    Which is yet to happen in any country with fully legal same-sex marriage.

    That's the point man. Some believe DOMA and polygamy have nothing to do with each other. However, many on this website believe that they do. My intention was to stir debate over that topic, which I succeeded in doing. At no point did I state MY opinion in the OP. This website doesn't require that you pick a side man. You should know that, you've been here longer than I have.
    At no point you stated your opinion in the OP?

    And I quote...

This judge really has no precedent anymore to rule against polygamy. Nor does any other Federal judge really.
    You were arguing that DOMA being struck down directly led to this judge's ruling.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    And I explained to you that your position on SSM (leave it up to the states) would also create a slippery slope for polygamy in the case of states like Utah.

    Yeah well, you don't have to say it to display it.

    Hell, I don't even believe you acknowledge it - as most US voting base...

    I may. If you have an issue with that, don't read the friggin thread man.
    A lot of users on this site believe that these issues correlate because our gov't is redefining what it believes to be marriage. In the past, it was between a man and woman. Now, a lot of courts are saying they can't tell any citizen who they can and can't marry. This is evidenced by many SSM rulings. The natural progression of our society is going to be to push the bounds of this. Polygamy is most likely that next boundary to push. That brings us to the point of the thread. The topic of debate is whether the repeal of DOMA has any sort of affect on the court's view of polygamy. Not whether the story references it or not. It doesn't need to. I referenced it in the OP to begin the debate. This isn't a debate where citing articles and stats is the way to go like in an economic debate. This is what people believe.

    I'm pretty sure absolutely no American court has said that.

    It might've helped if you opened the topic with an article or court decision about actual polygamy in the post-DOMA America..

    Not trying to convince you of anything man. Just showing you that you're missing the entire point of the thread. You're debating the details of DOMA when that isn't the issue. The issue is whether DOMA carries any weight in future rulings on polygamy. If you don't think it does, just say it doesn't and move along. If you do, say it does and move along. It's not that hard of a concept.
