    They don't name all 700 in the bible... and to be fair some were concubines and not wives.

    The historic term and definition of marriage has been forever destroyed. It is now just a meaningless arbitrary word at the top of a piece of paper, .......add as many names of different sexes, ages and species to the 'marriage' license you freakin want.
    The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!

    It has a legal meaning in the courts.
    It has a spiritual meaning if it has been consecrated by religion.
    And it has a personal meaning for the individuals who consider themselves married.

    Nothing has changed in a heterosexual marriage. It is what it has always been.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    However though, and again, it's only conservatives arguing for polygamy and incest sister-cousin marriages. Those marriages mostly apply to religious people. Especially sister, cousin, mother, dad, mom marriages.
    Wow! way to try to conflate incest with polygamy. Sadly you are most mistaken as tho who is calling for polygamy. The poly community consists of people of most religions and even atheists. Most includes the various pagan religions as well. We are liberals and libertarians as well as conservatives. Go to post #93 where I give you links to three seperate groups dealing with polyamory and polygamy.

    Now. The hard part. What about the financial impact to the state and the electorate of being married or not being married? What of the financial difference to the state? (mind you I'm just asking questions, I don't know specifically).
    We might have to revisit what benefits spouses receive from the various governments.

    Ones right should not be subject to the convenience of the government.

    And, considering that Bigamy laws were around BEFORE all of these welfare programs.... that argument shouldn't hold water anyways.
    Bigamy could still be on the books along side polygamy. If polygamy is treated as a single marriage, then bigamy, having two separate marriages at the same time could still be illegal.

    Spouses, not wives. If you want to stick with the one man multiple wives stereotype at least call it by the correct name, polygyny. polygamy can be any combination of genders, such as my unit which consists of 2 husbands and 2 wives

    Here's something from the OT.

    17 And he shall not acquire many wives for himself, lest his heart turn away, nor shall he acquire for himself excessive silver and gold.
    Not many but a few. Define a few. Define excessive. Since God didn't call out Solomon, I'm guessing 300 wives and an additional 400 concubines is neither many nor excessive.

    Of course it has been redefined. It has constantly been redefined across the centuries and millennium. Including being redefined into 1 man 1 woman.

    You mean like incest was part of that plan? After all how else did Adam and Eve's kids find someone to have kids of their own with if not each other. Oh yeah and Noah's children and grandchildren. It's unclear whether he had anymore children after the flood, but the grandkids had to mate with each other. First cousins.

    Not necessarily. First off marriages of the past were typically arranged and love was not a factor. Even today, there are marriages of convenience. Prior to recent event, it was not unheard of for a gay male couple to each marry a lesbian couple for the legal benefits and such. While sexual attractiveness would certainly be present in a vast majority of marriages, poly or mono, but it is not a requirement.

    Naa. Don't be projecting like that, it doesn't suit you.

    I favor a reasonable and self-restraining society, with no need for a mob.

    What is a "restrained society" to YOU, is an oppressive society based upon the desires of the mob to those whose lifestyle is not worthy of legal recognition to you.

    Meh. People are born gay, people are not born as polygamists.

    Sort of

    The priviliges and benefits of marriage are legally justified by the societal benefits of marriage. It could be argued that plural marriages do not confer those societal benefits and so the state has no legal basis for providing benefits to them.
