I didn't think it was necessary.

Isn't it more or less obvious how polyamory or polygamy or any "other social relationship" would be treated under the proposed system? The same as all the others, predicted utility correlated to incentives.

And that's the point. I'm proposing this principle of involving the government in marriage and other social relationships without knowing which relationships provide the most utility.

I don't claim any insight on that, I'm just saying in advance what I think ought to be done with that knowledge to the degree it's had.

I don't understand what the proposed system is trying to change. As in we are usually trying to tune our systems to be better and not worse, right? In arguments that homosexual relationships should not be recognised it is usually implicit if not explicit that it would not produce social value or it would produce social anti-value. In those that favour they try to argue how it produces recognised sources of social value.

If the current way of governing is not the proposed way of governing could you make more explicit what you think the current procedure is and how it differs from the proposed?
