    In other words, like every other state in the union where polyamory is perfectly legal. Since they're not wives. Next thing you know they'll be marrying their hamsters!

    Just as the initial SSM laws were about sodomy, not marriage directly.

    No they weren't. The initial SSM laws were about marriage. The original sodomy laws were about sodomy. Sodomy is not just a same-sex activity.

    The pro-gay movment had to first tackle sodomy laws before moving on anything else. Likewise the pro-polygamy movement has to move on cohabitation before anything else. Next will be insurance, adoption, housing and job discrimination, just like SSM went. When there is sound legal foundations for those agenda items then the fight for polygamy will begin at the federal level, just as with SSM.

    All arguments in support for SSM also support polygamy. There is no argument unique to SSM, or polygamy, for that matter. To allow one is to allow them all.

How much room for poligamy does that leave?
    Again, as Im stating to other users, I never expressed an opinion in the OP. Most of you are jumping to a conclusion because you think you know what I believe about this. I simply posted a story to stir debate and stated that I've seen others post about the "slippery slope" SSM would create for polygamy.
