    Not necessarily. The laws don't need to be changed all that much, if at all, to include gay marriage, as the arrangement still involves just two people. When more than two people are involved, especially if there are inheritance and custody issues involved, it all becomes way, way more complicated.

Come up with workable solutions and I'll be the first one to vote for legal polygamous marriages.
    Well, there are business relationships that envolve more than two parties in legal contracts. A polygamous relationship could be approached in similar fashion.

    But it would become more necessary to recognize polygamy legally if gay marriage is recognized legally.

    Why approve of one minority group and not another?

    Only two options are given as that is how an election would work.
    I do not believe in state-sanctioned marriages for anyone, so, no, I wouldn't vote to legalize another form of it lest I become a hypocrite.

    Are you really telling us that's what you think?
    Yeah, I think gay-marriage should be created through legislation.

    Got a problem with that?

    As Cephus said, if the legal complications arising from more than two people entering a marriage contract are ironed out, I see no reason to not allow it.

    Same sex marriage is legal in Canada. If it were not and I could vote, I would vote against this. Same sex couples can get equal rights with civil unions. Why must they call it marriage?

    Which would be fine if when a partner left a business, they got to take a certain percentage of the business with them, but that's just not how it necessarily works. Like I said, there may be a solution to these questions, we just haven't had it worked out yet. My issue with it is not that I care if the polygamous get married, I just don't want to see the courts even more clogged with messy divorces for which we have no idea how to solve.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Not at all, so long as it is identical in every way to heterosexual marriage, including using the same terminology. Works for me.

    Right, so long as we understand each other.

    Gays want to marry? Fine, great, pull up a chair; but gay-marriage will be what hetero-marriage is for, raising children, and NOT the expression of individual rights, AND gay marriage will be established through perfectly constitutional means, not the court system.
