There's the human rights issue of women being forced into marriage, usually at a young age. Then throw in the effect on other relationships. If a man has four wives, that's less women for other single men to try and find. It creates an skew towards more men in that society. Gay marriage doesn't have that effect.

Then there's the legal reasons. Since marriage is a contract between two people, adding more people makes it more complex. How do you deal with next of kin or divorce? Splitting assets? Child support?

While on a high level perspective, I don't really have a problem with polygamy. Seems a bit much, but if all parties are adults and consent...sure. But then you get into legal issues and it falls apart.
Great post.

It still disturbs me that polygamy is often mentioned when discussing same sex marriage, when the two have absolutely NOTHING in common.




INDY, do you honestly believe homosexuality is a choice? If so, can you please elaborate why you believe that?

LOL! My conclusion is that some don't want to accept that times are a changin' and they'll go to great lengths to refuse it. That's all.

Well, I would suppose that some people think it their right to marry as many as women as will say "yes".

No matter what, so long as it's an opposite sexed partner, they can still get married. They have access to that institution even if it's limited to one person.

Gay people do not have that right in 33 states. They can't get authentically married to anyone. A straight person -- convicted felon or octogenarian -- can always marry someone.

I was thinking about this whole "gay marriage/polygamy" bullshit the other morning.

Have any of the countries or states that have legalized SSM (I really hate that acronym) gone on to legalize polygamy?

Is this a real and credible threat?

Or is it just bullshit?

Some people think it is their right to stone a woman for looking at a man, or driving a car... your point is?

No idea, it sure isn't legal here. Not even been discussed. I've never even heard the argument in my country.
