    As long as the adults involved are capable of consent and do consent, I see no problem with it. Even if it were legal, I doubt even a tiny portion of society would ever enter into multiple marriages anyway.

    The word extreme has become a bumper sticker response to anyone who has conservative values. You never hear anyone on the left called extreme.

    There are plenty of conservatives on here, even a couple who don't support same sex marriage, who do not claim that the gays are trying to destroy marriage. That is an extreme position.

    Any extreme lobs in here? You didn't call the gay guy that said he was anti marriage extreme now did you. You just said he wasn't representative of all gays. See how this works ?

    His position isn't extreme, just something I don't agree with. There are extreme liberals positions, but I haven't seen too many if any on marriage.

    Yet you call me extreme because you disagree with me. As I said only cons are ever labeled extreme .

    So should we limit discussion of gay marriage to one thread as well then? I think the OP poses an interesting question... every bit as valid as discussing gay marriage IMO.

    Well, I am currently dating 3 women, and if I could marry all 3, I might be inclined to do so. I don't see any problem with it from an ethical standpoint - the only hurdle is legal.

    So yes, I am in favor of polygamy.

    I think it's natural. If you look throughout human history, one man with many wives is the norm, not the exception.

    I think all marriages are a waste of time...nothing but a lifetime commitment to mediocrity in most cases, IMO.

    The official wedding vows should be:

    'Do you promise to love, honor and cherish this person for the rest of your life even though the odds are incredibly high against this person being the best person for you out of the entire population of the planet?'


    But, if a sane, consenting adult wants to marry another/several sane, consenting adult(s)...go ahead.

When it comes to some forms of polygamy that we have seen here in the US, the most common that occurs here in the US (at least up til now, although I believe this will change) is where old men from the FLDS clans marry really young girls, in their mid teens, with permission from their parents. The laws that allow for this, laws that allow parents to give their children permission to marry prior to them being 18 is one of the things that needs to change, especially if we are considering removing the limitation on numbers of spouses a person can have legally.
    So what's the magical age where women are suddenly old enough to be in an adult relationship?
