dezlboy, it’s not a slippery slope argument. but don’t talk about it with him when he refuses to take his own stand. He’s playing the hypocrisy game, and it’s perfectly fair game to turn that around against him.

Two mommies sounds better to me! Bring on the mommies… and don’t forget the cold PBR!
Why is it okay to throw someone in prison for marrying the people he loves? Do gays get thrown in prison in virginia for trying to marry?
I should know better, but I’ll take the bait. I have no problem with polygamy as long as it’s among fully consenting adults. I think the only constraints would have to be practical in nature, e.g. I don’t know how the law would recognize or manage a 1,000 person marriage. So where is the limit? I dunno. But I do know I don’t care if more than 2 people wanna shack up together. Bygones.
Bigamy, however, typically involves an element of deception and fraud as 2 of the 3 parties don’t know about each other (and hence is NOT among fully consenting adults). While 1-4 yrs. in prison and $100K in fines sounds pretty harsh, I’d think punishment would be proportional to the financial and emotional damage he may have caused. Hopefully he wasn’t taking these ladies for their money and there aren’t any kids involved.

Who said it was or wasn’t okay?

Don’t know. Report back when you try it.
@NS: Why are you refusing to read my thread? The one you asked me to start and in which you said you would answer your own question.
Griffon, by that logic, adultery should be illegal, and cheating spouses in a married shouldn’t be able to win alimony or whatever from a spouse they left.
Gays do not get arrested for trying to get married. Poly gamists do. They have it worse.
You’re right NS. Polygamists have it worse than gays.

Ever been to Utah?
No. i’ve never been to Utah, but there are 49 other states and the District of Columbia, where if you are trying to say polygamists don’t get arrested in Utah, the other states do arrest them. it’s illegal for htem to be married. THey get charged with a crime and thrown into jail. Do gays get jailed for trying to get married?
@NS asked, ” Do gays get jailed for trying to get married?”
As i stated before, try it and let us know what happens.
Steve the “lawyer” should know the difference between bigamy and polygamy.
As R. Griffon noted, polygamy is just multiple marriage, while bigamy is fraud – a man marrying more than one woman though the wives don’t know about each other. That’s why it’s a criminal offense, as opposed to just an invalid marriage.
Will there be bigamy in gay marriage too? Why should the law step in to private relationships? If you can prosecute as a crime bigamy then you can prosecute as a crime adultery or infidelity amongst non married people, can you not? Should all fraud between spouses be prosecutable as a crime? A spouse doesn’t tell about their massive debt? Their bad credit?
