The definition of polygamy is having too many wives.

/So is monogamy

Just another scheme by the libo-lefty-atheistic types to extract the adherents of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints from their proper place among the righty-christian-conservo-republican camp.

I heard they did a legal and religious marriage, then a legal divorce without a religious divorce. Then they'd remarry and redivorce in a similar manner repeatedly. The end product was multiple religious marriages but no religious divorces.

I'm not opposed to polyamory, but it's not a healthy thing for a society. Well, at least the style where men marry a bunch of women. I've heard tell of marrying into a clan where women chose their males and everyone chips into supporting the kids, but that was Tibet.

The punishment for polygamy should be to live with more than one woman. A fate worse than death.
 
2013-12-14 11:29:46 PM
Sounds like they picked up on the old Saudi trick. Islam allows a max of four wives, but if you're married to the fourth, have a one-night-stand with her, then in the morning yell "I DIVORCE YOU!" three times, that fourth slot opens up again.

The documentaries I've seen make it appear that the men only live with the latest wife - once they tire of one, they just get another and the former favorite goes to live with the other women.  They'll see him for a booty call or a reality show taping.

That said - if you think one spouse is hell, then it seems to me that two would be hell, death and damnation.

If they're willing to let the guy bone whoever he wants, I'm guessing they aren't really the type to stand up to him or anything.

Yes, bigamy is illegal.  But it is perfectly legal to live with your wife and a bunch of other women.

Also, what is to prevent someone from saying, "I am now married to Alice, Brenda, Christine, and Darla"?  If the State only recognizes people who are legally married (with a marriage license) how can they enforce a bunch of people just saying, "We are all married"?

That's a really, really quick first run at it.  Since this was debunked decades ago, I can probably find you tons more.  But I'm on vacation so do your own damn literature review.

Here's the thing I don't get about menstruation-- why do they have to keep rubbing it all over everything? Maybe it's just my wife, and maybe it's just something they do in Belgium because that's where she was born, but she thinks it's such a hoot to stick two fingers down her pants while she's on her period and then swipe them across my forehead or on by briefcase or even on my toothbrush. Anyone else find this annoying when their women does it to them, or am I just overreacting?  Yesterday I was eating asparagus and she "swiped" me and told me "you should be thankful-- now your plate looks more seasonal."

I don't know. Call me weird but I'm uncomfortable with this.  How do you react when your wife, girlfriend, coworkers, aunt, or other women do this to you?  Am I being closed minded even bringing it up?  I know, it's 2013-- I should be more progressive. But it just doesn't feel right.

If there is anyone I hate agreeing with it is a religious fundamental reality star. So I'll just agree with the judge in his reasoning. There are many consensual kink relationships that would be illegal under this portion of the law. Striking it down removes one more tool for persecution of such relationships. What consenting adults do with each other within relationships should be nobody's business but their own.
 
2013-12-15 01:21:46 AM
If 3 people, or 5 people, or 8 people or whatever want to get married in a big gang, who the fark should have any say about it other than those people?  As long as they're all adults, why should anybody care?  If the idea of gang-sex is repulsive, the status of their marriage isn't going to stop them.  Why shouldn't a bunch of folks be able to enter into a marriage contract, not just two?  Divorce would be dodgy, but it already is with only two people.

I don't think they can.. or care.  I suppose you could religiously marry a bunch of spouses, but as long as you claim only one on the tax return and only have one marriage license, you're only legally married to one.  Sucks for the others when you die and they all want a piece of your stuff, Alpha wife gets to call the shots.
