    Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage.

    “It’s about marriage equality,” Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. “You can’t have this without polygamy.
