I tend to agree with anti-discriminatory laws. For example, if an employer decides to pay black people half of white people or men three times as much as women for the same work, then I can the government regulating that. It means that a subclass of people can not be formed.
I think a simple model if you are "poly" married is to just get the health benefits in cash instead of the employer trying to get health insurance for you.
