But test cases such as these are important for setting legal precedents that can either increase or decrease the legal restrictions for how people love one another. So while the law has only been enforced twice, I wonder how many times cases around this law have been used to set legal precedents that restrict marriage rights. It is something of interest enough in the poly community for people to have called for mobilization.

Simply because an unjust law hasn't been enforced isn't reason enough to not call for it's repeal.
