Montana polygamist applies to legally marry his second wife, because gay marriage

Polygamist Nathan Collier, who has appeared on the TLC reality show Sister Wives, said Wednesday that he had applied for a marriage license with his second wife, Christine, claiming he was inspired by last week's Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. The reality TV star and his wives Victoria and Christine applied in Billings, Montana. Collier said he would sue if the application is turned down. "It's about marriage equality," he said. "You can't have this without polygamy."

Collier says he asked the ACLU of Montana to help him if he decides a lawsuit is necessary. ACLU legal director Jim Taylor tells The Associated Press that while he hasn't seen Collier's request and had no opinion about his case, the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling "is about something very different."
