Inspired By Supreme Court Decision, Montanans Apply For License For Polygamous Marriage

AP reported yesterday that in Billings,. Montana, a man and his two wives, citing the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision, have applied for marriage licenses to legitimize their polygamous marriage. The man, Nathan Collier, a former Mormon who was excommunicated for polygamy, said: "It's about marriage equality, You can't have this without polygamy." Officials in the Yellowstone County clerk's office are consulting with the county attorney's office before giving a final answer.  The county's chief civil litigator says that his research so far shows that  "the law simply doesn't provide for that yet."
