Gay marriage triggers debate on polygamy unions

Recent legalisation of same-sex marriage in US leads to debate whether people can tie the knot with multiple partners.

    Supporters of polygamy in the US say they want it to be legalised, like gay marriage which the Supreme Court recently gave the green light to.

    Polygamy supporters argue that if marriage is no longer defined as between just one man and one woman, it also shouldn’t be limited to just two people.
