    strawmans are strawmans.

    if you support alternative marriages and are against polygamy then you are being hypocritical in your position.
    alternative marriages are anything outside of 1 man and 1 women.

    I don't see to many conservatives arguing for polygamy or incest marriages.
    umm no they don't apply to religious people your information is highly flawed.

    Biblically, a man was required to provide each wife a house or a lifestyle equivalent to another wife. It was not an arrangement for the poor man. It was expensive, and probably more a sign of wealth.

The argument for polygamy is this: If God were set against Polygamy he would have provided a law to one of his prophets in the Old Testament to ban it. There are some areas in the bible where God warns against it, but it is not outright banned - so morally and religiously there is no strict rule against it.

    Deuteronomy 21:15-17
    Deuteronomy 17:17

    Polygamy was banned under the Roman laws, which the rest of the Christian world adopted, it spread through Europe and then to the United States and South America. Frankly, more than one wife in the house seems masochistic to me but each to their own.
    It is clear that God intended marriage to be between one man, and one woman. I mean, two chapters into the Bible, but also throughout.

    Genesis 2:24 English Standard Version (ESV)

    24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

    It's conservatives that take part in incrstuous relationships with their own families. It's conservatives in polygamous arrangements that want to legitimize it as a marriage.

    Two men or two women marrying is no longer an alternative marriage. It is just simply marriage. So no hypocrisy taking place.

    In the Middle East they go by this rule, seems to work well for them.

    The best answer that I have found, after some in depth research into recent court cases, for the answer to your question is, "the state." Specifically as it relates to the tax incentives and inheritance laws of marriage. If a polygamist relationship is allowed, then the probability of fraud goes up quite a bit and thus, the State could be forced to pay out the benefits of a polygamous relationship with very little control over the supposed societal benefits associated with a family structure that is anchored by marriage.

    You do realize that telling a woman she can't marry a certain man and must save herself for another man who she may not want to marry is both Orwellian and sexist. Shall we go back to arranged marriages while we're at it?
    Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?

    That's retarded. What conservatives are arguing for your liberal stereotypes of conservatives?
