I don't know how this will stand up in court, but I say, why not?

They can argue that the 14th Amendment allows them equal protection under the law, because by the government refusing this to them, it is depriving them of their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This I can jump behind however, I wouldn't mind having seven wives... one for each day of the week all different races too, though the Asian would be my main wiafu....

In all seriousness though, Marriage was always a joke that people would laugh about, because it's like, "what fool would get caught in to a trap (at least for men) that has been established as a trap? Now it's becoming a bad joke, the kind no one would laugh at anymore.

Legalized polygamy is such a huge shift if it were to happen compared to legalizing same-sex marriage. Everything from the tax code to how divorce law would be set up would need to change dramatically, as it's all designed for a pairing of two. It would have huge ramifications politically if it were to be legalized.

I'm sure people will push for it, people push for all manner of things - but the repercussions will be widespread.

This looks like it's gonna be a discussion I won't want to, or have the energy to get involved with.

In very few words, I can easily see where they'll be problems, but good for them.

I will support polygamy because I want a harem like in the animes.

As long as they aren't sexist and allow polyandry too. why not. (personally I think such marriages are inherently unstable but... it's free country. or it used to be)

Of course this will resonate with some anime fans because they all fawn over 10 year old girl harems.

But I digress.

I don't know or care honestly. Marry as many as you want.

*Looks into future*

I'd say I don't want to live on this world anymore after looking into the future just now, but I'd be lying.

I don't want to live on this world anymore after looking into the future just now.


In all seriousness though, why not? There are enough millions of people in affected countries that someone will be able to deal with all the changes in the legal system, right?

You imply that normal marriages are inherently stable.

I don't care. Whatever makes you happy, I'm not concerned.

Yes I saw that article before. But I'm sticking with my prediction that it's incest that will be next. Polygamy, in my opinion, requires more moral decay than incest, especially between consenting cousins. But now that the traditional view that marriage is a right specifically because of procreation has been shattered, many groups are going to gain stronger ground using the same logic that got gay marriage passed (love is love, love wins, it doesn't matter as long as they're consenting, etc). Either way, we're on a long slippery slope downwards from here.

Not my intention. quite the opposite. I'm saying look at what happens with normal marriages. This is worse.

As long as it doesn't break the financial systems built around marriage, I suppose I wouldn't care. Also, I think everyone in the marriage would have to sign up when they add new people, otherwise you'd probably see a ton of divorces. Seems lIke a waste of time though. It's an outdated concept in socially advanced world and buts heads with gender equality. Plus, the potential for jealousy within the marriage would be ever present.

I think you'd have to be a special kind of narcissist to think you deserve multiple wives.
