    You know, I ask myself, where or who defined what marriage entailed, who was involved and who /what dictates the dynamics of marriage. We have gotten so far away from "God" as a country that we cannot possibly use that as an argument for the Man & Woman marriage. The verbage used is one man and one woman; however, is polygamy is allowed is that not one man and however many women he should choose and how many would put themselves through that kind of lifestyle. It is all about choices. I do not believe that a governing body of individual, many who have made choices not socially accepted, should dictate who I as an individual should love and ultimately marry.
