    Or maybe it will be the NAMBLA bunch who argue that 15 year old boys are able to have relationships with adult males. That's what is next IMO.

    Sounds reasonable. I can't for the life of me figure out why a man would want 2 or more wives.

    My husband says the laws against multiple wives seem as though they are for the protection of women, but they are really intended to protect men. :D

    Variety ;)

    But anyhow... polygamy is a different issue all together.

    It has been acceptable at some point in time in most societies, even considered necessary. In our culture today, we generally maintain that women have the same rights as a man, in most cases, and are able to provide for themselves. This generally isnt the case in societies where polygamy is common place (ala, Islamic countries). What is a woman to do in places like those, if she becomes a widow, etc etc?

    I think there is a very strong argument against polygamy in today's society from the position of women's rights. It seems most polygamists in the west generally ensnare the ladies when they are underage and keep them uneducated and brainwashed... basically slaves on a baby farm.

    Gay marriage does not make the argument against polygamy any weaker.

    So whatís up people - the total disruption of our Christian based society? When will it actually begin and what should I - an uneducated heathen - look for: What will be the signs of our doom?

    That part's irrelevant. My response to the otehr poster was relevant to his post. Try to keep up.

    So gay couples arenít able, some how, to adopt - have a surrogate - or artificially inseminate? Is there a law Iím not up to speed on?

    It's quite possible that you didn't notice anything because it would be almost impossible for one single event to make California more fucked up and hell bound than it usually is. :D ;)
