    ..and those age of consent laws ned to be moved to 21. It's disgusting that teenagers are allowed to make such a critical decision while still having zits and hormonal issues.

    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
    You're arguing a point I agree with you on.

    The analogy you gave does not threaten the social order; it only threatens the financial security of the individuals involved

    If I had a daughter, I'd rather she die an 80 year old virgin spinster than spend 1 day as a sister wife. You get why or you'll never get why.

    I agree to an extent. I think it should be 18 across the board. I think it should be that way for everything too. Not, oh you're old enough to fight in a war but not old enough to have a beer crap.

    I'm not arguing, I'm pontificating. Let an old man have his pleasures.

    So you think TM people don't have financial problems? How do they stack up against a 4 income household? See? It's better than TM. Just harder to sort out.

    That would be her choice though, not yours.

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.
    Pero, I enjoy the movie "The King and I," which I rewatch from time to time. Since you saw firsthand, was the movie reasonably accurate? The number one wife produced the heir, which seemed reasonable. Great movie!

    I don't think you should be allowed to enlist at the age of 21 either. But at least it's a good thing. Marriage OTOH is just as problematical as evading IEDs.

    Polygamous societies are less stable, less productive, and less peaceful than monogamous ones. Unmarried young men are the most socially destructive demographic. No thanks.
