    No society is ever perfect. But I think it is a better way than any other way I can think of.

    I am sure you can point out where in the ruling it would be construed as allowing polygamy. Actually, I am doubtful, dunno why.

    This is the way I look at it.

    I only get to live here, as me once.
    The more people try to make things difficult for me to live, the less happy I am.
    I don't want to waste, something I consider precious to me, following lousy misguided rules.

    That case could very well be made.
    The main argument is that by making marriage only between a man and a woman, it violates the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment by discriminating against gays. But I fail to see why that doesn't mean that 1. laws defining marriage as between one man and one woman discriminate against people who want to marry multiple partners; and 2. laws forbidding minors to (consensually) marry discriminate against pedophiles.
    Granted, that second one is less likely to apply, since minors don't have full legal rights.

    Still, I'm agnostic about this.

    Does it somehow change your marriage?
    Do tell because if it, all of sudden makes your spouse not love you anymore, we should look into it.
