I don't know who is more pathetic.
The women who have settled for a life of sharing the same penis or the idiot who thinks 4 wives are better than one.

They are all mouth breathing morons.

These types of people in society are the same ones who think the rules don't apply to them. So anyone that supports these types of behavior in our society should be removed any way necessary!! When will it stop!!

How does a loving committed same-sex couple getting married have anything to do with a misogynistic a-hole wanting to control 4 women?

Most men can't stand having ONE wife, much less want 3 more nagging him 24/7.

How does a committed plural marital arrangement, of consenting adults, being legally recognized have anything to do with two men, or two women wanting the state to recognize their relationships as "marriage"?

So you are going to demonize one while praising the other? Sounds like a hypocrite talking to me! Love is love ,isn't it?

I'd rather see one man married to four women, than one unmarried man making babies with multiple women and NOT taking responsibilities for his babies.

And yet, the marriages of gays are now recognized in 18 countries and have been for over 12 years, and in not one of those countries has polygamy been legalized or is it being considered.

And yet, when the legal battle over Prop 8 was being waged, this slippery slope argument was presented and dismissed by the court as having no correlation.

And yet, the laws preventing gays from marrying are not the same laws preventing people from having multiple marriages. Thus corrections to one set of laws won't have any effect on the other sets of laws.

The only people pretending there is a connections between the marriages of gay people and other people having multiple marriages are the people that can't establish a valid reason to deny gays the right to marry.

But feel free to present some statistical data from the past 12 years that shows how your statement can be supported!!!

I agree I don't know why a woman would allow herself to believe that she does not deserve a man to give him all of her but rather asks that he be shared. Bottom line he is not God so he can not take some mighty position similar position of sharing. OK so "love should be multiplied not divided." What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If I'm a wife I'm going to be taking multiple partners, cuz hey padner (slang) it works for you and it works for me.

These women need to raise up and realize they need a man that will love them and only them and keep the rotation for when your doing that single unaccountable thing. You don't keep sewing your wild oats in marriage and try to tell people it't not exactly that.

Nothing is wrong with consenting people participating in a marriage with multiple spouses of any gender. Arranged marriages are a different story but that has nothing to do with this. Slippery slope arguments like people marrying animals, dead people, or sex toys are not valid because those cannot give consent much less file for a marriage license.

Same sex marriage is now legal in almost every state. Finally. Like 10 more to go.

And then yes I do want to see multiple spouse marriages and inter family marriages follow the same path.

"Any 2+ consenting living human beings."

That is how marriage needs to be defined.

Yeah but animals, dead people and sex toys are much cheaper to divorce. No prenups.

I'm not/will ever be a polygamist, and am not defending them. I can see where you're coming from, and, believe you don't get the point. The Browns allege to do this because of religious convictions. Whether it's sincere or not, I wouldn't know, so I have to take them on their word. You are looking
at it from a different unrelated angle.

Well, this guy isn't the first to father children with multiple women (or vice versa). The fact that they're married means they're saving the tax payers money.
