    Talk about an insurance nightmare.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Re: Federal Gay Marriage Ban Is Ruled Unconstitutional

    What "Legitimate" government interest is served by prohibiting gay marriage?

    So if polygamy is legal, and I have 15 wives and 46 kids, can I now insure them all with my single employee insurance policy?

    Can I claim all of them as 61 dependants on my federal income taxes?

    Can I get a welfare check based on 61 dependants?

    This is going to be AWESOME!

    You could have 61 dependents and never get married. So, I fail to see the issue.

    If polygamy was accepted as legal marriage, this would be far more the norm, not so much the exception, because it would be monetarily rewarded.

    You know, like welfare.

    yeah, it would be as much the norm as people doing it now. So, no increase. If people want to do it, they can do it now.
