Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) Ruled Unconstitutional

"BOSTON — The federal law banning gay marriage is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define the institution and therefore denies married gay couples some federal benefits, a federal judge ruled Thursday in Boston."

My first thought was "What right does a State actually have to define marriage in the first place, and why does it have any right to do so?"

Seeing that different religions have different marriage practices I don’t understand how a State can decide what marriage is and therefore define it, which would obviously violate the rights of some of the individuals of that State forcing them to follow a definition of marriage that is not supported by their religious doctrine. The Constitution specifically guarantees protection of the free practice of religion, and different religions have different definitions of marriage, therefore how is it possible for a State to definition marriage without forcing some of its residents to follow a religious doctrine different than what their religion allows.

As I thought about it, I wondered what the implications might be for "Biblical Marriage" because of the ruling. Most assuredly it is a blow to the ultra right wing "Christians" wanting marriage to be legally defined as one man and one woman only.

Your thoughts?

Hello, I’m considering this lifestyle

Hello, Ever since I became a housewife 7 years ago, I’ve really decided that polygamy/bigamy makes sense in so many ways.

Being a housewife all alone is lonely, tedious, frustrating, and overwhelming. With more women around to converse with and share all the duties, homemaking and childrearing might actually be enjoyable.

Everyone has different strengths in different areas, for example one woman might enjoy cooking more than others, another woman’s satisfaction might be found in cleaning, a third woman might have work well with children. Sharing and distributing duties would make housekeeping so much more enjoyable with other women to work alongside with, and have people to talk to.

My personal strengths are cleaning and organizing, and OCCASIONALLY working with children. But being alone with children 24/7 has not been my cup of tea. I need more adults, more helping hands, more interactional variety to raise my children. I believe in the old adage, ‘Many hands make light work."

I think it’s natural for men to want to be with many different women, but social customs have required that men repress that natural desire. I support the polygamist lifestyle. I think it’s what God intended.
