Try explaining the next logical step to Gay Marriage, polygamy, to the low information young. They will say “well I guess they should be allowed to marry too.” It’s scary.
I was thinking government should just stay out of defining marriage. Let it be a sacrament.
However, here’s one problem: when these three people divorce, the “family” law courts will utterly destroy this poor child’s life.
I ask them where they draw the line, What is unacceptable to you? I tell them that I really love the neighbor across the street and my wife and I want to make it a three way union. I then tell that the guy down the road really loves his dog and the dog obviously loves him, why shouldn't they be allowed to marry?
How about those outmoded ages of consent laws? Shouldn't a couple be able to decide when it is right for them? Even if he is 40 and she is only 10-12?
At some point they begin to squirm and get very uncomfortable. I then point out they do have a line they won't cross, it is just farther down the road to perdition. They rarely change their mind, but they know they are full of crap and I am correct.
