And what would the term for a permanent heterosexual marriage be?

Pretty sure no marriage is permanent. Why, some traditional marriage vows expressly contemplate when it will terminate, e.g. death, but not in the event of illness, poverty, or other "bad times".

i got married for eternity.

LDS, right?

I thought marriage licensing was started by The Church, to "legitimize" the relationship AND recognize "property rights".  (back when women/children were viewed as "property")  Then, since The Church was a power above kingdoms, those licenses were acknowledged by secular governments.
No, the actual license was started as a prohibition to certain pairings. States really shouldn't be in that area.

Yeah, you'll be welcome here.

There are gay, bi, asexual, pansexual people and cadres up here. There are polyamorous families and up here. There are kinksters. There's even some push to promote pro-liberty ideas within these existing communities since they're already used to being persecuted and getting active about it.

Pot smokers, hallucinogen users, alcohol users, coffee drinkers and other manner of drug users all reside in NH as part of the FSP.

If anybody has an issue with you, it likely won't be because of your sexuality or lifestyle. Likely, it would be the way you display it - i.e. public displays of affection, smoking bowls in public, et cetera. :P

Once you legalize gay marriage...

 ;D

""That would be like saying, well there's there are a lot of people who like to use drugs so let's go ahead and accommodate those who want to use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, should we accommodate them?""

uh.  yes, yes (as long as its voluntary), and yes    ;D

regarding polygamy ... Hey, if you can handle more than one wife - more power to ya! 
One wife with a "mood change" is bad enough.

I full-on support anyone who wants to do it and has consenting wives, but I'm watching Big Love and it's making it seem less appealing each episode.  Never was my thing.  I don't have the attention span for more than one other person at a time.

I don't hang out with anyone who does half of the stuff you posted, but I'm sure you could find a circle in NH somewhere.

I have always found the argument that same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy (and should therefore not be permitted) to be fascinating.

In fact, I am tempted to agree with the Social Conservatives that any marital structure that is the first step on a slippery slope towards polygamy should be prohibited.

And we know that the only large-scale, objective, actual experience in this country with polygamy, was among Mormons in a one-man, multiple-women heterosexual arrangement.

Therefore, since heterosexual marriage has (as history has proven) lead to polygamous hetersexual marriage, it would seem to me that heterosexual marriage should be the structure that is prohibited.......right? ? ?    :o ;D

God seems to change his mind about how many partners one can have. Maybe it has more to do with who's writing the history books on God's behalf?

In my opinion, the real liberty position on gay marriage is get the government out of ALL marriage.

I agree wholeheartedly. I cannot fathom why it is a good idea for the gov to be involved in any marriage, in any way. What possible good can it serve?

great thread.

Get government out of marriage! Call your relationship and anyone else's relationship whatever you want to! :)

Personally, I'm more interested in ending government marriage for heterosexuals than adding it for homosexuals, but I can understand the motivation of those working for the latter.
