AN ARGUMENT AGAINST POLYAMOROUS MARRIAGE
P1. Polyamorous marriage, in principle, has a potentially unlimited number of spouses
P2. It is absurd for marriage to have, in principle, a potentially unlimited number of spouses
C. Therefore polyamorous marriage is absurd
Any limit placed on the number of spouses in a polyamorous marriage would be completely arbitrary. If three people have the right to marry then why not four?
If marriage is between any number of people, then what is marriage? Any understanding of marriage which includes potentially an unlimited number of spouses has nothing to do with encouraging the two parents coming together to raise the child.
