    The right to marriage includes the ability to marry as many people as you want. There is no reason the state should be able to restrict the rights of people.

    If marriage is defined as the union of similar genders, and dissimilar genders, then what logical basis can there be to deny a marriage based upon both.

    This issue is appealing and makes sense to me up to a point when one man is allowed to marry more women. But if women want equal treatment and want to be married to more men also then it becomes chaotic.

    Basically who is having it with whom!? I know DNA may solve the puzzle of "Who's kid is this anyway that I have to take care of!" Still having the issue applied in women just as equally is really confusing to me.

    Since marriage is not about creating a family but raising a family, your entire post is inaccurate and irrelevant.

    Surely then it's just as hypocritical for people who support only heterosexual marriage to be against polygamy?

    Yes and no.

    I'm against institutional polygamy, because it's really no different from slavery. Women who grow up in those situations are never given any choice, and they are intentionally inhibited from attaining self-sufficiency, in order to prevent them from leaving.

    But people who are in consensual polyamorous relationships of any gender combination? Yes, they should be allowed to marry.

    It is not the government's business to decide whose consensual relationship is or isn't moral. Particularly when it recognizes drunk people getting hitched in Vegas. The idea that the government has anything to "protect" in the institution of marriage is laughable.

    Let me guess, you're one of those people who think when two men you don't even know are married it somehow affects your own marriage?

    No.

    It is not possible for two men to be married. By definition, marriage has always been, is, and will always be a union between a man and a woman. It is the basis of every stable human society that ever has or ever will exist.

    My concern is over the severe damage that will unavoidably be done to our society, and to everyone in it, if we are forced to accept a sick, vulgar mockery of marriage as being in any way comparable to the real thing. Our society can only be as stable as its foundation. If we make our foundation out of garbage, then that is what our society will become.

    No.

    Gay marriage has been allowed before and marriage is not something that is set in stone to some sort of standard.
