Here Come the Brides

This Weekly Standard article shows how polyamory is a real possibility. While the current Supreme Court probably will not mandate polyamory, a future court, acting consistently with precedent, could do so. In fact, the view of law students are given in many law schools will eventually require polyamory if people act consistently with their beliefs - mainly a belief in the separation of law and morality, or in the nonexistence of objective morality.

Trinity Law school is committed to the idea that law and objective morality are meant to work together. Just because someone feels like doing something does not mean it is healthy or should be legal. While law cannot ban all vice or require all virtue we should think long and hard before we unleash the social consequences of polyamory.
