• POLYGAMY IS COMING: Montana Man Wants to Marry Second Wife, ‘It’s About Marriage Equality’

    Many have argued that if the Supreme Court rules and decides that two women can marry and that two men can also marry, then that court is also going to have to one day address Americans who want to have two or more spouses.

    Well, that day is already here.

    Love is love and is equal, according to the highest court in the land. But love is still not equal in the eyes of Montana’s state government.

    From CBS News:

    A Montana man said Wednesday that he was inspired by last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage to apply for a marriage license so that he can legally wed his second wife.

    Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage. Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy – holding multiple marriage licenses – but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.

    “It’s about marriage equality,” Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. “You can’t have this without polygamy.”

    County clerk officials initially denied Collier’s application, then said they would consult with the county attorney before giving him a final answer, Collier said.

    And there you have it.

    I haven’t read the Supreme Court’s recent marriage equality ruling. So I can’t tell you if the high court addressed this issue or not. But I wouldn’t be surprised if this time next year we weren’t hearing news reports about Mr. Collier, or some other Big Love family, having his Polygamy case being heard by America’s top court.

    It’s a brave new world out there, kids.
