If people vote to re-define marriage to allow a man to marry another man, and a woman to marry another woman, what would prevent another group from advocating polygamy?

If people should be able to marry whomever they love, would that not also include marrying two people whom they love? Those involved in polygamy probably would say they are also committed to their marriage.

All it would take is a good marketing strategy, a slogan, and, of course, money. Sound farfetched? Same-sex marriage was also farfetched just a short time ago.

I understand homosexuals’ desire for societal approval to marry each other but the reality is that they can have the rights they talk about in a civil union.

My husband of almost 42 years and I will be voting to maintain marriage as it is.
