Breaking news: Dr. Nelson toughens up

According to The 7.30 Report, Opposition Leader Dr. Brendan Nelson M.P. has called a leadership ballot. He is going to stand again for the leadership as a new, tougher leader who intends, among other things, to advance the cause of same-sex ‘marriage’. What an odd cause on which to stake one’s leadership. But in any case it was the decriminalisation of adultery and the legalisation of serial polygamy that was the death blow for marriage as a social institution; ‘gay marriage’ is just the punch-line to the whole sick joke.

I didn't know adultery was ever a criminal offence!

But you are certainly right about the "no-fault" divorce laws; they were an absolute disaster.

"Serial polygamy" - I wish people would use that phrase more, as it is most accurate.

In some jurisdictions, even in the West, it still is, e.g. the U.S. military.

In mediaeval times I think that it was pursued through the ecclesiastical justice system before being handed over to the secular arm e.g. The Duke of Suffolk, I think, during the early sixteenth century.
