    Yeah, you will. Because you're only going to have enough examples to cover the incredibly small fraction of polygamists that abuse their relationships.

    But go ahead, try and vilify it.

    The reason this is brought up in the Gay Marriage threads is obvious as is the poll. If you break down the core of Marriage, you invite such to occur. The refrain of "There is no connection between the two, you're just being a hyper partisan" ring hollow in the face of the truth, and that simple truth is that allowing gay marriage will lead to polygamy. Hell Obama's got Czar's in the WH that are pushing for such.

    I think it's a terrible thing to watch, society corroding like this.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't know any personally, it is after all illegal in America. I guess you could, ask some Hindu polygamists. They practice it sometimes and it doesn't seem to get ugly. Other than wackjob extremists, I doubt you could provide me any examples of polygamy being harmful. Just because you can't pull 4 wives, doesn't mean you should be jealous man.

    I think doing away with no-fault divorce would be a good first step, along with a period of trial separation and mandatory marital counseling for those divorces whose grounds do not involve criminal activity. Domestic violence is already a criminal offense; reinstating adultery as an offense (for spouse and homewrecker) with prosecution at the wronged parties' discretion, unless there is authorization signed by all spouses, would be a good second step. I believe that it is the concept of "no-fault" in the legal system that has led to the perception of "no scandal" in the social system.

    There's no need to censor the television. Make divorce suck again, and television will portray it accordingly.

    Society corrodes whenever we allow for discrimination to flourish on a massive scale.

    Polygamy, and gay marriage is not up to you to decide what people do with their lives. Gays can't help it and some men or women would be very happy with more than one partner that is legally recognized. And just because you legalize it does not mean it will flourish.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    I don't have a problem with polygamy, however, I can see some problems with a normal marriage license including polygamy. I figure though that there could be some sort of supplemental marriage license to cover polygamists.

    I do think that a couple of ground rules for such unions would be necessary. Such as, all parties involved would have to be of age and in total agreement in taking all other parties involved as their partners. A partial divorce could get a little messy and weird, especially if there are more than three people involved and/or children. Child custody and visitation rights would definitely have to be handled case by case.
