Church State Issues

If same-sex marriage is OK, why not polygamy?

Aug 6, 2014

Arizona Republic

If you want 3 wives, or 3 husbands that should be YOUR decision, not some elected official!!!

If same-sex marriage is OK, why not polygamy?

I found Republic editorial writer Linda Valdez's comment quite disingenuous at best when she says by eating at the Merry Wives Cafe in Hildale, Utah, you will be part of a perverse effort to normalize polygamy ("B&B set for polygamist compound site isn't funny," Opinions, Monday).

She is in favor of men marrying men and women marrying women, so what is so bad about a man marrying two women or a woman marrying two men? After all, it's just another of life's choices that free people should be able to make, right?
