    I don't really approve of polygamy in the way in is currently practiced, but the practice itself doesn't bother me in theory. If the legal hurdles could be worked out, I wouldn't have a problem with the legalization of such relationships.

    Re: Polygamy: Why not?

    I dont think Polygamy is right from a moral perspective, and the legalities behind multiple marriages is just too complicated. Its immorality is what is damaging to society. And before you reply to this, yes it is the duty of the government to keep moral order.

    How about the Americans spend a bit more time enhancing the rights of the gay minority and their inability to marry rather than moan about how unfair it is straight people cant have multiple marriages. Geez, so selfish.

    Once again, what's the divorce rate in this great nation, and yours...And how does that tie in with morality?

    What the hell difference does it make what the divorce rate is? Is it affecting the wellbeing of indivisual citizens, it is depriving people of food, is it worsening the economic conditions of Africa? No, its just a figure.

    A man should dedicate his life to the relationship and wellbeing of his loved one. Multiple relationships and love affairs for men whilst allowing the woman to sit on the corner is sexist and unequal. And if the woman is allowed to do it, well, here comes the jelously and the endless squabbles of testosterone fuelled American dudes and the endless legal complications behind it.

    First you said divorce was damaging to society, now you say monogamy is damaging to society (but don't say how). You forgot terrorism. Terrorism is damaging to society, too! I still can't see why you believe any of this is relevant to polygamy.

    Well just compare the percentage of polygamist relationships that go awry and the number of monogamous relationships that go ass up. Just giving you another point to view this from. Don't get uppity with me, Euro.

    Actually yeah. Some people never quite recover from broken families.

    Some monogamous families and more divorced families make broken homes, and **** can go downhill very fast.

    Bringing Africa into the equation? Well don't ask. Africa is your problem, Europe.

    So we can only love one person? or just one at a time? I find that hard to believe.

    Chicks do it to. Or are we only debating the arguments that can be labeled misogyny here?

    Technically, Women can, and they do.

    Nice sweeping generalizations of American dudes. It's not dudes that throw **** out on the street when their girl cheats on them, or burns their ****, or keys their car. Most of the time we repay them in kind...and bang their sister.

    I agree - somebody lacks probability skills.

    Question of the day:

    Is the probability of divorce higher in men in multiple relationships or single relationships?
