Group seeking support for legal recognition of polyamorous ‘marriage’ in New Zealand

By Michelle Kaufman, LifeSite News

Just one week after the passage of gay ‘marriage’ legislation in New Zealand, it has been revealed that a group has been formed whose goal is to have group marriages recognised in law.

The group, which has a Facebook page entitled “Support legalised Polyamory in NZ”, says “We are supporters of the legal recognition of Polyamorous marriage in NZ. By ‘Polyamorous marriage’ we mean – responsible, adult, committed non-monogamy (Plural marriage of any gender) marriage or union.”
“We believe that ALL committed loving relationships between adults regardless of number should be respected and given legal acknowledgement” they go on to say.
The group was highlighted recently in the popular New Zealand news site Stuff.
Pro-family advocates have often argued that legalizaing gay ‘marriage’ will lead inevitably to the acceptance and recognition in law of polygamous, polyamorous and even incestuous relationships. Such arguments are often dismissed by gay activists. However, an increasingly visible movement has been forming to push for the legalization of polygamy.
