    Not sure, but something like that would be the territory of the states to regulate.

    That's an interesting point.

    From a man's perspective, I suppose I would be concerned that Bill Gates & his buddies then get a gazillion wives, while the guy on disability gets none?

    Then again, Carly Fiorina & Martha Stewart might make-out alright.

    Or, did I just reduce humankind to money grabbing marital leaches?

    Yes, it would. It's also an example of many issues that would arise from polygamy.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    Might make some men question the wisdom of polygamy. My wives are divorcing me... they're taking 2/3.

    That's a district court, and although I have not read that decision, I would argue that, especially with this most recent decision, the two would not confer the same meaning.

    I find it quite amusing that homophobes seem to think the polygamy and SSM are related. The truth is that polgamy is only legal in muslim countries that deny gays even basic rights. So the truth is the legalization of SSM makes polygamy even less likely to accepted. None of the 21 countries that have endorsed SSM have allowed polygamy too. The idea that we will be the 1st is laughable.

    Any man who thinks he can keep two women happy, when the rest of us have to struggle to keep even one happy, is not grounded in the real world anyway.

    No - you see, buildings don't have constitutional rights, people do - which explains the presence of crosses and stars dangling from chains around the necks of government employees inside government buildings and on the court house lawn.

    The government doesn't endorse religious belief either. So if a government employee's personal religious beliefs interferes with their job serving the public, then they should be fired.
    Thankfully we have rule of law that protects our rights from the "FIRE THEM!" mobs wielding torches and pitchforks that would see those rights stripped away...

    Tim-
    What language from the new holding would you point to as your reason?
