The little war that never ends
Though the founding documents give a moment of approval** to Natural Law, the USA fed gov't has always been run by aristocratic demons who hate Natural Law. Their opposition was cautious at first, now it's total and all-consuming.
Two aspects of Natural Law were targets from the start.
Natural Law is strict about sanitation and diet, strict about the duties of male and female, but it does NOT say that slavery and polygamy are wrong. Natural Law provides rules for two basic forms of employment: the independent trader or artisan, and the owner / serf arrangement. It also provides rules for both monogamy and polygamy.
Our NY aristocrats disapproved of the Dixie version of serfdom because it competed with the NY industrial version of serfdom. Dixie serfdom offered lifetime security, while NY preferred disposable serfs who live in constant fear and die when no longer useful. They turned this brand competition into a "right" which served Lincoln well when his blood fetish ran strong and he needed to kill 30% of his country.
Their hatred of polygamy was equally powerful, but the targets refused to satisfy the NY blood hunger. NY tried making war against the Mormons in 1840, but LDS was smart enough to give way and maintain survival. This low-level war has never ended.
The appeals court ruling reversed a 2013 U.S. district court decision that determined the state violated polygamists’ right to privacy and religious freedom. While polygamy has essentially been decriminalized since that decision, this new ruling brings back a law prohibiting married people from living with additional partners even if they are not legally married to the other “spouses.”
Note that the WaPo demon uses quotes around multiple "spouses" in the same way that fact-loving people use quotes around the NY same-sex "spouses".

**Footnote: Just realized.... the only reference to Natural Law in the founding documents states that the "laws of Nature" require the North American colonies to split from the British government. This is a dubious claim. The controlled experiment
proved that the split was an unnecessary waste of lives.
The document doesn't use Natural Law as the basis of anything but independence. Needless to say, Madman Lincoln smashed the basis when Dixie tried to re-use it. So even this limited reference is no longer valid.
