Well, yes. 'Marry' was just a convenient word to use. Legally it would
not be possible to marry an AI robot until it had achieved legal
personhood status, with all the rights that go along with that. (And
by then it would probably turn down my offer of marriage anyway).  :)

But AI robots could develop into becoming almost-human companions. In
which case my query really asks whether there would be laws against
every home becoming a mini-Playboy mansion with attractive sexbots
attending to every whim of the owner. (Just can't get enough of these
whims!).  :)
