    LOL. If we allow polyandry, child rape is definitely sure to follow! Come, take up arms with me, brother. It is our mission to be the moral crusaders of this land and to rescue it from the evil tolerant!
    The OP asked if we personally supported it?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Either way, I don't see things here ending well for anyone in the long run.

    Best case scenario, one of them eventually gets sick of "sloppy seconds" and leaves. Worst case scenario, someone's getting knifed first.
    Then there's the fact that there are 3.5 billion women on the planet. I know. I know. This one is special. What do you want to bet that at some point, she drops both of them. There are also about 3.5 billion men on the planet.

    Re: you approve of polyandry ?

    while i myself would probably not be able to participate I totally support this if thats what people want to do. as long as its consenting adults.

    If polygamists and polandrist want to fight for the new right to participate in marriage i support it because its none of my business and i see no reason to stop them LEGALLY.

    the only hurdle they have is currently they dont have any precedence that im aware of to support them and how to write the law is the biggest. Like when husband one dies how are assets and kids split up etc, who gets custody is it joint etc. THats the only hurdle. I guess the best solution is that part stays blanket and the participants decided in the beginning.


    But i still support it sine im a fan of freedom and not forcing my views on others.

    They only want a limited government when it comes to things they don't like. When it comes to jesus values, they want a straight up fascist shariah law style dictatorship.

    Quite disgusting really.

    none of them

    but the family in which the individuals of a society are raised is the basis of that society and the form of this family shouldnt change according to every kind of sexual preference

    Lawyers said the "marriage" would only be recognised if they could prove polyandry - a woman having more than one husband - was part of their custom.

    I don't particularly like the wording -- whether one "approves" of another's relationship -- but in general, I "approve" of whatever honest and consensual agreement works for the people involved.

    However, I am not a huge fan of the whole infidelity aspect that is part of this particular case. Ideally, they would have made their needs clear before going out and cheating. And ideally, the men involved would have realized they can do better.

As such, to use one case of polyandry involving actual consent in order to justify thousands of cases of polygamy that don't doesn't cut it with me.

    In a perfect world where there really was true consent all around I'd say sure, but the world is not perfect and anything that sets a precedent will be used to establish the basis for the undermining of true human rights. .
    This depends on whether or not said polygamy is part of a "cultural" practice. In that case, you're right, and it typically involves some amount of coercing the women involved.

    However, polyamorous relationships of any gender combination don't always include those aspects. And it's not hard to tell the two apart. One is a cultural mandate, and the other is an individual decision the people involved reach for their own reasons.
