NZ Herald 22 May 2020Family First Comment: Watch this space…“Three people shared a home and a bed for 15 years, but their relationship isn’t recognised by law… The court ruling noted that polyamorous couples had asked the Law Commission to recognise their relationships when it recently reviewed the law. The Law Commission said at the time that excluding multi-partner relationships – which were “functionally similar” to marriages, civil unions or de facto relationships – could be difficult to justify. (!!) …But it eventually recommended to Government that the PRA should continue to cover only intimate relationships between two people.”When gender doesn’t matter in marriage, why should number?#protectmarriage #onemanonewomanThree people from a polyamorous relationship are in a battle over how to split a valuable Auckland property after they broke up.In the first case of its kind in New Zealand, the High Court ruled that the Property Relationships Act (PRA) could not be applied to people in a multi-partner relationship.The judge in the case, Justice Anne Hinton, also said the Family Court could not “stretch” the law to accommodate a three-way relationship.The case relates to a couple, Lilach and Brett Paul, who married in 1993.In 1999, Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three of them formed a polyamorous relationship.They moved into a four-hectare property in Kumeu, which had just been purchased in Mead’s name for $533,000. She paid the deposit of $40,000.They lived together at the property for 15 years, and mostly shared the same room and bed, the court ruling said.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12334075Man and two women who had three-way relationship in court battle over $2m farmStuff co.nz 22 May 2020A man and two women who were in a polyamorous relationship are now in a court battle over a property where they lived for 15 years.The relationship was the subject of the first ever judgment on polyamory and the Property (Relationships) Act, which was released on Friday.According to the judgement, Lilach and Brett Paul married in February 1998.The following year Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three formed a polyamorous relationship.Polyamory is the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/121597356/man-and-two-women-who-had-threeway-relationship-in-court-battle-over-2m-farm?cid=app-iPhoneKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Powered by Firework Back in 2002, the cricketing world saw a miracle happen. India’s iconic bowler Anil Kumble was present at the field in a Test match against West Indies, but with a bandage around his face. Despite the grave injury, the veteran continued to perform on the pitch, setting example for the cricketing fans and future generation of sportsperson to follow. This was the very example India’s Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi used telling students how to deal with exams.Advertisement Image Courtesy: narendramodi.in/PTIOn Monday at ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020’, an event where our Honourable PM addressed students about the importance of examinations and how to use the best method for preparation, Anil Kumble’s memorable feat was mentioned.Kumble, who is now working as a coach and commentator past his career days, posted the video of PM Modi’s speech on the incident on his official Twitter handle. The 49 year old added a caption, expressing his gratitude to the PM for mentioning hisname, and also wished good to the students: “Honoured to have been mentioned in #ParikshaPeCharcha2020 Thank you Hon. PM @narendramodi ji. Best wishes to everyone writing their exams.” Check out the clip below-Advertisement Addressing the students in the event at Gyandeep Global School in Harlalpur, Uttarakhand, PM Modi remembered the Windies Test match, and Kumble’s heroic deed as an example on how to face examinations.“In 2002 we saw the Indian team went to play against West Indies. In that time, our brilliant bowler Anil Kumble was injured from a bouncer, and his whole jaw was broken, alot of bandages were used.”While batting in Antigua, Kumble was hit by the ball, and suffered a jaw fracture. While a surgery was immiment and everyone expected the superstar to be out for the rest of the series, a bandaged Kumble came out of the pavilion and went back onto the field.The PM continued: “Even if he didn’t play, the country wouldn’t have blamed him. But he decided ‘No, I have the courage. Its ok if there is pain,’ but no matter how much bandage was needed, he went back on the field.”Kumble’s miraculous deed didn’t just end there. The spinner continued to bowl for 14 overs, keeping the host batting lineup under pressure. And the moment that turned the match, was him getting the legendary BRian Lara’s wicket, sending him back to the dugout on just 4 runs with an LBW.“And with securing Brian Lara’s wicket, he changed the outcome of the whole match. One man, and this much determination, becomes a big factor for the motivation of others.” PM Modi added.Also read-Anil Kumble takes KXIP reins as head coach for IPL 2020Virat Kohli turns into Santa to give children at shelter home the best X-Mas ever!
