Three’s Company

Come and knock on our door… (Come and knock on our door)
We’ve been waiting for you…. (We’ve been waiting for you)
Where the kisses are hers and hers and his,
Three’s company too.

A married couple with three children are filing for divorce so their shared girlfriend won’t feel left out.

Cristina and Benno Kaiser have been married 12 years and are in an open relationship with 21-year-old Sierra Kuntz. By divorcing and one of them then marrying Kuntz, they plan to give her legal rights to the children.

Why do they need to get divorced first? Not sure why polygamy isn’t a right protected by the Constitution. We were told Love is love. We were told If you love someone, then it is your right to marry that person. Government shouldn’t be able to tell you who you can and cannot love. Polygamy is a basic civil right. It would be a victory for their children, families would be recognized as equal to any other. It would be a victory for the allies and friends and supporters who spent years, even decades, working and praying for change to come.

If love is love, then a ruling making polygamy Constitutional would be a victory for America. The decision would affirm what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts: when all Americans are treated as equal we are all more free. All Americans are entitled to the equal protection of the law. All people should be treated equally, regardless of who they are or who they love. Why do Americans still face legal discrimination simply for who, or how many, they love?

    Rhetorical question: Why does it seem that in polygamy relationships, you never see two or more dudes?

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Short answer: Sperm is cheap, eggs are expensive.

    • Gregg says:

      Because by definition polyGAMY is a man having 2 or more wives.

      PolyANDRY is the proper term for a marriage where the woman has 2 or more husbands.

      PolyGYNY is the generic term which is applicable any time that multiple spouses of any gender are involved.

      Yes those are actual terms used by historians and cultural anthropologists.

    Polygamy just hasn’t had it’s day in court since the American cultural revolution’s great leap forward. Give it time.

    we have a lot of it here in Michigan . some of our more “peaceful” residents have up to 4 wives. The state looks the other way. On the public assistance documents to collect benefits they are listed as
    ” Any Other Relative ” . although they often are only “married” in the eyes of their community. nothing on paper with the state. That maximizes said benefits.

    Personally I can think of no sane reason any man would want to put up with the head aches of more than one woman in his life.

    But yea it’s coming down the pike. SCOTUS will decide it.

    Wait till a company provided insurance plan faces how many “other family” members it must cover.
    So long employer provided or shared payment health insurance plans. Or pricing goes through the roof for each additional wife.
