    Should Polygamy be allowed?

    Should it be allowed? Utah seems to think so. What could possibly be the benefit, considering there are more men in the world than women. Polygamy allowed or no?

    Re: Should Polygamy be allowed?

    In my books, polygamy is a big no-no. Traditional marriage requires a single union of husband and wife and once it is consummated, only death will break the marriage bonds. Modern views on marriage include gay marriage where persons of the same sex get married. To me, marriage is not just a mere union of body and soul, but it is a lifetime contract which the partners are bound to keep until death. Polygamy destroys the harmony and unity of marriage, especially if the person has two sexual orientations - as a straight person on one hand and as a gay/lesbian on the other. You cannot be expected to divide your commitment between your spouses, and every spouse will demand more from you. With the exception of the Muslim faith which allows polygamy, you get married to one and only one person, or you don't.

    Not really, no, mainly because with such a mentality ingrained in them, dozens of women will be going after the same guy(say, the top guy of the group, or the alpha male) thus leaving a shortage of women, causing big problems. As long as people believe that it should be a two-person thing, the world will stay balanced.

    The question should not be if its allowed, whether it should be legal.

    Technically if gays can get married, then why not multiple wives? Multiple husbands? Animals?

    Where do you draw the line with polygamy?

    There is already a shortage of women in this world, including this country.

    Of course, to clarify, I am a Christian so I am against this, as well as same sex marriage.

    Though I do think there is some merit to domestic partnership.

    People should have the right to practice freedom of marriage - regardless. I am a Christian and I thoroughly believe this. If you want to marry more than one person and they are all ok with that - you should be able to. I you want to marry a tree - you should be able to. It's not someone elses' choice to make. The fact that people are still for these kind of restrictions truly shows how primitive people still are lol.

    Why on earth would any sane man want more than 1 wife?
    1, if she's a good mate, is plenty.
    2, if she's a bad mate, is too much.

    Re: Should Polygamy be allowed?

    There is a lot of talk about 'objectifying a woman' this or 'how could someone deal with multiple wives' that, women can have several men as well. Polygamy exists whether we want it to or not. The legal marriage aspect is the only thing up for debate. Whether we allow the marriage to be legal under the law will not swing whether this is already happening.
    Personally, I would prefer the person who makes everyone aware that they love several people as opposed to the person who secretly screws behind everyone's back.

    If it's between consenting adults, it's none of my business what gender they are, how many of them there are, what they do together or how they choose to live.

    My faith in humanity has been restored. Seriously guys? Who gives a f***? Do people have nothing better to do than to rag on gays? That's 1000 times more sad than them being gay.

    For my Opinion I wouldn't allow polygamy since there are lots of men in the world that probably needs love of women. Even though there are gays and having same sex marriage, I wouldn't still allow this, for my opinion because there's a lot of things that God wants us to do.
