Letter: Marriage

The Oxford Pocket Dictionary and Thesaurus-American Edition states:

Marriage: legal union of a man and a woman.

Then there is:

→  Monogamy: practice or state of being married to one person at a time.

→  Bigamy: crime of marrying when one is lawfully married to another person.

→  Polygamy: practice of having more than one spouse at a time.

Now is the new word in the vocabulary: gaylesbitransogamy?

Or how about synthogamy? syn is the prefix meaning ‘connoting’, ‘with’, ‘together’, ‘at the same time.’
