    Like I said, I'm not against the idea of polygamy, and I'd support making it legal if there was a way to do it without major cost and effort. Dan's suggestion is a good start.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Typos aside, I'm confused, to say the least. I can only think of 3 mentions of language per se' within this thread. Twice in post #420 and once in #425. Two posts! Four times and 3 posts if you want to include this one.

    All I am trying to do here is to get you to try to think outside your box of word application and see how we're applying some words differently you you, and/or to get you to show us how you are using some words that are applied different by us. Like my American/British example, when an American says "fag" the Brit think of the object Americans call a cigarette. When a Brit says "fag", the American thinks a derogatory word for homosexual. And that is with two people who supposedly speak the same language. So where might you and I being misreading each others posts by applying definitions that we learned that are different than what the other learned?

    I am in no way trying to insult you, or put down your use of the English language. If it has come across as that, then I truly am sorry and apologize. Indeed, the only other thing I've ever said of you before was an editing issue, not a language issue, and I noted that it was a minor thing at that. But if we really are using different definitions for the same word anywhere along the line we could be arguing against each other on a point we might actually be agreeing on. Am I really being terrible to want to clear that kind of misunderstanding up and to also do so in a way that will remove any confusion from others at the same time?

    I voted "others". Our government should only support, by law, a single partner in marriage. Other partners being involved with a married pair can do so, but without government involvement. This is essentially what we have now, and it is fine with me. Why should we make it more complicated?

    As a gender, we women are normally sane. We make rational judgements (we are the ones who stop for directions, you know). Why then, do many of us go weakkneed at the sight of the blighter who has everything going for him, including the wedding ring and attendant vows that he has taken with his wife? The Married Man has long been coveted, by more than just his wife… Intelligent, successful and absolutely sensible women have found joy in sneaking around with another woman’s man, living with the guilt, being hidden for an eternity and essentially keeping their lives on hold till the bloke decides to do the decent thing by them. Which incidentally, in most cases, doesn’t ever happen. We shed vast oceans of tears, rant about the injustice of it all, and then quickly reapply our mascara and dive into another affair, with… No prizes for guessing, honey, another married man!"

    I'm kind of at a loss as to how this relates to poly marriages, in any sense yet alone legal, or as to what your position on it is.

    Good grief. 45 Pages of this. Polygamy is still practiced in China, just not legally. Many men there have multiple households. I believe the female version of it is called polyandry, and that is practiced in some South American cultures. Occasionally there will be something on one of those educational channels about it. I saw one not too long ago. As to polygamy, it favors the woman. It makes a man responsible for every woman he sleeps with. In our culture a man can victimize as many women as he wants with a wink and a nod from his peers. It is the women who suffer in this sytem. I don't know the rationale for polyandry but this source suggests a couple.

    Polyandry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    The word you're groping for is polgyny. Polyandry and polygyny are two different forms of polygamy.
