    Civil rights means protecting the things you hate as well as the things you like.
    So can I marry three women and two men?

    No, because then you aren't entering a personal contract that designates one person as irreplacable.

    If you want to enter an arrangement with three women and two men, you may enter a contract of incorporation, I suppose. But as for a marriage or civil union, no.

    You would definitely have a full-house.

    Indeed, there are perhaps a few ways in which monogamy alone benefits the state (the reduction of sexually transmitted disease is one that is used) - but it's difficult to argue with the fact that the state has less of an interest in a marriage without children. On the flip side, a reduction in illigitamacy has long been used as a reason for why the state has an interest in promoting marriage.

    Sure thing! Dunno why you'd want to, but it's fine by me.

    Psh, "irreplacable". If perpetuality was a requirement of marriage divorce would not be legal - your relationship with your significant other can be terminated like any other contract.

    If the state had a vested interest in marriage for the sake of reproduction then only reproductively viable couples should be allowed to marry, and only be allowed to remain married as long as they produced children within a grace period of say; 3 years.

    No Supreme Court justice is going to agree with that.
    Depends who the justice was.
