    "Marriage" can be defined however you choose. We hear phrases like "He's married to his job" and things like that all the time. Obviously a man can't be legally hitched to his job but the point of using the word "married" makes the intent of the comment known.

    It's easy to get married. What you do with it from there is what's difficult.

    It is an option for personal marriages. It isn't for legal marriage because it requires to people providing signatures. Marriage serves a legal purpose. And that purpose is not to show the world that you have feelings for someone/something. It is to establish a legal relationship so that the two people are better able to deal with issues that come up during their lives together and to make financial/legal/medical situations easier.

    I am all for establishing some form of marriage that works for multiple spouses, that has more paperwork and/or less legal abilities (no one should be allowed to have 20, 50, 100, 10000 spouses granted citizenship/green cards/legal residence just due to their marriage, that would be way too hard on our economy).

    OK. But that statement was made more towards your intollereance of the intolerant. You're free to "call them out" all you want so long as you don't solicit government force.

    Plea to stop Oregon same-sex marriages : SCOTUSblog


    The National Organization of Marriage (NOM) has asked the court to allow them to defined Oregon's ban on same-sex marriage since the government entities have decided that the discriminatory practice is unconstitutional and will not be defending the measure.

    Given that the SCOTUS ruled that 3rd party intervenes do not have standing to defend such laws (see Hollingsworth v. Perry, 2013) what are the chances of them succeeding?

    I'd say extremely small given that the situation is basically the same thing that we saw in regards to Prop 8, and the ruling there was only made last year.
