Collier said of his decision:
“You can’t have [same-sex marriage] without polygamy…
“My second wife Christine, who I’m not legally married to, she’s put up with my crap for a lot of years. She deserves legitimacy.”

Yellowstone County chief litigator Kevin Gillen said that although Collier “deserves an answer” and is currently reviewing Montana’s bigamy laws,”the law simply doesn’t provide for that yet.”
Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.
