marriage-ruling-requests-right-to-wed-two-wives-10361612.htmllast_img read more

first_img“That’s what I do best, man,” he said of his defense.The fine second-half defense notwithstanding, none of this is possible without the game had by Jamal Crawford. Crawford started at one of the guard spots and came through with 37 points. He also doled out eight assists and grabbed six rebounds in just less than 41 minutes.Crawford made all 10 of his free throws, including four in the final 7.3 seconds. He also whipped a pass to Blake Griffin for a 20-foot jump-shot that gave the Clippers (6-4) a 97-94 lead with 17.9 seconds to go.“For him to have a night like he did tonight, that was huge,” Griffin said. “He wasn’t just hitting shots, but he was getting everybody else involved.”The most minutes Crawford had played in a game this season was 29. He motioned for Rivers to take him out early in the fourth quarter after not coming close on a 5-footer. He cracked up reporters when asked about that.“It’s hard taking yourself out of the game, but once I missed that little runner — it was like 5 feet and it was 2 feet short — I went, ‘OK, it’s time,’” Crawford said.It sounded like Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy was kicking himself for Crawford going off the way he did.“He played great,” Van Gundy said. “Honestly, I should have been able to come up with something that would have made it tougher.”Detroit guard Reggie Jackson marveled at the 35-year-old Crawford, who scored on an array of shots while making 12 of 27 — 3 of 7 from 3-point range.“When he gets it going, he is one of the best scorers in the league,” Jackson said.Griffin had another in a long line of fine games. He came through with 34 points on 14-of-25 shooting. He also had eight rebounds, nine assists, two steals and a block.DeAndre Jordan had 10 points and 16 rebounds for the Clippers, and Austin Rivers scored 13.Jackson and Ersan Ilyasova scored 20 points apiece for Detroit and center Andre Drummond had 18 points and 19 rebounds.The Clippers shot 46.8 percent overall, 36.8 percent (7 of 19) from beyond the arc.The Clippers don’t play again until they host Golden State on Thursday. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Having lost four of five, the Clippers on Saturday afternoon took the floor against an improving Detroit Pistons team. With starting guards Chris Paul and J.J. Redick out again with injuries, it was a recipe for another Clippers defeat.That appeared very possible when the Pistons held a 17-point lead midway through the second quarter. But the Clippers started playing defense and came away with a much-needed 101-96 victory before a sellout crowd of 19,060 at Staples Center.Paul (strained groin) and Redick (back spasms) have missed the past two games.One of the keys to victory was slowing down a Detroit team that made seven of its first 13 3-point attempts. The Pistons (5-4) missed their final 14 shots from beyond the arc, finishing 7 of 27 (25.9 percent).center_img Clippers coach Doc Rivers said his team looked “a little different” on defense in the second half.“We got up a little bit more in pick-and-rolls,” he said. “I thought our guards did a better job of going downhill and I thought that allowed our bigs to get back out. And we did some switching as well; we made some adjustments.”The Pistons scored just 36 points in the second half, during which the Clippers put together an all-around solid defensive effort.“I thought Luc (Mbah a Moute) was huge in the game tonight,” Rivers said.Mbah a Moute, a reserve forward who has not played much, played nearly nine minutes.last_img read more

But to have them by your side, even on the field with you, is better than Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris’ wildest dreams.Krieger and Harris will join the U.S. women’s national soccer team on back-to-back trips to the FIFA Women’s World Cup. But this time, they’ll be going as fiancées. Pugh wrote in The Players Tribune, “I have a goal. It’s for this year, for the World Cup and beyond: I want to be the best at everything I do.”She continued, “I’m hoping that I can make a statement at this summer’s World Cup — just like [Mia Hamm] did back in 1999. I’m hoping to get into one of those Mia Hamm Zones.”The Braves are in season during the World Cup, so Swanson likely won’t have a chance to make it to France to support the national team. But if you’re in Atlanta, you might catch him at a U.S. matchday watch party.

Pugh’s brother-in-law, second baseman Jace Peterson, introduced the two. The young couple are fairly private about their relationship, but they certainly aren’t hiding it. Merry Christmas 🎄A post shared by Dansby Swanson (@dansbyswanson) on Dec 25, 2018 at 4:37pm PSTSwanson told Sporting News in March, “We never would have met, obviously, if I didn’t get traded to Atlanta. Would never have met Jace, the whole thing. So I’m thankful now.”In 2016, the 18-year-old Pugh became the youngest U.S. goal scorer in Olympic history. She’s looking for more on the biggest stage in soccer. It really does get better. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜A post shared by Ali Krieger (@alikrieger) on Oct 11, 2018 at 3:00pm PDTThe USWNT stars kept their relationship private to avoid distraction from their club, national team and teammates.“We wanted to be professional and make sure that we showed up every day and did our job and it wasn’t just because we were together, it was because we love what we do, and we’re really good at what we do,” Krieger told People. “We were like, now is the right time … and I feel like it’s a massive weight off of my shoulders.”Krieger, who is embarking on her third World Cup, was a hopeful addition to the roster, having been out of USWNT camps for two years.“It’s a dream come true to be back,” Krieger told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s really nice to be able to share this moment with her and make these memories with [Ashlyn], and really have someone in your corner that understands the [training] process and how tiring it is.”ICYMI: Soccer Stars Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris Are Engaged! 💕 https://t.co/7XMpkPlWOy— People (@people) March 13, 2019The couple is still dedicated to not being a distraction from the team and their historic chase for a fourth title.“When we’re at work, we’re there to work.
