I see nothing wrong with 3, 4, 5 or more people getting married to each other, if there is true love, commitment and consent among the partners.
How about 100 people? Do you think there should be a legal limit for the number of people? What will be the basis for this limit? Do they have
to prove they are all intimate with each other or that they intend to have sex with each other? Is having sex necessary? Do you have to prove that you
want and can have sex? If sex is not relevant, then can, say, 10 friends all marry each other? And your assumption about two being the 'default'
number in a relationship is not substantiated. Have you heard about 'love triangles', for example? You see, my point is not that somebody has to be
denied the right to live with a partner, but the fact that marriage is K-Q (in terms of
). You'll have to change a lot of rules in this world if you want to re-define
marriage, even card games. Do you know that in ancient world there were sometimes homosexual relationships among people, but nobody even thought about
re-defining marriage, and most men ultimately married women? Do you know that there was no word for a 'homosexual person' in medieval Japan, but there
was a word for a 'man who doesn't like women'? Why not invent another word for a non-standard relationship, why would anybody want to re-define
