    Why gay men want to be apart of the failing institution of marriage, is beyond One. Other than for wanting Equal legal rites for our "long term" relationships.

    Most men (str8, bi, and gay) were not made to be monogamous! So why be forced into a relationship, of only one. When in my case I don't want marriage, unless, I am able to bring one of my men from Russia, to Oz, to be one, of my two husbands.

    Now not only would a lot more gay relationship, go the distance, so would a lot of str8 marriages, and the divorce rate would drop......

    So lets not just fight for the right to wed, lets also fight for the right for polygamy plural marriage, and all communities will benefit.

    Are you arguing for the right of you to have multiple husbands or for you and all your respective partners to be wed to one another? The other set up is called Polyamory and there are those who live that way and are very happy.

    I always wonder how the government could provide legal benefits of marriage to polyamorous families. Like if you have 3 husbands should your job be responsible to them financially? I feel some things could be worked out but not sure about others. I would like to help give full rights to polyamorous folks.

    Oh but just for the record some people like monogamy so I wouldn't say what most men like. Some like monogamy others like multiple partners and others want to remain single. I prefer to be in a monogamous relationship.

    Pattison....aaauuurgggg....Pattison, no. First of all, I hate generalizations. Who are you to say that most gay and str8 men are not made to be monogamous? I should think I know couples who ARE and (gasp) happy. I for one, know that I most definitely am capable of settling down with one husband one day (hopefully by then our union will be recognized world wide). See, when you think of monogamy, I have a sneeking suspicion that you think of it only in sexual terms, there is more to it than that. Men in monogamous relationships enjoy an intimacy, a bond, and a genuine love i'm afraid you could never understand if you think polygomy could lower American divorce rates; why, because there would be more sex? I think lack of sex is the last reason divorce rates are so high. Are you sure divorce rates are not high because a majority of married couples fail to communitcate properly, fail to family plan, and fail to control their finances? Adding another partner would only double these problems and I think you should rethink your position.

    Spending all my nights, all my money going out on the town
    Doing anything just to get you off of my mind
    But when the morning comes
    I'm right back where I started again
    Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

    Chucky come back, any kind of fool could see
    There was something in everything about you
    Chucky come back, you can blame it all on me
    I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

    All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
    Trying to keep up the smile that hides a tear
    But as the sun goes down, I get that empty feeling again
    How I wish to God that you were here Chucky

    Chucky come back, any kind of fool could see
    There was something in everything about you
    Chucky come back, you can blame it all on me
    I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

    Now that I put it all together
    Give me the chance to make you see
    Have you used up all the love in your heart?
    Nothing left for me, ain't there nothing left for me

    Chucky come back, any kind of fool could see (oh darlin Chucky')
    There was something in everything about you
    Chucky come back (listen Chucky), you can blame it all on me
    I was wrong, and I just can't live without you
    I was wrong, and I just can't live

    I'm not a monogamous kind of guy, I'm really terrible at relationships and so I rule out Long Term Relationships completely but; that's me. The option should be there for anyone who wants be married.

    The word is POLYAMORY, not polygamy.

    I've often done well to find one man I can tolerate.

    Never mind trying to find more than one.

    To each their own... but I've tried 3somes twice, and found those fun, but with too much baggage. I know I'm meant for monogamy or at least a few "long term" relationships. And though it pains me to say it, for a lot of guys polyamory would work, but not for all, and I think I fall in the minority, because I'm also in the category of guys whom don't cheat.

    Good luck pattison on getting you second husband.

    I'm not getting married again, but I think the option should always be there, the same goes for polygamy/polyandry or what ever you want to call it.

    I still stand by what i said. A women can only produce children for a very short time compared to a man. So a Man was not made to have only one partner.

    The divorce rate would drop, if men could take on more than on wife. I have two long term relationships; neither sexual. But I get something diffrent out of each of my men. Now I am not being a slut.

    But sorry. I don't think man was created to be monogrammist.

    Now I am talking about commitment, and not slut ting around.

    It is an interesting argument patt but one could also argue that nature designed it that way so that women give birth while they are young and around to care for their offspring as opposed to being old ladies who give birth and then nobody is around to care for the kid. who knows?

    I'm in favor of poly mammary.

    Woot! And i'm not talking Total Recall 3. I'm talking 32, 17, something impressive. I want them to be less booblike, and more grape like, but of course in boob sizes.
    For some reason multiple sizes makes me think of pustules, and that's not a pretty mental image my friends.

    So yes, big thumbs up for polymammaries!

    Sorry Pattywack, not really sure what you mean there.

    Are you saying that you don't think men were created to write just one book?

    yes but marriage has nothing to do with nature. it's about religion, When Marriage first come to be, if you lived to be 40, you where doing dam good.

    So man only had a short time to spread his seed. So polygamy seem more practical than to be committed to one.

    JonnyD One has been clear to you, One is not interested in you abuse, while you don't have the balls to have a pic, nor be verified. One has ever right to report to for stalking one, with the intent to abuse.

    Coward.

    and whats the difference with a gay man going next, and just dropping the last one for the next exciting one, and then next again. YUCK. So many men, so little time. But One is talking about long term commitment.

    Not only do I have one long term commitment but two....

    I'm sorry Pattison, I didn't mean to ruffle your feathers. Your unique writing style fascinates and intrigues me. I meant my comment to be just lighthearted ribbing, not to offend.

    P.S. Briarhawk, I laughed so hard at your comment that I choked on my biscotti. Good one!

    1)Polygamy means "many wives"
    2)Polyamory means "many loves"
    If you are looking for the term that means multiple husbands, the word is "polyandry"

    And for those of you who claim that monogamy is the norm, then please explain the fact that 60% of men will be unfaithful to their wives and 40% of women will be unfaithful to their husbands. How can the "norm" be the statistical minority?
