Oh good you wrote what I wanted to but was just too lazy to. But I suppose we have to remember that marrying for love seems to be on the decline. Marriage is the union between two people. It's a special bond you share, it's a commitment. I feel a person greatly tarnishes that 'commitment' when you tell the girl you love "gosh I love you with all my heart" and then turn around and say "gosh I love you with all my heart" to the girl behind you. I dunno, that's how I feel about it. Gender, race, and (to some degree) age really shouldn't hinder two people in love from getting married. However, polygamy is a whole other ballgame. People need to remember this isn't just about sex...you're committing yourself to two or more partners to love, cherish and support. Jealousy is going to start playing into this at some point. I see nothing but bad things happening to a MAJORITY of polygamist marriages. Obviously not all will fail, but i'm quite certain a majority would. If people want to be together with multiple partners, that's cool, but it's just not practical to legalize it officially for marriage.
