I take the Rodney Dangerfield argument. Why do you want two women? SO they have someone to talk to when you're done?
I dont; one mother-in-law is plenty enough for me.
But on what moral/legal/constitutional basis does our government deny this basic human right to three consenting adults?
None of those reasons are sufficient.
The answer is because plural marriage is only valid when God commandments. When He doesn't command it, it's not allowed.
We are in a period where it's been prohibitted. Should God decide that we should engage in it for some reason, He can freely command otherwise.
The Bible is silent on God's will for man at the present. That's ultimately why the Bible is not enough. Because if the Bible is true, we have to live off every word that proceeds from the Mouth of God. We are told to seek wisdom and knowledge from His hands. If we deny that God continues to reveal His will, we are in essence, denying the message contained in the Bible.
God is the God of the Living, not the dead.
Which is why we have the Magisterium and that I am a Catholic.
Actually, it depends on your religious beliefs.
You know, there maybe plausible situations in which polygamy is necessary.
Its not wrong as long as they are all consenting adults, if I want to marry both of my girlfriends it should be only my business.
I must prefer to see a man marry two women and take responsibility for them and his children then I would to see him knock up two women and run away from responsibility.
Of course, as both of those options are prohibitted by the Lord, I would most prefer to see neither.
Even if its technically illegal its still going on, I used to see a cougar in California who was married to a rich Jewish guy from Los Angeles, she claimed this guy wanted 2 wives and she was the second one, he moved her in the home and everything and did a little ceremony all that, he just didn't get a marriage license. Theres nothing stopping me from having a ceremony with my 2 wives and us living together like man and wives, the marriage certificate from the court house is just a piece of paper.
