An all-time classic article why marriage is a human rights issue

An all-time classic article why marriage is a human rights issue is by Jonathan Turley, the lawyer of Kody Brown and his family in their lawsuit against the ban on polygamy in Utah. I think it to be one of the most important articles with the legal arguments for the legalization of polygamy – and thus also polyamory.

The main argument of the article One Big, Happy Polygamous Family published in the New York Times in July 2011, goes:

There is no spectrum of private consensual relations – there is just a right of privacy that protects all people so long as they do not harm others.1Cited according to my last check of the article on March 7th, 2018.  

In this one, simple sentence, which you also find in my Theses on love and family free from excessive government regulation, by Viktor Leberecht and there especially in thesis 1, the basic principle is explained why it is wrong for states to allow their citizens only a narrowly defined spectrum of possibilities of family coexistence.

The whole article One Big, Happy Polygamous Family is highly worth reading because it is a kind of short seminar in the application of the basic principles of human rights.
