Group Marriage

The universal definition of marriage that we have proposed is an inclusive one that accommodates diversity. Part of that inclusion is what some would call polygamy. However, while some Muslim men may marry four wives, they do so in a way in a series, and in a way in which the wives are not married to each other.

We value equality, so legally speaking, that wouldn’t be how it would work. Whenever a new person is added, all must consent and a new marriage is formed. This is to protect everyone. So a Muslim man with four wives would be a quintet marriage. The previous marriage, from a legal standpoint, dissolves and becomes the new, larger one. If one person leaves, the marriage is reformed into a smaller one.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
