Polygamy rocks.

Not quite, but polyamory, perhaps.

Jubeebee: That guy has the same smug smile in every picture in TFA.


And this.

qorkfiend: This arrangement seems prohibitively expensive. Three mortgages and 24 kids? Yikes.


Have to wonder if public assistance pays any part of that? Since the second and third marriages are not legally recognized they are single moms with lots of dependents.

Because dashing, good looking, well off men would inevitably have 30+ insanely hot wives.

Leaving the rest of us with the fatties.


or raising other mens kids.

Wait, that happens now.

Monogamy is just a way to spread the work of raising one rich guys kids among the rest of the male population.

I wouldn't want the extra headaches that come with marrying additional women but all three are very hittable especially after cranking out an average of 8 kids each.

We already engage in the former.

If you want three wives and the situation is not coerced as most polygamist relationships are, good for you. That said, the thing that always ruins me about these mormon multiple marriages is that you rotate beds. Three wives and it is never an orgy? Where's the fun in that?

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Odd that SLC doesn't go after him since their church supposedly doesn't allow it anymore.


SLC would do what exactly? He's only legally married to 1 woman. He's screwing and having children with 3 women. That's not illegal or else a whole bunch of pro athletes would be in jail.

And, btw, they are not members of the LDS church. They are FLDS, which is a different animal and does not condemn polygamy. They would be excommunicated from the LDS church if they were members and this situation came to light.

And, from a practical standpoint, this situation doesn't involve the kind of abuse that other FLDS members have partaken in, such as child brides, forced marriages and what not. It seems counter-productive to go after these folks. They were all adults who entered into the arrangement knowingly AND there are 24 children dependent upon them. To toss the adults into jail would throw these children into even worse chaos and dependence upon the state welfare and social service system, which I assume they are not a part of now simply because TFA did not mention it.

also, it complicates legal relationships. marriage already makes stuff complicated between two people... but, how should polygamy work? with community property, is half the husband's and half split between the wives (I think this is not fair, but if you're talking about polygamy, you're probably not talking to a group of people who have women's rights on the forefront of their mind). is it split equally? who inherits whose shares? etc. furthermore, co-ownership is generally frowned upon since it locks property away from commerce...

but, the biggest reason, those in power think it's gross. personally, i think polygamy will be the next big civil rights issue after gay marriage is allowed. (give it 20-40 years).

/ I think polygamy is dumb and borderline immoral... but I don't care if it were legal. as long as you could make sure that those involved are consenting to the relationship.


I would have all of my wives sign a prenup stating you get a fraction of the communal property based on the number of wives. So if I have 30 wives, and one wants to leave. You get 1/30th of the property.... Or this triscuit. Enjoy!

Ideally in a group marriage, everyone should be married to everyone else in the marriage. Everyone is an equal partner. But in traditional polygamy, this is not the case. Wife #1 and Wife #2 have no legal relationship with each other, only with the man.

The easy way would be to deal with equal shares.

It's not that much harder to math out 1/4th of an estate to the one spouse that divorced the others, than it is to divide 50/50. Nor are custody issues a problem; everyone involved is a parent, divide it up. That would mean equal custody would, with one spouse leaving a 4-person marriage, end up with three weeks at the collective home and 1 week with the spouse who left. Easy.


but, the biggest reason, those in power think it's gross. personally, i think polygamy will be the next big civil rights issue after gay marriage is allowed. (give it 20-40 years).

/ I think polygamy is dumb and borderline immoral... but I don't care if it were legal. as long as you could make sure that those involved are consenting to the relationship.


I would have zero issues with polygamy, IF it were egalitarian. Women able to have multiple husbands as easily as men having multiple wives, two couples getting cross-married, etc. The consent issue is thorny, but that same issue exists with "normal" marriages too; it's basically a separate (but not irrelevant or ignorable) issue. I'm not sure I'd ever want to get into it, but I don't see why other people who want it shouldn't have the option.

And I don't think the Mormon community is egalitarian one bit. Nor am I Mormon. I'm not trying to justify their crap, just making an esoteric point. Polygamy in practice has almost always meant polygyny, and has basically amounted to marginalization of women. That's heinous, and shouldn't be allowed.

Have you ever looked at real estate in Salt Lake City? Polygamous or not, they build single family homes for huge families. It's common to find older homes (50 years old +) that look pretty normal from the street, but inside they're three, four, and five(!) thousand square feet. Huge full basements in a big footprint, walk-out basements, casitas, multiple baths, massive dining rooms, etcetera. On big lots, too. And many of them are very nice inside, all upgraded and sometimes even quite chic. But from the outside, they look like ordinary, low-slung ranch-style places. Some bungalows, too. Oh, and they like to plant trees. Many older neighborhoods in SLC have magnificent big old trees. Very pleasant shade in the summer.

With any one of his three wives, I would have said she was WAY way WAY out of his league. And then there are three uber-hot, slim (after birthing 4-10 kids), fashionably dressed women... now I'm just really confused. I have a possible explanation but it's kind of crude, and I have no way to verify, so I'll just stick with being befuddled.

//For the poster who said it would work out if they got their periods at different times - yeah, not gonna happen if they live in the same house. Trust me on this one!!

True. But also, I'm not sold on lifelong monogamy, either - and certainly not the one-sided monogamy of polygamy. I don't think humans are intended to be committed in that way, I certainly am not. Polyamory simply embraces my nature better.

John Napkintosh: Why is polygamy illegal again?


Isolated instances of polygamy are not problematic worldwide, as their effect on the gene pool is not at all large. 24 kids is a drop in the ocean when you compare it to 6 billion people in the world. However, when you localize the effects of it, it can become a genetic disaster. Most people meet and marry within a relatively close radius of where they live. If the gene pool in that area were heavily populated with half-brothers/sisters, it would create problems trying to match unrelated people for procreation purposes and it's likely that incestuous relationships would develop as well, in which case you could have clusters of genetically disabled children.

Right now it's not an issue, because normal people don't want to risk getting prosecuted for polygamy, even though it's unlikely to happen. It's a stick to keep things at the status quo, and unless there's a huge upsurge in polygamist relationships, the prosecutors aren't going to be too concerned about it. However, if you legalize it, then everyone's going to want to do it. It isn't the same as homosexuality, which will have no discernible effect on the quality of the gene pool (though it may decrease the quantity of it). That's why polygamy != homosexuality. Human males are genetically programmed as an evolutionary instinct to want to mate with multiple females. Legalize polygamy and human instinct is going to take over and then we will have a national problem in about 100 years or so.
