    I believe polygamy should be legal too.

    They can have 4 wives via personal/religious ceremonies.

    But limiting the number of spouses a person can have at one time can be shown to further a legitimate state interest, at least so far. Limiting a person's spouse based on their gender/sex however cannot be shown to further any legitimate state interest.

    There are days that my one husband is one too many, I can't imagine more than one. But that said, I think polygamy should be legal, same as any other marriage.

    By the way, I answered 5-10 in the poll which I just saw was a year old. Did someone necro this thread?

    Are people required to celebrate every time same sex marriage is legalized somewhere if they support same sex marriage?

    I posted a large update on facebook personally when I found out about the votes in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington. I consider that "celebrating". Many others did much more, especially if this meant they could actually legally marry who they wanted to in their state.

    You look very silly. Talking about personal things you know nothing about. How could you know?

    I'm still pretty psyched about it and proud that my state was the first to legalize SSM by popular vote.

    Why would we? If there was a campaign to bring back polygamy, I'd vote for it. I think it's stupid for women but I believe in equal rights and personal liberty. Choice.

    However any legislation IMO would only be able to accord them the same tax breaks/benefits as couples, no more, no less.

    For years now I've been saying that people are going to start arguing that, and been called a Slippery-Slope-Fallacymongerer for it

    If you voted "Never" do you really think SSM will never come to pass nationally? Or is that just a protest vote against something you know is inevitable?

    I dont see it as a slippery slope issue because it's between consenting adults. I dont see it happening but if there were enough people that supported it, I could not say it was wrong, immoral (again, I think it's dumb for women but that's their problem).

    Just IMO, slippery slope applies to things like marrying your dog...which cannot consent. Or pedophiles being allowed to marry children. Again, consent.

    I disagreed with anyone argueing against polygamy following SSM. I know that even other restrictions to marriage might be brought up but if the marriage has to do with people or things that cant consent then it wont be the same arugement and I wont support it.
