The right to bear arms does not cover bombs or machine guns or flame throwers or artillery. Private citizens may not own fighter jets or missiles.

The right of free speech does not protect Perjury, Obstruction of justice, extortion, obscenity or liable or slander.

These limits set forth in statutes or case law.

I never understood the more than one wife thing.....I mean if you are manly enough and can support them and the multiple children on your own dime then go for it. ;)

Polygamy was common in the ancient world, but not anymore. I suspect its a morals question.

So the elite get thousands of wives in their harem raising armies of children, so you don't get any & must pleasure yourself.

By that measure, a woman should be able to have multiple husbands.....

Yeah, go for it. Just as long as she gets at least one that can cook-n-clean so the rest can go off hunting and what not. ;)

Overpopulation made polygamy obsolete.

If people could get the word "Rights" out of their heads and concentrate on "Responsibilities", the world would be a much better place.

So the government is pushing it's religious values on the citizenry?

As far as government is concerned marriage is nothing but a property contract therefore if more than 2 people want to enter into that contract it is none of the government's business.

Just like the right to an abortion - it is neither unlimited or absolute, as set forth by Roe v Wade and the cases that followed.

The basis for marriage laws used to be the welfare of children. Now it is for the promotion of homosexuality.

It's a property contract that's all it ever was.

Do you consider children to be property? Without them, adults can enter into any contract they want. Why bother calling some a "marriage contract?"

you don;t have to be married to be held legally responsible for your children.

Most people marry before they have kids anyway so once again the only real issue is property
More and more married people aren't having children as well.

But it is a right, with limitations and responsibilities like any other right.

Roe v Wade was a bad ruling. The Constitution does not even mention abortion. A Texas law which ignored it was upheld by the Supreme ct and a direct challenge to it is now before the court.
