    We as a society have changed greatly over the last few decades, I think it is time to look at this in a serious and thoughtful manner, If "gay marriage" why not Polygamy ?

    I for one would rather a lonely woman needing a husband share a "good man" than to have a "bad man" all to herself.

    So long as ALL parties agree and are of AGE.. why not ?

    No logical reason to deny polygamy and promote same gender marriage. There is quite a bit of reasonable argument for the converse.

    If they legalize drugs, they should legalize polygamy. Go all the way. ;)

    ...because it's sloppy and leads to abandonment.

    Women get hurt because their partners leave them, and lots of men get hurt from never finding partners.

    There's also a massive child support issue.

    If you're an alpha elitist, it's great. If you're not, then not so much.

    There's also a concession to cultural degradation. Relationships are built around intimacy which requires culture in order to suggestively symbolize what you want.

    In polygamy, this gets dumped because people can satisfy their emotions through novelty instead.

    There are some serious legal issues that would have to be worked out. In the case of a divorce, how does property get divided up between all the spouses? Child support? Custody and legal guardianship? Suppose Husband is on a vent and Wife 1 wants to take him off, Wife 2 doesn't, then what? Does adding new spouses require the approval of other spouses or can it be done unilaterally? Can one or more spouse divorce a spouse without unanimous consent?

    Polygamy is bad for women, it's bad for children, and it's bad for most men.
