    that Utah allows first-cousin marriages provided the parties prove that at least one party is sterile? So not only is procreation NOT required for marriage, NOT procreating is something Utah actually requires in certain marriages.

    From the state's civil code:

    (2) First cousins may marry under the following circumstances:
         (a) both parties are 65 years of age or older; or
         (b) if both parties are 55 years of age or older, upon a finding by the district court, located in the district in which either party resides, that either party is unable to reproduce.

      Seriously; who cares or is keeping track of if first cousins get married. Not having kids probably a good idea. But actually throughout history first cousins have married.

      That 65, 55 year old really brings about the point of how many same sex couples, denied marriage are now, also at that age just being able to legally marry. Totally unfair law not allowing marriage equality to everyone.

      partly sarcasm; Although, I wouldn't be surprised if; as Hunter says, it isn't "The complex beginnings of a future real estate scam?"

      How many real estate scams have they pulled on the US population in the past 30 years.

      I remember that big stock market crash in the late eighties, early nineties again. You don't hear much about those.  

      All Truth. Just like there's no media coverage against spectra gas. Except grassroots groups like Occupy.

      New Shut Down-spectra's natural gas transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City!
