Montana Threesome Sues for Plural Marriage

To demand a right to a plural marriage, they naturally appeal to the Supreme Court decision making same-sex “marriage” a reality and a civil right.

Only five days after the Supreme Court decision that pretended that homosexual couples can be “married” and declared all states must recognize such “marriages” a threesome applied for a marriage license. In this case, it was a married couple and a single woman claiming they should be able to form a plural marriage with one husband and two wives—aka: a polygamous marriage.

The marriage license was denied. So now the three are suing the state. KDSK reports, “‘Sister Wives’ guests ask judge to strike down bigamy laws.”

A Montana man is asking a federal judge to strike down the state’s bigamy laws so he can marry a second wife.

Nathan Collier, his legal wife Victoria and his common-law wife Christine filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in Billings, Mont. They cite the U.S. Supreme Court’s June ruling allowing gay marriage and reference biblical figures with multiple wives in their argument that the state is unconstitutionally preventing them from legitimizing their polygamous relationship.

Nathan Collier, 46, said he’s fighting for marriage equality for polygamy.

“I’m fighting for my family’s right to exist as a family,” he said. “I can’t imagine a greater cause to fight for.”

Other than the Left-Libertarians over at Reason Magazine, I don’t see a lot of support for polygamy. Sadly, I think if the wives pretended to be sexually involved with each other, the threesome would get support from Liberals.

Already, Politico.com has published a major defense of Polyamory as an implication of the Supreme Court decision recognizing same-sex “marriage.” It is anyone’s guess what will happen if this case is appealed. They might refuse to recognize the marriage just to try to back up their claims that there was no slippery slope from recognizing homosexual “marriage” to recognizing plural marriages. Or they might decide to take the principles of the Supreme Court seriously and go ahead and change another marriage rule in modern America.

After that, I suspect we will find other people claiming self-righteously, “I’m fighting for my family’s right to exist as a family.
