  • Good for them. They're all adults and if the chose to share a husband they should be allowed to do so. I don't know why everyone cares so much about what others are doing in their own homes.

  • Well, first, does Utah even allow gay marriage? I would think that should pass before this but I'm not against it either.

  • Actually it has not been ignored that is the problem they have been going after polygamists and putting them in jail (in Utah). If they did not prosecute and jail the polygamists that where all legal adults and not abusing the system they would get a lot more help and find it easier to jail the sects that are marring young girls and abusing welfare.

  • I would fully support the right of multiple spouses, or "plural families" as they're calling it. I'd wish them luck!
