Rejected petition Make polyamorous civil marriage legal for same sex or a mix of up to 7 people

With increasing diversity it's time we thought about marriage law again. There are polyamorous relationships containing 3 or more partners who love each other and share sex together. We need a change in law to allow people to have polyamorous civil marriages.

More details

There needs to be a flexible approach to asset security with a formality drawn up before marriage of how everything split up if the marriage was to breakdown. Also some detail in the marriage if the married persons were allowed to have sex outside the marriage. This needs clearing up and should be asked when people enter into a marriage and be part of the register on all marriages because there are a lot of open partners relationships which could end up in being allowed to divorce.
