    Can you please provide me a definition for marriage which you would be happy with that would work?
    A legal commitment of love between two adults (or something like that - being a divorcee I'm a bit jaded). However, I am prepared to change my definition of marriage at some point in the future if I think it is no longer valid. If I am provided with enough evidence to support a change, then I will support that change. A bit like how scientific discovery works...

    Sure, if they are granted a section 12. Or they can just wait til they are 18. I hope you aren't going to try to say legalizing gay marriage will lead to children being allowed to marry or something equally far fetched?

    You would not be happy for polygamous marriage now?

    I don't think right now but a large part of that is because there hasn't been sufficient robust discussion about it nor does there seem to be a pressing need. I'm open to the idea but I want to hear the arguments from different perspectives first.

    Not sure what a section 12 is. What would they need to do to be granted it? And who would decide this?

    I haven't bothered to read every reply here but in regards to keeping marriage tradition, correct me if I'm wrong and apologies if someone else has already asked but isn't the 'tradition' of marriage an oath between two people to God declaring their love and commit to one another yet now people can be married in non religious ceremonies so obviously the 'tradition' of marriage has changed with society and freedom amongst the people to decide their own religious beliefs and these ceremonies are still as legally binding as those made in a church in front of god.

    Perhaps those that are against need to also change with the times and get out of the dark ages.

    I couldn't care less to tell you the truth, end of the day it makes no difference in my life.

    I'm sure polygamists would say there there is a pressing need. Did you read the articles I linked to? Why should we have to argue it? If they want to get married, who are you to say no? (Those last 2 questions are not my arguments, but they are the same as others have used).
