It would be hard to support as a civil contract of marriage without proof that the Rhino consents.

In the event of the Rhino requesting a divorce what happens to any children the couple have adopted?
Can the Rhino take a job and earn enough to look after the kids and also pay alimony to his/her estranged husband?
Can the Rhino dump the kids on the man and hop on the next flight to Rio never to be seen or heard from again?
All of the above examples clearly show that a man/rhino combination is substantially similarly situated to a fertile heterosexual coupling and IDENTICALLY SITUATED to an infertile heterosexual coupling in just about the exact same way that same sex couples are.
It's like if I quoted the American Nazi Party and tried to claim that they're the definitive source of information about Jews because they're the ones "dealing with the problem"...
