Nobody would be discriminated against or their civil liberties lost if the government employee just minds their own business and does the job they are paid to do. The government doesn't get to decide who gets married to whom, anymore. So therefore, neither does the government employee.
: We seem to follow Roman law, which meant the first-born inherited the bulk of the estate, including titles. English nobility still follows that law, which is why we read that so-and-so is third or fifth or whatever in line for the throne. The King of Siam had many wives, as an example, but the firstborn of his legal first wife inherited the throne. The rest were provided for, of course, but only one was the ruler of the country, and they were trained from early childhood to assume that role. In this Country, the rules are not so formal, but I would assume the offspring of the first legal wife takes precedence over later born children of any of any of the wives he may have in a polygamous marriage.

- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
