Why is polygamy illegal?

I've wondered this for awhile. How does it negatively affect society? Divorce has minimal effect on tax dollars, therefore it's no body's business if someone wants to marry more than one person at a time.

  • The same reason Gays can't get married I suppose.. There is no good reason besides close minded people.

  • I'm with you 100%. I don't understand how in a free country we make things like polygamy, homosexual marriage and prostitution illegal. It's stupid.

  • I am not sure that is a good question...I know that historically there was alot of polygamy in other countrys and I am really not sure when that all changed.

  • Well, in a lot of polygamist religions, men choose brides who are children! That sure as hell should be illegal but Idk why otherwise.
