    Indifferent.


    Socially it made sense, when young men tended to die off early from war or accident, leaving a surplus of females... that hasn't really been the case for a long time though.

    But if people want to do that I don't really care.

    Two spouses? Screw that. One is one too many.

    I think it's disgusting and degrading why would anyone (male or female) want to be with someone who wants to be with someone else?
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

Simply require a written standard contract, prenup if you will, that covers any children or property rights between the individuals in case of separation or death.
    Would it require permission from all the existing spouses, or can anyone change the terms of the existing contract without agreement from them?

    So a majority of the parties can alter the terms of the minoritys' contract without the minoritys' consent?

    Everyone involved would have to agree to any changes made within the agreement including the addition of new spouses.

    I'm conservative, it's no body's business who, what or even how many I choose to form my family..... especially government.

    I don't support traditional polygamy (essentially, selling a bunch of women to a man as his house slaves and baby factories). However, from the options you gave, I don't think that's what you mean.

    I think what you mean is polyamory. Polyamory is an equal and consensual relationship between 3 or more partners of any combination of genders. And yes, I fully support legalizing marriage for polyamorous partners.

    Given the difficulty spouses have agreeing on much less important matters, all I can say is "Good luck with that"
