Will same-sex marriage lead to more radical marriage reform? Should it? Conservatives warn of a slippery slope from same-sex marriage toward polygamy, adult incest, and the dissolution of marriage as we know it; many progressives embrace these changes. Professor Stephen Macedo argues that both sides are wrong: the same principles of democratic justice that demand marriage equality for same sex couples also lend support to monogamous marriage.
