Yes. All humans should be protected under the law.
No. Marriage is between one man and one woman, period.
No. Only homosexuals and heterosexuals should be allowed to marry.
I donít care what they do as long as they stay out of my business.

Polygamy has been practiced in numerous countries and throughout history (oh...add in the obligatory "without ruining the institution of marriage" argument). Precedence-wise, there is far better foundation for allowing for polygamy than there is gay marriage. Arguing for one and not the other is rather...goofy.
Of course. Why shouldn't consenting adults be able to marry multiple partners if they want? All of you are just thinking of situations such as have occurred within the extremist Mormon community and you are applying it to ALL polygamist marriages.
I saw a documentary once about a woman who had two boyfriends and they all lived together and wanted to be married. So it's not always a dirty old man with 6 teenage wives. Of course all of the same laws would apply regarding minors and things like that.
It's funny too that people are SO concerned with that aspect when men ALREADY marry minors. Why would a polygamy situation make one MORE apt to be taken advantage of than just a marriage between two?
Sane, consenting adults should be able to do ANYTHING they want to each other.
If a guy wants to marry 50 different women - and they all agree - go ahead.
Just make sure they are all sane adults.
And I do not have a cat - but if I did, I think I would call him/her Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.

Consenting adults should be able to marry whomever they want.
