    I'm just pleased one way or another it makes no difference to my life, as the last thing I have ever wanted is a gay wedding. So regardless one way or another my life will go on. But then we also need to look at plural marriage too.

    Recent discoveries about your polygamous relationship/s has made it very clear why it makes no difference to you as you would be unable to marry both.

    Plural marriages?

    This is the reason Gay marriage isn't "fully" legal in the United States. One of the arguements against it is that gay marriage will lead to polygamists wanting equal rights... icon_rolleyes.gif

    TBA, I don't understand why you can't see it from any other point of view than your own relationship. What works for you does not necessarily work for someone else. You will not be forced to get married and gay people getting married is not going to harm you.

    If you can only see things on a personal level, what it would do is make it so that NO ONE has a right to tell you that you are not allowed to have the same rights as everyone else.

    You know I would not be surprised if that was the next step in advancement. So if we are going to fight for marriage equality, why not plural marriage too? It should be on the agenda; after all man is not wired to be monogamous for 50 years.
