No, but I was just wondering what the potential price of those Gods would be and a theocracy would merely be one possibility and most theocracies have not been known to have liberal social views, particularly when it comes to the issue of marriage.
And we are very much not “proper” royalty, considering how legally we’d very much be the usurpers of our “proper”, royal “uncle” should we succeed.
Then this is the crux of the problem for my mc, while a “proper” prince who has a spare who can get children might be able to get away with it a bastard with no other relatives would likely not and would be under tremendous pressure to marry a proper, noble princess (read stuck up bitch who will never respect us and expects us to be her cuckold to my mc), which is one more reason for my mc to not want the job.
For example over here we have a monarchy and gay marriage is legal, this should technically allow our (future) monarch to gay marry, but it’s not that simple. The heir to the throne needs to get permission to do so three times (in practice, two times de-jure). First the reigning monarch has to approve of the prospective bride or groom, just like with a straight marriage, if they don’t then there is either no marriage for them until they become the head of the family themselves, or no succession. Secondly they need the de-facto permission of the PM as he/she has to put it on the agenda for a vote in both houses of parliament. Should the populists or the conservative or Christian reactionaries happen to ever hold it when a possible royal gay marriage comes up, they can just delay doing so indefinitely, for as long as they remain in office.
Lastly there is the formal vote. There is an unofficial understanding that this is done quietly nowadays (and really has been ever since the monarchy became constitutional in 1848) but that unwritten rule or understanding might very well not hold with a potential gay marriage, again likely depending on the strength of the conservatives, populists and reactionaries in parliament at that time. In which case we might get televised votes, inquests and hearings in which the poor guy or gal is publicly dissected, much like USA (Supreme Court) confirmation hearings. All potentially very embarrassing and stressful with a decidedly uncertain outcome.
Depending on how much power our fictional mc has here, none of this might apply to them, or all of it might, should we need to make so many concessions that we effectively become ceremonial/constitutional monarchs, which is a position my mc definitely would not want to fill.
Compared to that, plastic surgery, a new identity and a new life in a better country that doesn’t still practice slavery would probably sound like heaven to my mc.
