I realize with gay marriage on the rise, things are changing drastically in our country. Does this mean that we are also going to have to rethink other kinds of marriage?

Thank you for your opinion! I wonder if you'd feel the same way if it happened within your family. What if it was your daughter?
My point is that personal feelings, including my own, are a poor substitute for the rule of law.Eeven if I had personal feelings a particular way, I can choose not to have them supersede equality under the law for others.
Ha ha! I love your perspective! I can't believe that it was only 46 years ago that racial mixed marriages were not allowed. I didn't even know that was a thing. You're right about it being a non-issue 50 years later.
I also can't believe there was a time women could not vote! This link is about interracial marriage. Equality should be a non-issue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interracial_marriage
Why exactly is it that you feel that way? You do realize that in many if those situations young girls are "forced" into polygamist marriages. They simply don't realize that they have another choice.
Where are you getting your info from? I mean no disrespect but really what most people know about polygamy is simply what the media has told them. Most situations aren't camps of young girls marrying an old guy.
No, I realize that it is not but I do know that it happens quite frequently.
So do alot of things. That doesn't mean we should make everything illigal just because some do wrong.
I agree. Isn't it currently illegal?
Yes it is. For some reason the USA government likes to control people's personal lives. Really makes no sense to me as it is none of my business what people want to do in their homes.
I apologize for the lack of tact in saying "our country." :) I appreciate your comments. If I'm not mistaken, I thought it was illegal in the US. Is that not the case anymore?
I don't believe that I suggested that the US now approves of polygamy, as far as I know it is still illigal there. I was referring to the attitude of the indigenous population of Borneo.
Ah. I understand. Thanks.
