    Not if you also include polygany in the mix. If men can have multiple wives and women can have multiple husbands, or you include group marriage with both men and women, then it should even out.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    The way the poll question was written I have to click "I couldn't care less" option.

    I would not "support" Polygamy. I am against the government banning polygamy.

    If the question was "Do you have a problem with the Federal government banning Polygamy" the answer is a definite "yes".

    If the question is, "Are you against Polygamy being banned by your state" the answer is "Yes".

    If the question is "Are you against Polygamy being banned by any state" the answer is "Not unless it is my state."


    Same is true about Gay marriage, for me. I would prefer it is the federal government and the state governments stayed the **** out of business that doesn't concern the government.

    You don't honestly believe that there are as many women who would want multiple husbands as there are men who would want multiple wives, do you?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    or, for that matter, as many men who would be willing to share a woman as there are women who would be willing to share a man.

    If someone wants multiple wives/husbands... erm... go for it? I support assisted suicide so I suppose I would have to support it in all forms right?

    Personally, I think anyone who wants more than one man or woman is an idiot, but we're not talking about what we think, but in the reality. People, under polygamous relationships, could have things both ways.

    We didn't let Utah into the Republic till it had done away with polygamy. In the end, I guess I don't really care one way or the other on this. At the base, I think if people want to engage in polygamy then they can. In practice it doesn't seem to work out so well all the time. It's usually the man whom takes on multiple wives and sometimes it seems to be more of a master/servant sort of thing. Also, you get it in the sects wherein children are indoctrinated from a young age to believe this is how it has to be and thus they then accept abusive or emotionally empty polygamist relationships.

    If done by the free will of people involved, then whatever. But if set up to indoctrinate into the system, it can easily be abused. Plus, I think on this one there is actual study showing that 2 is better than more. You'd also have to deal with people hitting on your wife/husband. Cause monogamy wouldn't necessarily be the standard.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    The children are the only concern in these arrangements. Should children have 3 or 4 legal parents?

    The question that you should always ask yourself, and post your answer to along with the original question: why not? One is good, two is better, what's wrong with three or four or ten?
