    I know you aren't talking about incest, but when you start introducing the idea of siblings entering into come kind of civil relationship, you really can't be talking about anything equating to marriage.  That, as the author of this post suggests, is a union of two people in a loving relationship, and the creation of a new family.  The brotherly relationship is not a "new family," but a financial arrangement which, imho, should not muddy the waters, and which should rightly be maintained as a matter of estate planning.

    •  Right. The legal effect of marriage (0+ / 0-)

      is to create new family ties without breaking any old ones (as adoption would do). In the case of people who already have family ties, the effect of marriage would be to overlay another, possibly conflicting, set of family ties, resulting in two people being related to each other in incompatible ways.

      Writing in all lower-case letters should be a capital offense
