    It's great how the lawmakers and press suck up to people like Hugh the Playboy but frown upon other folk who also believe it is OK to have more than just one woman.

    I met a man in Montana who had 3 wives and 11 children. He lived on a million acre farm with his family, and all were very good people.

    I thought, man, what a life he has - comes into town now and then, fills up the vehicle with groceries and goods, then heads home for the night with his family.

    Three wives - plain lookingly dressed, but healthy, nice bodied and cute in their own way - I certainly would have fun with them.

    I felt, good luck to him for being able to enjoy that, no more than I have felt for the same for folks like Hugh the Playboy - good luck to them.

    I say if you can afford them, and are willing to handle them properly, and they're willing to be with you, what's the harm?

    He actually would own about 1/94th of Montana.

    Hatuey,

    He lives on and farms a wheat farm. I am not truly sure if he owns it. But my best guess is he does.

    I've seen wheat field after wheat field for as far as the eyes can see in Montana, but it's not the only thing in Montana.

    Montana does have few people but it has millions of acres of wheat fields - spring and winter wheat - great soil and climate for wheat - they grow so much wheat they help to feed the world as well as us.

    He was a big, strong guy. I imagine he works hard for what he gets and brings to the world.

    EpicDude86,

    Montana is big, and beautiful. I've been to Glacier National Park and seen the glaciers and the wildlife there. I remember a couple got mauled to death by a grizzly close to an area where I stayed because they did not obey the rules. They shouldn't have been in that area and she should have not been in the park while she had her menstral cycle. They smell it miles away if they are upwind of it.

    They found him ripped to death in their tent and her half eaten body a mile and a half away along a stream.

    They hunted the bear and shot him down. They opened him up and confirmed that they shot the right bear.

    I have to admit though, I too did not obey a park rule. Firearms are not allowed in the park and I had my pistol with me the whole time.

    Up against a 10' grizzly one must have an equalizer. And that park ranger with his pistol in HIS hipholster can.................. that rule.

    Yeah, I want to visit. Montana looks awesome. I was merely doing the math to figure out that, if he did in fact own a million acres, he would own approximately 1/94th of the State of Montana. not a bad cut, since the Federal Government 'owns' and maintains something like 37 million acres of parks and preserves.

    That's where I stand on it as well. As long as all surviving spouses consent to the marriage, folks ought to be allowed to take more than one husband or wife.

    Word you're looking for there is "polygyny." "Polygamy" is the accepted gender-neutral term; it's only assumed to be synonymous with "polygyny" because the majority of human societies have been polygynous, and the majority of the remainder have been monogamous. Polyandry is astoundingly rare.

    Not so different from custody and property issues in divorces between monogamous couples.

    Kill more young men before they breed. It's good for society in a variety of ways.

    The way I see it, if it is between consenting adults, and nobody else's rights are being violated, then it is their business and nobody else's.
