"No word on the "rights" of other sexual minorities?
No answer to my question Bill? "

To be VERY clear... I would tend to allow ANY personal arrangement of not compelled or pressured, dedicated, honest, human beings.

I would allow any pair of humans to apply for a marriage license thru normal channels. Then, any other combination (3 or more) would have to submit a detailed contract stating financial obligations, plans for raising children...etc., etc. These would have to be approved by lawyers, counselors and possibly other officials. **This is only a theory** Many of such plans would likely NOT be approved due to doubts about sincerity, schooling, finances...etc.... but they would not be prevented from applying.

For an example of what 'might' be approved, read "Proposition 31", by Robert Rimmer. (The sequel to "The Harrad Experiment")

Of course, I do NOT expect such laws to be forthcoming.... though you can bet that some such situations already exist 'under the official radar'.

So... "other sexual minorities" would have all the common rights as long as they are consenting, sane and of legal age.
