I personally know another poly unit up near Baltimore. If you look at the links I provided in post #29, you can see that those of us who are not FLDS are all across the country. And very few of us believe in the abuse the FLDS of the Jeffery's ilk do. Hell there are even some independent FLDS who denounce what those in the compounds do. I honestly want to see such studies and if I knew who to talk to and could get the money I'd start one.
    I respect your right to live your life as you see fit, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You also need to respect the law of the land. You say you have felt this way for a long time, but in the situation of gays, the field of psychiatry noted the widespread nature, its natural psychological root for those gays, and stated we should not try to "convert" the gay but rather society needed to change. I don't find any such support for your position. When it comes to laws, they exist to set boundaries, and in many cases regulate legal boundaries. I just don't see the parallel to the situation of gays. You can live however you chose, you just don't get access to all the benefits that marriage confers, nor the legal protections. That is the way gay couples did it in the past.

    I can't work out why anyone would want to complicate their life this badly. "Two's company..." is not just an idle saying.

    How wide spread homosexuality was, was skewed for quite a while as people hid their orientation. Much like people hid their love and attraction for those outside their skin color. And a preference for a skin color is certainly more of a choice than orientation. It's only recently, relatively speaking that people have been coming out more regularly and at younger ages. So I fully expect more and more polys going public in much the same way the homosexuality did. And much in the same ways that gays have been fighting for progress so will we. Interracial, same sex and poly marriages are not the same but they have many of the same arguments against them, and they have progressed in society in much the same patterns.

    Once again the false presumption that there will be one gender that is alone. In my marriage there are two of each

    Then that would not have been an exception to the general rule and not fallen under my statement, correct? Correct.

    I'm sure even being the one can go against you.

    Because of the legal argument used to legalize SSM. You don't have to legalize polygamy based on the US justification for SSM, the SCOTUS decision stripped away any solid definition of the word marriage.

    Why wasn't that true in any of the other countries? Stop dodging the question. The SC did not declare open season on all forms of marriage. That is a ridiculous assumption.
