Immediately following the news that the Supreme Court had struck down same-sex marriage bans nationwide, Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum spoke to colleague Greta Van Susteren by phone about the potential ramifications. Both women seemed unusually concerned about the possibility of polygamy.

“We’re just trying to think about the ramifications when a precedent is set what it means down the road, right?” MacCallum said. “So suppose three people say, ‘we want to be a marriage.’ We’re three people, and we love each other, and we want to be marriage. What’s to prevent that under this?”

Van Susteren replied, “I don’t know that there is. I mean, you know, that will have to wind up to the Supreme Court.”

Using the country’s “evolution” on the issue of the Confederate flag as an analogy, Van Susteren made the argument that things can change in unexpected ways. “I’m not saying we’re going to have what you hypothesized, but what the court does, it attempts to look at, case by case, whatever comes before it,” she added.
