[quote]At what age do fundamental rights kick in? 10? 15? 18? If a grade school age child has the right to privacy, then do they not have all other fundamental rights as well? Now that marriage is a fundamental right would adult-child marriages now be legal under the scope of this ruling?[/quote] ...

re: Need the court decision actually explained to me - UpToPar
Just to stick with the issues that have been raised before, what about using polygamy to avoid paying inheritance taxes? 85 year old millionaire is about to die and marries his nurse and his family friend so they don't have to pay inheritance tax. I understand that a lot of these things can already ...

re: Need the court decision actually explained to me - UpToPar
I agree with pretty much everything you said. I think right now, people are apprehensive to say that there are no adverse effects on children born of parents that are first cousins, but I think those studies are coming and I think sooner or later marriages between first cousins will be allowed. T...

[quote]What about siblings? What about mother and son? What about first cousins? What about polygamy? [/quote] Once the right (marriage) is recognized as fundamental, it just means that a state must have a compelling interest in denying one that right. It doesn't mean that all people under all c...

[quote]Yeaaaaa, I don't think this case says what you think it says. This case won't have any usefulness in a second amendment case IMO. [/quote] None. The two will be analyzed differently whether you agree or not. The fact of the matter is, states really didn't have any compelling interest in b...

re: Need the court decision actually explained to me - UpToPar
Equal protection/substantive due process, pick one. I'm not saying that either of these doctrines require gay marriage to be legal, just that if there are any that could potentially require it, it would be one of these. However, someone earlier that the court never even mentioned what level of scrut...

[quote]It's not a false choice, kids live in absolute shite environments until they're adopted [/quote] But we can't now force the single mother to put her child up for adoption just because gay marriage is now legal.
