If same sex marriage is legalized then surely the marriage of more than 2 people should be.

What does "gay marriage" have that a Civil Partnership doesn't?

There's no reason to redefine "marriage" which is a union for procreation. Civil Partnership already has all of the legal aspects covered - probably moreso than marriage anyway.

I vote for gay marriage and to do away with civil partnerships.

Are you implying a Civil Union is not legal?

Of course not.

Not unless you're heterosexual.
.... where's the equality in that I wonder?

Yes, we certainly wouldn't want infertile couples getting married. Whatever next, marriage for poor people or black people?

Yeh, that could work .....If Cameron thought it would win him more votes, perhaps he could announce if we all become Mormons then we would pay no UK tax whatsoever.

Would we get tax incentives for having 7 wives? Count me in :)

Generally you wouldn't know anyone was infertile until after they were 'married' - legal or otherwise.
