    People get married for the dumbest reasons. You were good in bed so you'll also be good at life? We dive into a veritable swamp of legal and structural repercussions on vague assumptions. The only people that have any chance of having a fulfilling long term arrangement are people who know what the damn deal is. Polygamy would force people to give a lot more thought to how they entangle themselves.

    Correct me I'm wrong, but you're saying that protecting individuals from their own bad decisions is not the role of govt?

    If so, I'll surprise you and say that I agree. However, that's not my argument. My argument is not about protecting individuals, but protecting (and promoting) the social order, and by "social order", I do not mean "cultural norms".

    What is the difference of a man having 5 wives at once or being divorced 4 times and having 5 wives one at a time? Certainly I wouldn't think there was any loyalty there with the divorced ones. The papasan of my apartment complex in Bangkok, late 60's, early 70's had 5 wives and all were well taken care, each had their own apartment and car. But if I understood it right, the first wife was considered the major wife and all the rest minor wives. I never noticed any jealously, but the younger ones, four and five would fool around from time to time.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Will there be a huge run on these marriages - assuming we get rid of bull**** like allowing anybody under 21 to marry ever under any circumstances - I seriously doubt it. Who is going to take the time and effort to figure out how this marriage will function long term? Very few I assure you. Why you'd lose all the fun and drama of the impulse marriage!

    Not only should it be legalized, it should be idolized.

    l am not liberitarian

    l find such traditions and tendencies so destructive for the future of the society..

    they are allowed to live together at the same house ? yes

    at least they have enough freedom to do it .

    legalization of such marginal things may destroy a society faster than the other societies .

    their personal choices will affect their children too and again we come to a conclusion that the family union is important for the future and stability of the society

    Of course it's not the role of government. It's the role of the contractees to figure out how, exactly and definitively, to make this valuable. In our beautiful polygamized world we will have more options so we will be forced to give things more thought.

    Let me give you an analogy(?). Some people are spendthrifts and some are accumulators. Who is better off in the long term? Accumulation requires planning. Wastefulness does not.

    More thinking = more results

    Polygamy was actually quite common in the past and didn't destroy societies. You are assuming that many people would even want this type of marriage.

    I don't understand how polygamy being legalized would "destroy society." It can't be any worse than single parent households, right? Those children have even MORE people to fuss over them.

    Only because of child marriage. Like I said, of course they would be required to follow our age of consent laws like any other marriage.

    Polygamy, Pedophiles, Priests, Poles, Penn state----obviously another issue to hide behind the skirt of the 10th amendment

    as Romney tried to hide behind his wife's skirt so many times

    Romney never could touch the issue of his GGF being launched to Mexico by Lincoln, the anti--10th crusader
