    Anyways, like I said, if the legislators are too stupid to figure solutions to the legal problems of polygamy, they should be replaced with smarter legislators.

    For some reason, its really not necessary to waste the time and effort to specify that the debate over polygamy is a discussion of the marriage laws.

    Really, it's not.

    So.....you're saying a guy shouldn't have more than one main squeeze so long as there's barely enough squeezes to go around?

    Feeling left out?

    Actually, I would say there is far and away more historical precedent for polygamy (which has been commonplace in many cultures during many periods of history), than for gay marriage (extremely rare even in cultures that were accepting of homosexual behavior).

    probably because gay men are still men.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    I'm in favor of clan marriages, where there are more than one male and more than one female.

    Run it economically like a Corporation, where each member has an equal share. If a new member doesn't have the money to buy a share, they can take out a loan and pay it. When a member leaves, they pull cash out of the Corp. Each member joins for a contractually agreed amoutn of time: 1 year, 5 years, etc.. Penalties for breaking the contract. Children stay with the clan.

    Advantages: security, economic leverage, tax advantage, child care responsibility shared, support for non-economic producing activities (education, travel, research, home management), sexual variety.

    Disadvantages: clan dissolution, sexual/emotion troubles, external prejudice.

    It seems like common sense to me. Do you have proof that it isn't true?

    Seems like the Corp would make a LOT more money if you kicked all the men out and restricted your membership to young, attractive females.

    Seriously - why would a nice, young woman of child-bearing years need to "buy in" to such an arrangement when men would be falling all over themselves to get you to join them in a "contractually agreed amount of time."

    Men and their absurd fantasies!

    There is nothing absurd about having more than one wife so long as they are close to each other's age.
