    It seems that this discussion asks a simple question as long as the word legal is not involved. That brings in contracts for all parties, progeny, etc. I wouldn't mind three or four wives, but I just can't imagine the divorce problems being conducive to sanity. Three or four girlfriends would be lots mo' better, fo' sure. And vice versa.

    By the way, the current King of Thailand was born in Massachusetts. He has only one wife and has been married to her for 60 years or so. But the way I understand it, the first wife is the major wife and if the King had more than one wife, the heir would come from the first wife. That is unless she failed to produce a son then it would trickle on down to wife number two etc.

    I left Thailand in 1976 and Polygamy has been outlawed since I left, although it is still practice. By outlawing numerous wives, this means any inheritance always go to the first wife regardless. When I was in Laos, one of the top generals we supported had 18 wives. But they were at war and the general more or less made them his wife to ensure they would be taken care of. When he came to the states, he had to give up all but one wife.

    Although I see nothing wrong in having more than one wife, that is as long as all are well taken care of. I sure wouldn’t want more than one, sometimes I think one is one too many.

    As for the movie, I would say it probably represents Thailand and the royal family as they were back in the 1800’s.
    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.

    3_ only if they want it to be legalized ..
    1.) again that would only be are opinion
    3.) when its a matter like this that represents freedom and theres no victim whether we agree with it or not we should never stand in its way. I could never vote against it as long as like i said, its between sound mind consenting adults. If i did vote against it theres no way i wouldnt feel like a huge ignorant selfish hypocrite.

A study done in India, showed this to be true where the bride child of an arranged marriage was sent to live with the groom child and his parents until they were old enough to be married. Many of the couples refused to consummate the marriage.
    No doubt. I have seen that before.

    I don't see how it would. I can't deny that legalizing things makes them easier to regulate and control. Banning things has the opposite effect.
