    Polygamy is not nearly as conductive of a thriving economy as the nuclear family is, so I'm inclined to oppose it.

    They just insist on doing it in your face and forcing you to recognize it as MARRIAGE. It's like a gay parade; you always have those few that have to come out on their hands and knees with dog collars and leashes, or dressed up like Liza Minelli. They just want to get in your face about it.
    So, you support a SEPARATE type of union for gays. One that is somewhat EQUAL to marriage in terms of rights, etc.

    Separate but equal?

    Where have I heard that before... it's oddly familiar...

    I'll go one better. Clan Marriages. A marriage between 0 or more men and 0 or more women. You can really share the economic, household and educational duties with this type of marriage. Given 3 guys and 3 girls, say 2 guys and a girl work, 1 guy goes for a PhD, 1 girl travels for research in Turkey, and the last girl raises to 8 children. Or whatever. This is the way of the future where everyone has outside interests but you still want a nuclear family.

    These are such cloudy areas. Do you limit the number of partners due to possible negative affect on economy ? Do you limit the number of children one can have with the Octomom in mind?

    Perhaps neither you should legislate but just don't make the taxpayers rush in to pay for their tryst.
