But polyamorists seem to prefer being closeted and get walked on like stairs. I fucking hate this closet. It's rubbish.
"But Eliza, with legal recognition comes complications"
We can sort that shit out, trust me.
We have bodies of law to build on already. Consider corporate and contract law. Marriage can be treated just like a merger. Divorce can be treated like a spin-out or liquidation.
It's... really not that hard.
Like for real
If you get married, you should know what the hell that means. It means joint ownership of property. When you divorce, the law will divide your property equitably (in most jurisdictions nowadays).
That may mean complications during divorce. As if those don't already exist in polyamorous marriages that exist outside the legal system...
@Aerdan Yeah but if they haven't I say do an equitable split as if all the parties were divorcing at once (excluding personal property)
If they wind up with not a whole lot, oh well
@Elizafox Children raised in these instances deserve these rights as well
This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
