concluded that polyamorous relationships are entitled to the same sort of legal protection given to two-person relationships.

Everyone here want to get married in a blob so we can each get get (n-1) copies of spousal benefits each from the government? Some people might call this "fraud" but we can't be compelled to testify against one another... spousal privilege and all that. Oh and everyone outside the US is can apply for citizenship. Congratulations.

We'd be fucked if anyone wanted a divorce though. Especially since there's at least one woman who posts here regularly. I don't have anything against her but I don't think we want to give her all of our shit.

Burgerpunk dystopia update: criminal organizations now engage in mass poly-marriage as a legal failsafe. Attempts to divorce from the organization are met with assassination. "Married to the mob" is now literal.

It's not called The Family for nothing.

Howdy fellow husband!

I assume the KIA2 users would form a 99% male “marriage” (perhaps one person here can find a woman to join)

Thank you for the citizenship!

I love the inevitable future conflict between islam and women’s rights.

I don't, because that means Islam has grown to the point that it's a threat to what they call "women's rights" now. Which means we're in a bad place, and the ethnic violence is just going to ratchet up, because Muslims can't live in peace with anybody.

So the final stages of being a failed state manifest.

Liberals just want to destroy every single aspect of traditional cultural values.

Again, I posit the ideal solution: pick 1 place and send all these freaks there, and let them turn it into their "paradise" as a cautionary tale to everyone else.

This is another thing I would never understand. All the polyamorous relationships I see in clips usually involve several guys and one woman or a couple of women and several guys. I can't understand a guy that is ok with other guys having sex with the women you love, this applies to open relationships as well. I understand the idea of sleeping around without an emotional implication but they claim love here. How is this a thing?

On a related note, women tend to be extremely jealous so how do mormons manage several wives without having them poison each other?

It's simple: men have been conditioned to be okay with whatever a woman wants and are too starved for affection to say no.

I strongly believe that poly people don't understand what love is. They experience a shallow form of it. Romantic love involves finite psychological/emotional resources. So when they say they love all of their partners, it's kind of like children playing house, except wretched instead of cute.

Source: I had a close call with falling for that bullshit myself, before figuring it out. Poly is highly attractive to people who don't want to commit to a single partner. They don't find satisfaction with a single partner because they don't know the trials and rewards of a serious monogamous romance. They think that a shallow connection to another human being is sufficient because they aren't even really concerned with a lifelong partnership; if one person dies or leaves, it's like a pet dog dying or running away, kind of sad for a few months but then you get a new dog.

tl;dr: romantic love is defined by willing exclusivity and cannot exist without monogamy - other forms of love exist, but they are not romantic love.

Romantic love is bullshit from movies. It doesn't exist. Your lizard brain is drugging you into feeling it so you make a baby.

Poly is women trying to exploit broken men to double their simp bucks.

immediately followed by ...

Your lizard brain is drugging you into feeling it so you make a baby.

So it doesn't exist, but even though it doesn't exist it's only a thing because your brain forces you to feel it.

What a stupid fucking statement. Everything we "feel" is just our brains drugging us into it. I'm only hungry because my brain tells me. I'm only tired because my brain tells me. I'm only thirsty because my brain tells me. I'm only angry or happy or sad because my brain tells me. Therefore none of those things exist because it's just my brain sending electrochemical signals to my body.

(Yes, I'm aware that there that other organs are capable of signaling stuff through other electrochemical processes. It doesn't change the argument.)

How do you explain poly among a group of homosexual males?

I could potentially accept an argument that romantic love is not worth pursuing, but not an argument that it doesn't exist. I can even accept your premise that it's just a bunch of brain chemical drug effects caused by evolutionary psychology, but that doesn't make it stop resulting in a distinct cognitive state (a feeling, if you will). Unless you're suggesting that such states should all be stripped of their labels and we disregard all feelings as "lizard brain" trickery.

Broken men will do a lot for women's attention.

Why not just scrap the benefits for marriage? It would make way more sense than trying to include all the different relationships women have spawned.
