  • I think anyone should be able to marry. Wherever they want.
    BUT I think if two people get married, they should have to stay married for at least a year before they get divorced. ha.

  • All parties must be consenting legal adults. 

    I think that about covers it.

  • I believe anyone of legal age should be able to marry any (and however many) other consenting adult(s) he or she so desires, as long as all the parties are aware of the situation and agree to be part of it. As for where they can get married anywhere they please, as long as they're not forcing religious institutions to go against their convictions, because I do believe that a religious institution should be allowed to deny to be involved based on religion, but I wouldn't find that applicable to the secular side of things, meaning a court house shouldn't be able to deny it, etc, etc.

  • THat anyone, as long as they are adults can marry. As long as their choosen institution supports it. I would also include something in there stating that any religious institution has the right to refuse to marry a couple for whatever reason.

  • Legal age and human. And get married by someone who wants to marry them (why force someone to do something they disagree with since they aren't forcing you to do something or not do something?). That's about it.

  • any willing, agreeing, & conscious human of legal consenting age (18 if i get to make the rules) can marry any persons of any sex in any building they want so long as the owners of the property are willing to let the ceremony take place there (govt owned property is open to all).

    also, you have to have known each other for more than 1 month...ive never heard of those marriages working out. and not dating for more than a month, just known each other for more than a month.
