    you approve of polyandry ?

    two Kenyan men have signed an agreement to "marry" the same woman.

    The woman had been having affairs with both men for more than four years and apparently refused to choose between them.

    The agreement sets out a rota for Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani to stay in her house and states they will both help raise any children she bears.

    Mr Mwendwa told the BBC he loved the woman and said the contract would "set boundaries" and "keep the peace".

    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.

    No, definitely do not support.
    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.

    Sounds like both of these men are stupid and there is no law against that. If it's OK with them, it's OK with me.

    I don't care.

    Only if polygamy is also allowed.

    I don't care what consenting adults do, I just do not think the government should support or recognize non-conventional arrangements. It would be okay if they stopped promoting conventional arrangements as well.

    Re: you approve of polyandry ?

    I don't really approve of polyandry since people just use it as an excuse to justify polygamy. Polygamy as actually practiced devalues women and is the product of social institutions that put such pressure on women to knuckle under that there is no real consent involved. 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. .
