    Polygamy Advocate Groups Hail Judge Ruling in Utah

    I would like to say that while I did not agree with DOMA, many users on this website predicted this exact situation would happen as a result. The gay community is winning victory after victory in the same sex marriage realm. However, every action has a reaction. This, I believe, is a reaction to that. This judge really has no precedent anymore to rule against polygamy. Nor does any other Federal judge really.

    Re: Polygamy Advocate Groups Hail Judge Ruling in Utah

    U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said in the decision handed down Friday that a provision in Utah law forbidding cohabitation with another person violated the First Amendment right of freedom of religion.
    Has nothing to do with gay marriage.

    Utah makes it illegal to even purport to be married to multiple partners or live together.

    Under Waddoups' ruling, bigamy remains illegal in Utah only in the literal sense, such as when someone fraudulently acquires more than one marriage license.
    Can't say I disagree with the ruling anyway.

    Why do you care if some wacky people in Utah want to marry each other? How does that even remotely effect your life?

    Some people really do mind, I don't. That said, it appears that it's simply cohabitation with multiple partners that is now legal, not polygamy.

    Yep. Technically, my housemates and I would be considered living illegally in the same house. It was an overly strict law and it was stupid. Nothing to do with "gay marraige" but hey the haters never hesitate to burn down those strawmen wherever they see them. And if they don't see one they'll build one and burn it down.

    Well in my opinion it's just freedom of freedom, not freedom of religion since anyone might choose to cohabitate with more than one.

    I see no problem with gay marriage, any more than I see a problem with polygamy.

    Personally, I think if we were minding our own business, we wouldn't have time to stick our noses in the bedrooms of others.

    The only issue I have with polygamy is that the laws set up by the Federal and state governments to handle marriages don't deal with polygamy at all, for example if a man is married to two when and one wishes to divorce him how is that handled? Also tax laws which have different rules/benefits for married couples don't work with polygamy either. But if Utah were to change its laws to add text to deal with such issues, fine go ahead by all means.

    Aside from that if these people are simply getting married in their churches, ie marriages not recognized by the state, and then living together to raise a family, I got no problem whatsoever so long as the children can be taken care up which is where already existing organizations like child services comes into play.

    Only if it were one of those polygamy communities which drive out males to deal with the male/female imbalance or otherwise verges on cult like control of its members, only then would I support the law getting into their lives.

    Gotta read past the headline dude. The ruling was about cohabitation laws, not marriage.

    You don't get to deny homosexuals rights because of the possible ripple effects. Fight for or against an issue based on its merits and its merits alone. One could also point to interracial marriage as a stepping stone for both of the aforementioned battles occurring presently. That does not in any way diminish the validity of that particular position.
