So we've been talking about gay marriage a lot a lot a lot.
But you know what? Polygamy bothers me. I can't imagine sharing my husband.
(to be fair he said men that would do that are just selfish, so even if it was legal, I should feel secure.)
Do you think if they legalized it, it would have any effect on your marriage, and how do you feel about it in general?
Do you feel like it's right? (it does have Biblical basis, kind of)
Will you watch the TLC reality show?
Do you think a man should be able to take as many wives as he wants, and how would it affect taxes?

I am all for whatever consenting adults want to do, but with polygamy I think it would get too complicated in more ways than one. A lot of the laws would have to be changed to accomodate this and I find if it is hard to make it with a partner, can you imagine the turmoil with more?

I don't have a problem with consenting adults having whatever type of relationship they choose. As long as everyone is on board. I have a problem with child brides, or those that are related in some way marrying.
I think it it became legal, it would be easier to spot fraud. Some of these women purposely use public assistance when it isn't necessary. If you are going to marry a harem, be prepared to feed and clothe them, just like everyone else is expected to (not speaking of issues beyond a family's control).
Personally speaking, it's not for me. I don't like the idea of sharing a husband.

Not for me, I'll cut a _itch
But if thats what others want, I don't care, be happy
The main issue I have with it now are there are many YOUNG women are being lured in and not being treated well

TLC has a thing for big families ! lol

As long as they made it legal for multiple husbands not just multiple wives. Honestly I think it would be a good thing because if it was legalized it would be regulated. Think about how many of those 14 yr old girls could have been saved sooner if the polygamous community did not have to hide.
