    Polygamy

    If your state were to propose a law or ballot initiative allowing for persons to be married to more than one partner, would you support it? Why or why not?

    As long as the other current marriage rules apply absolutley yes!
    As long as its between CONSENTING ADULTS i have no problem with it because while I may never do it, its just like Gay marriage, its none of my buisness and has no effect on me.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    I'm assuming that all other marriage laws apply, like only between consenting adults.

    I couldn't care less who consenting adults marry. So why wouldn't I vote for it? I have no reason NOT to.

    Re: Polygamy

    Who other people want to marry has absolutely no bearing on me whatsoever. Therefore, I'd vote for it.

    Re: Polygamy

    Voted yes. I see no reason to vote no. But I would like to point out that I don't think these sort of things should be subject to popular vote. It's no one else's business but my own if I want more than one husband. I do think it would require a complete rewrite of a lot of laws regarding benefits, inheritance issues and child custody though. Polygamy would be more complicated for the government to deal with as it involves more than two people.

    The state should get out of the marriage business all together.

    I think that the government should get out of marriage altogether. And not only do I think polygamy should be legal, I think multiple marriages should be legal as well.

    By that, I mean let's say a man has several wives. While those women are married to him and he to them, I also think those women should be allowed to maintain a marriage to other men. It seems only fair to me.

    With regards to all this, I believe the only thing the state should have any control over is enforcement of child support by the biological mother and biological father of a child. I also think DNA tests should be done to determine the biological father of a child, and he should be the one to provide child support for those children he sired. That's about it, though.
