There is nothing in the Constitution that could be construed as giving the Federal government any say over marriage.

Long ago, the Supreme Ct ruled on polygamy, so it would be no surprise to see them address the issue again.

That ruling was when Utah was a federal territory, so there was no 10th Amendment issue involved.

No, it wouldn't be a surprise at all. In my non-legal opinion, though, the Feds shouldn't be involved with marriage any more than they should have stuck their nose into abortion.
