    So when do you project that five-people marriages will become an accepted social norm once gay marriage is accepted?
    Why not?

    Thanks for the thorough argument.

    I think one could make an argument based on pattern assessment -- that certain patterns are more flexible in the public mind than others (for example, there might be more flex within the composition of the members of a two-person relationship, than there would be for flexing the quantity of people involved in the relationship), and the reasoning for support for each would help determine how palatable/likely it will be to see that shift occur. As a side example, for some reason, a relationship between two adults is considered a different category than a relationship between a person and a dog, they're not easily transferable from one to the other.

    I was hoping you'd address those issues in your argument. Otherwise there's not much meat to discuss; it just comes off as casual speculation.

    (Kind of like the, "just because something is possible doesn't make it probable" argument. Not all possibilities are automatically created equal.)

    If a turtle and a dog come up and tell me they want to be married, I'd be happy to do the honor myself

    That dog is not even looking at the turtle, some twisted genetics freak owner made the dog lie there in an attempt to reach unnatural genetically commingling heights. Though I have heard gorillas will try to force themselves onto human women. Hence the infamous take back the night chant - "Get your hands off me, you damn, dirty ape!"

    You know what's sad? Out of all of the arguments against gay marriage (e.g., definitional/natural law, religious, from tradition, etc.,), the slippery slope to polygyny/polyandry/bestiality/incest/pedophilia is still the strongest one (despite its outright illogic and its collapse under scrutiny.)

    Of course, as you note here at the end, that's probably not saying much. (It's like saying that Mitt Romney's a raging social liberal compared to a Republican nomination pool including Michele Bachman and Rick Santorum.)
