I'm OK with hetero and homosexual marriage. What I'm looking for and what I really want is my right to have more than one wife. I have the resources to have 3 or 4 wives but the state I live in will only recognize one. My civil rights are being violated and the 3 wives I could potentially have are also having their rights infringed. So for right now we all just hang out together, which is kind of nice.

Nothing is stopping you from living with, and bedding with, as many women as you want. However, only one can be your legal spouse for purposes of Social Security benefits, veterans benefits, taxes, inheritance, etc. And your one legal spouse will have a distinct advantage over any person in a same-sex relationship. Even if they're legally married in one of the nine states that allow same-sex marriages, they can't qualify for any of those federal benefits.

Why do you think the fundamentalist Mormons who are polygamous are not prosecuted? Because only one spouse is legally married to the guy, and adultery is not illegal. Unless there's welfare fraud or an underage wife, there's nothing to prosecute.

So, go for it.

Those who remember the old version of the SAT might recall the analogy section: “This is to that as that is to this.”

The SAT no longer requires students to demonstrate aptitude in reasoning through this vital cognitive exercise—unfortunate because so many Americans find it difficult to recognize false analogies. And no group has exploited this deficiency more than politicians.

Adam Cohen observed in a 2005 New York Times piece: “Intentionally misleading comparisons are becoming the dominant mode of public discourse....
