    Those mentioned have nothing to do with whether or not same sex couples should get married. They can be challenged just as easily with just opposite sex couples allowed to marry.

    But, I will address them.

    I actually have no issue with people being in poly relationships. The only issue I have with multiple spouses is that, currently, our laws simply cannot handle them being designed around only one spouse per person (see my reply in thread pertaining to this issue). If we get the laws changed to make it so people can have multiple spouses without putting a huge burden on the state/society, I'm all for it. I think there absolutely should at least be something available for multiple spouses to get some of the very basic recognition as a legal kin, until those changes can be made.

    I'm for legalizing relations as close as first cousins in every state. There is no legitimate reason not to. I wouldn't fight against them, but also wouldn't fight for/completely support relationships/marriages between closer tier family members. I have already covered why in other threads.

    Societies define marriage, not courts. If you want the federal government to define marriage, let's get a convention together and discuss it. If not, the federal courts have no business ruling State's Constitutions "unconstitutional" as that subject is not covered any more than driver's licenses...

    People define marriage. Legal marriage is defined in how it operates, functions, not in how it is restricted.

    The federal courts do have a say, just like if a state tried to deny driver's licenses to Asians. The SCOTUS could strike down the law as unconstitutional, according to the 14th Amendment.

    So even though the United States Constitution has a specific amendment against States denying citizens due process and equal protection under the law, the Alabama amendment banning interracial marriage wasn't unconstitutional and the court never should have ruled against Virginia in the Loving case?

Checks and balances that protect ALL of our rights.
