    Well, in Utah. I do wonder if any other states have equally idiotic laws.

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

    It really isn't my fault if you fail to communicate what SSM has to do with an issue that did not involve SSM in any way.

    OOOO!!! finally a law I could go for!!!

    Re this case -

    I'm not sure how the govt can dictate who lives in a house together, so the judge's decision makes sense. Glad he kept the part about the marriage license though - that more than one is bigamy.

    It's a very tough issue. I have no problems with polyamory among consenting adults who are well aware of their legal rights - and also the lack of them (so that they draw up contracts, power of attorney, wills, etc to protect themselves). I have HUGE problems with traditional fundamentalist polygamists who marry young girls to old men, who chase out their young men so there are more girls for the old men, who don't educate their women and girls, and who have the extra wives live off of govt subsidies.

    But maybe if they can be brought "into the light" their kids would learn there are other ways to live, and wouldn't live this life unless they freely chose it as adults. And maybe we could stop the underage marriages.

    My feelings, exactly.

    My sneaking suspicion is that any law opened up to serve the former would be end up being little more than a vehicle for facilitating the latter. The last thing we need is to be more like Yemen.

    Read my post again, if you're interested - if you understand my position, there's no problem - if you don't understand my position, you never will. No need to belabour the issue.

    No thanks, I'm not interested in reviewing your failure to communicate.

This judge really has no precedent anymore to rule against polygamy. Nor does any other Federal judge really.

    Clearly this Judge is a Slippery-Slope Homophobe, to think that Precedent matters in Rule of Law.

    Two women, two problems.

    Seriously though, I have always wondered where the money comes from to support these multiple familes with a lot of kids.

    What kind of job does the father have to have to support 10 kids or more?

    People can "shack-up," with as many people as they want, anywhere in America, right?
    I believe that is called a commune.
