A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Here is a link to the judges decision.
So, no multiple legal marriages, but cohabitation is ok.The court finds the cohabitation prong of the Statute unconstitutional on numerous
grounds and strikes it. As a result, and to save the Statute, the court adopts the interpretation of
“marry” and “purports to marry,” and the resulting narrowing construction of the Statute, offered
by the dissent in State of Utah v. Holm, 2006 UT 31, ¶¶ 131-53, 137 P.3d 726, 758-66, thus
allowing the Statute to remain in force as prohibiting bigamy in the literal sense—the fraudulent or otherwise impermissible possession of two purportedly valid marriage licenses for the purpose
of entering into more than one purportedly legal marriage.

Regardless of how folks spin and argue around here, the polygamists will use for their own benefit, and successfully, the court's wiggling interpretations made to make gays fit into marriage.
Whether you think that's good, bad or just okay, it will happen, is happenning.
I have no doubt in my mind that someday we as a nation will more or less wake up to the reality that how someone else constructs their marriage (two men, two women, one of each, two of each, two of one and half a dozen of the other) makes no difference to anyone outside of that marital or family unit. I simply reject the argument that same-sex marriage has in any way paved the way. Discrimination on the basis of gender or orientation and discrimination on the basis of quantity are, legally, two totally different things.
One of you will end up here next!
