So Pit, what are your moral and legal views on the concept of polygamy? Would you do it if it were legal? Should it be legal? Do you think it has any possible benefits to society?
Personally, I wouldn't do it, but I see no reason why it should be illegal if all parties give their consent.

I think if it was legal there'd be a new master race of gold diggers getting married to anything that moves. It's probably a good idea to keep it illegal.

Edit: also this

Do not want.


Should it remain illegal? I say yes.

Would i participate if it was legal? No. One woman is all I could handle being married to.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

In all seriousness, I don't understand how people can participate in polygamy, but whatever floats their boat.

I think it should be legal, and I'd do it providing I have two wives not husband-husband-wife like a devil's marriage.

I've seen no reason for it's illegal status, but I don't condone it or participate in it so idgaf really.
#8
the reason for its illegal status beyond social stigma, it is that the descendants off polygamous marriages were found to be more prone to diseases and birth defects while many women and men were fertile. Further studies found that polygamous marriages resulted in a smaller gene pool (kinda surprised me) which led to these problems as inbreeding occurs in the population has many people now share a common ancestor that is not diluted
#9
I never really considered in-breeding in polygamy, I suppose that makes sense. Also, men aren't the only ones allowed to have more than one partner, so that doesn't entirely take away all the options, although it seems as though almost all women are against the concept of having more than one husband.

We already have polygyny, its called lying about your wife.

We already have polyandry, its called gang rape.

I don't necessarily agree with it, however I don't believe you should be able to stop any number of people from entering into a contract like marriage with each other if they are all consenting adults.

Of course, I think it would have to be equal to both sexes and sexual orientations. A man with a lot of wives is only okay if there's also a woman with a lot of husbands, man with a lot of husbands etc.
#15
It should be legal, and I would do it.

If all parties consent, and there is no harm to anyone, it shouldnt be illegal.

#17
If people want to do it, and as long as everyone involved consents, I don't see any reason why it should be illegal.

A big problem with polygamy (in the USA) is that it creates a lot of tax/benefit issues. If you made marriage a non-legal contract then I'd be ok with polygamy being legal.

If you want to be with as many women as possible then don't get married. If you only want to be with one woman then get married. It's that simple.

I'd only support it if everyone involved was aware of all the marriages.
I didn't know about inbreeding in polygamy, so that might change my position.
#25
Don't see why not. I remember my philosophy professor from way back in freshman year telling us about his cabin in Utah, and how some of his neighbors were from a fringe Mormon offshoot that still secretly practiced polygamy. Like irl Big Love.

Talk about something that would be more trouble than it was worth.
#28
I don't have any desire to partake in it, but I don't see why it should be illegal.


If consenting adults decide they want to do it, then I don't see the problem.
