For several centuries, anyone could marry anyone else, or really anything else. The Catholic Church didn't start dealing with marriages until Pope Innocent III around the 13th century. Any couple could just walk into a town and claim to be married and they would more likely be considered as such. There was rarely any proof. You keep trying to attribute values to marriage that have never been universal to begin with.
    I don't care about 13th century Europe. In the here and now marriage is a cornerstone of our society and value system and both are under attack by those who want to change America.

    Absurd argument. Gays want to enter into marriages. Your personal definition of "destroyed" is far from the normal definition and very much subjective opinion, which is meaningless to a real debate on this.

    ROFLMMFAO!!!!!!!

    Oh how clueless you are. There are thousands of us polys out here who would to have polygamy legal who are neither Muslim nor Mormon. So again I ask you why should they get to have multiple spouses and the rest of us do not?

    Obviously you did not read post #60 from the gay guy that hates the institution of marriage.

    "Good, it shouldn't be an institution. And more liberties is better than a phony institution that only has value, apparently, based on people being excluded.

    Don't like it, sorry. "

    I am fine with polygamy. Bigamy is different as its when one man is married to 2 or more women that don't know about each other - thus no consent.

    Do you have any information to back up that it isn't also the most common form as of now? While I know that there are polyamorous people out there, there simply aren't that many from what I've heard about. While I think most people are pretty good people, polyamory requires people to be more unselfish than the average person tends to be, especially when it comes to love and relationships. In cases of polygamy where it is one man with multiple wives, especially wives that have been taught from basically birth that their place is to marry young, take care of their husband, and have many kids, and that their husband will have other wives, that unselfishness is not needed.

    While I think it would be a great thing if those that I described weren't the majority or most common, the pessimistic side of me doubts I am wrong, unless it happened really recently.
