Prince Edward Island can't figure out what to call homosexual "spouses" on marriage licences, now that SSM is the law of the land, so they're not issuing licences until then.
Why not husband and wife? Homosexual coupling apes the normal male-female relationship by having one partner take the dominant, "male" role and the other the submissive, "female" role.
In a backhanded way, that's recognition of the necessity of male and female in marriage.
So let them be husband and wife, and figure out for themselves which is which.
Let us return farce for farce.
