    Should bigamy be legal

    So a marriage between same sex couples is now legal across the land so the logical nest issue is bigamy.If the same sex can be married why not multiple partners? It sees like the term marriage and family are now open ended terms and are being redefined daily so if you are for gay marriage you surly must be for bigamy too I would think. Or are you?

    Ditto Dragonfly. I'm already discussing one where the OP was pretty much exact for yours (not necessarily word for word) save it said polygamy not bigamy.

    Although I am interested in knowing whether or not you see polygamy as separate from bigamy, and discussing from there.

    Do you really mean polygamy? Even in a polygamous relationship each partner is in only one marriage at a time, although they may be not be the only man/woman in that marriage. Polygamy is about removing the limit of two marriage partners while bigamy permits one to be an multiple marriages at the same time. SSM seeks to keep the two partner limit but to (only) remove the opposite gender requirement for the partners, while bigamy seeks to allow marriage partnerships to overlap.

    Complaining about dozens of threads on a specific topic is ridiculous, given it's very common around here. Just like every five years we rehash the same stuff over, there's not much chance of changing that.

    It should also be noted that bigamy only applies to the legal status. So one can be in a polygamous marriage, albeit one not legally recognized, without engaging in bigamy.

    Exactly, why not if all parties are consenting human adults.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Of course people should honor and respect other peoples right to choose, bigamy polygamy whatever as long as it is a legal contract between the family, who cares? If a man and a women want to bring another women into the marriage they should have a right to all three sign a contract to ensure it, however if the wife doesn't sign the contract maybe it wouldn't be legal? The point is, is if government should stay out of marriage based on sex IT SHOULD STAY OUT BASED ON EVERYTHING. its an invasion of civil liberties and rights given to us by life to choose who we want to marry and what our ideal family is, not for the government to decide what the ideal family is. Remember, the government serves us we don't serve them.

    The arguments in favor of SSM:

    1. Children do best in two parent married households. SSM therefore benefits children.
    2. Marriage promotes social stability.
    3. No good reason to oppose it.


    For other types of marriage I would expect supporters to show similar reason for support. I have not seen such from supporters of bigamy/polygamy, but would certainly be willing to look at their arguments and data if they want to present it.

    Re: Should bigamy be legal

    Why stop there. How about bestiality or object sexuality.

    On a side note I'm against polygamy simply because often 1 wife is too many.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.
