I'm sure I'm not the first (I'm not interested in reading the first 163,906 posts) but it seems to me as slightly inane, that the government has ANYTHING to do with marriage.
Perhaps in the pre-1960s, before "the pill", but now it seems more and more ludicrous. With the realization anyone could partner with anyone without lasting societical "shame" or govermental approval our society changed.
Without the "they'll have babies and improve our society" rational, there's no longer a valid political reason for government influence and control.
I'd suggest the government back away from the "partner approval" process and allow marriage, between whoever, be handled by religous groups. Let the government confine themselves to the roll of servants (ever hear of "public servants?") and process paperwork (passports and such), and not make decisions about our lives.
Associated with this would be the repeal of the absurd tax breaks given to married people in the hope they'll have kids...we don't need more kids now..we need an answer to overpopulation. And this tax income should help our country out of the fiscal hole we sit in now.
Sorry if I'm just repeating what thousands may have already suggested.
What do you have to come here for with all that common sense and spoil it!

Actually the topic at its root is about marriage equality.
Unfortunately your limited brain capacity doesn't afford you the opportunity to critically analyze complex topics.
As a battered and bruised survivor of the off topic police state of this thread, I thank you! My every mention of marriage equality for poly is SHOUTED DOWN!

Mention polygamy here and all hell breaks loose. As you know.

Nobody cares about a man with a bunch of wives in polygamous relationships, but what about a woman with a bunch of husbands?

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SEX!!!!!!!!!!
YES IT IS!!!!!! Other wise why would it matter who married who. C'mon Jared, think about it. Marriage, not individual ones, but the institution is about the sexes, what they do, have sex, and what that sex creates, little Jareds. That's why blood relatives, other than first cousins, are barred from marrying
It's about the rights and benefits that we are denied when we are in the same type of relationship as straight married couples.
You were married, had all those bennies, just like any other OPPOSITE SEX married couples. Let's not for get the mixed orientation OSCs.
. Medical benefits and rights of spouses, tax benefits, inheritance etc. 1,138 rights and benefits we are denied.
So u want a gov't Benny pkg with your same sex partner?

So what? If all participants are up for it, more power to 'em. Think of the benefits the kids will have, two moms and a dad or two dads and a mom. More is better right? So long as they're loved and not abused.
A duplicated redumbant half is better that a mom and dad? Do you have ANY common sense?

Which of your parents would you eliminate?

Idiot.
