DUH!
Good lord SSM has been around for over 30 years now in some places and polygamy is still where it was BEFORE SSM came along.
You want the law changed fine. Go for it. But it's wrong to bog down my rights because you can't be happy with some abstract moral dilemma.
SSM equates to "traditional marriage" in a way polygamy can't.
In binary it does.

So straight and gay couples have special rights then. Because if one or two groups only have the right to marry then if you want to marry two, you are being discriminated against. Lets have a even playing field all the way around.(Notice how how they don't mind discriminating as long as it is not them?)

Gays can get legally married in a state where it is recognized. Univeral legal recognition is just around the corner. Polygamy has nothing to do with it. Once SSM is universally recognized, the argument against repeal of the Morrill Act will actually be stronger due to immigration concerns. The slippery slope fallacy becomes more idiotic.

How many can I afford? You think I was born yesterday. I would not marry any of them if they did not have a good paying profession. It is can they afford me.

The only women interested romantically in someone like you would be a woman with very limited options.

Smart women would not want to rub flesh with the likes of you. They would be afraid of your stupidity rubbing off on them. With so many options out there,who needs an old curmudgeon past his prime slobbering all over their body?

It's not that I agree or disagree, it's just that this thread isn't about polygamy, polyandry, or plural marriage.
Of course not. People need to rethink the slippery slope if they haven't already done so. The bottom line is nobody will repeal the Morrill Act or over-rule it in the courts. Simply won't happen.

Nope. Nobody is going to repeal the Morrill Act so basically, you just made a pointless post.

You're onto something. Your GF should be arrested and charged with bestiality. Come to think of it,according to the bible,you're living in sin.

Marriage seems very important to you. If that is the case,why don't you marry your girlfriend? Or is she not good enough?

As they say in the hinterlands,why buy the cow when you're getting the milk for free.

Dance, dance, dance all you want. You can't twist it to fit your contorted argument.

Every one person, irrespective of their gender, has the same right as every other person to marry one person of their choosing, irrespective of their gender.

There is no longer gender discrimination and the rights are precisely the same for everyone. You can't fit polygamy into that anywhere. It is a different fight which people have a right to fight, but it is wholly unrelated to marriage equality.

That's just another variant of the "Slippery Slope" fallacy.

An imagined possibility does not trump a demonstrated reality.

Wrong again. It is not a sin to live together. It is a sin if you have sex. You don't know much about my operation so I understand.

You mean that law they passed back in the 90's that makes it possible to arrest a minister in Indiana for practicing his faith? Jail him for 3 months and fine him (or her)$1000?

And how come all you holy rollers are OK with the government going into a church and arresting it's pastor simply because that Church practices the Golden Rule better than you do?

Granted,since the operation. But what about before? For someone that cares so much about marriage,you seem to take the cowardly way out when it comes to your relationship. Frankly,it appears you're using this woman's good intentions to care for you.

If marriage is such an important subject to you,why are you avoiding it? Too much responsibility?
