      paradoxically, this is one more example of the separation between church and state :-D

      they don't get marriage licenses in these arrangements.  they are not legally married.  They simply go through their religious ceremony and call themselves married that way.

      you can have as many ceremonies as you want and call yourself married in the eyes of God but without the paper from the state you are not married in the eyes of the law.

      on the other hand, you can get married by the state and never have any religious ceremony.  you are still married.

      so it's not against the law if they don;t have marriage licenses, and they don't.  and even if they did, the marriages would not be valid.  so at most those guys are married to one woman and the rest are just consenting to a polyamorous relationship

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
