    Provided that ALL parties are adults and not coerced, of course.
    To be honest, I don't care at all about polygamy, with the conditions you list. The issue, however, is it opens a potential massive legal mess that we really need to figure out before we let people engage in polygamy wholesale. Once we know how to handle it all? Go for it. Until then, we need to tread carefully. The courts are clogged up badly enough as it is.

    Gay marriage will probably be widely legalized over the next two or three decades, and this will make arguments against legal polygamy more difficult to support.

    I do but this has nothing to do with then it is about next taboo to be lifted. Don't misuse my other political views. I shouldn't mention them at all.

    Yep. There are areas where our laws would need to be adjusted, and unfortunately some of it will happen in the courts, which is not ideal.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's not just areas where it will need to be adjusted, but huge swaths that will have to be entirely re-written. Custody, child and spousal support, divorce, etc. are all going to be gutted and we'll have to start over. It's no small step.

    That's what I meant, just didn't word it strong enough.

    That's fine, I didn't mean to say that you didn't understand the severity, I just think that most people who support polygamy just don't understand the implications. They think it'll be something simple and it just isn't. Marriage is currently handled almost as a business transaction. It's either an ongoing concern or it's not. While married, it is, when divorced, it isn't. Assets are sold off and property is distributed in a hopefully fair and amicable fashion. But when you have three or more people in a relationship, what happens? It's no longer a binary situation. How do you split up assets? If you take the simplest scenario, people A, B and C, if person A and B get divorced, does B get 1/3 of the total assets? What if person B has only been in the relationship for 1 year and A and C have been there for 10 years? Worse, what if A and B get divorced, but B and C remain married? Who gets what then?

    I'm not even going to get into child custody when the children may be legally adopted by large multiples of people who may end up hating each other.

    Polygamy is one of those things that, in theory, sounds great, but when you get down to the details, is a massive monster.

    You think celibacy is normal because..."people in celibacy are much more spiritual then (sic) others". Your criteria for normal human behavior then is being more spiritual than others?

    I'm going to step out on a limb here and say that based upon your logic regarding normal, you don't know the difference between your hole and an ass in the ground.
