    The main arguments against it was that polygamy restricts the number of females available for marriage (depriving males of a partner) and that it was an assault against monogamy.

    It is not. Although I don't see the odds as particularly high in the next twenty years, if polygamy were made legal people would still be able to enter into monogamous relationships.

    The only halfway reasonable argument against polygamy I've seen so far is that the logistics of divorce and inheritances would be impractical at best.

    Um, no, you missed the point on purpose, there exists a rationale that exists in the historical record as to why the US on a Federal level outlawed polygamy. You can ignore it if you are not arguing about it, but if you are arguing about it, you just look silly posting non sequiturs.


    It is not. Although I don't see the odds as particularly high in the next twenty years, if polygamy were made legal people would still be able to enter into monogamous relationships.
    Polygamists practice monogamy? That is either dimensional travel.....or a misunderstanding of both terms.

    If this was a legitimate point made by the government for outlawing polygamy, I have not missed it on purpose. If the idea that a fair number of breeding pairs must be preserved has already been covered, it's a new one to me.

    You stated that polygamy is an attack on monogamy. If there were any basis for that then you'd have to show that people would not be allowed to enter into monogamous relationships. If you cannot, then the idea of polygamy being "an attack" is just silly.

    I can't help the fact that you are arguing from a position of ignorance. I cannot force you to read Reynolds to understand the arguments made in outlawing polygamy in the US. Since you have not read it, your "accident" is posting on something you are not well versed on...while admitting to being ignorant these basic "new ones".

    I'm not going to lead you to the water.

    After I invest very heavily in diamonds I will staunchly support this polygamy/polyandry thing, reservations about legal complications be damned.
