    ...and I think most liberals even agree on it:

    Marriage, as a legal contract, should be defined as between two consenting adults.

    Realistically, as abhorrent as it is to me personally in most current constructs because it is usually rooted in patriarchy, that definition would include polygamous marriages as the contract remains between two adults. It is just a matter of whether we will legally allow someone to enter two or more such contracts at a time. However, as another poster noted, there are not currently millions of people desiring to enter into polygamous marriages. Additionally, many communities currently practicing it are also including minors.
