    Can you tell me how so, using quotes from our conversations and keeping any new opinions out?

    Ok, well just giving me a newspaper article doesn't do anything for me. I can interpret that data to have almost no bearing on this debate. It simply talks about the pregnancy rate of people in and out of wedlock. What does that prove or disprove about monogamy again? Please, no new opinions, there's plenty of information on the table right now.

    It would be too complicated if you mean "legal benefits for multiple spouses" (having more than one partner at a time is already legal, obviously).

    Sure, marry whoever following these rules.

    Jack marries Betty.

    Say Jack wants to marry Constance.

    (Polygamy means literally "more than one wife". More than one husband is "polyandry".)

    The marriage can't occur unless Betty consents.

    Jack's already entered into a contract with Betty, and his marriage to another will affect the terms of the original contract and therefore she must agree to any alterations to that contract.

    Also there's a huge practical issue of both property dispensation in divorce, and upon death of one of the spouses, and the matter of child custody and child support. Which are merely legal matters the morons we have in the legislature nimbly avoid by refusing to make polygamy/polyandry legal.

    There is nothing immoral about multiple marriages, provided the parties are all consenting adults.

    Because polygamy is currently illegal, only the flakes and wierdos do it.

    Freedom shouldn't be restricted just because the legislators currently in session are too damn stupid to figure it out.

    Get smarter legislators.

    Having multiple partners is already totally legal. "Legal polygamy" would just be legal marriage benefits awarded to each spouse (which would just add to the overcomplicated BS that is govt-sponsored "legal marriage")

    What benefits available would be made worse with the addition of more spouseses...spices...speeses? Spousi? Ahhh **** it.


    Though I can see where the tax breaks for Head of Household would really pay off...

    Correct.

    I'm not sure they'd want to be married by a church that looks down on such a choice. Maybe they'd start their own church. Makes no difference to me.

    "Illegal" usually means that the state punishes you for making that choice. I believe that's the case now, so there is a big difference.

    I'm advocating that the government take a neutral stance with regard to polygamy.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    As long as the male/female ratio continues to stay so close to 1:1- and there's no reason for it to stop now- polygamy should not be legalized.

    What about the percentage of males who are not ever going to be married? Women don't give every guy an equal chance.

    Well my point was kind of that that percentage would go up if polygamy was legalized....
