Is it not the same thing?
Why does what they do in their home and bedroom bother anyone else?

I don't have a problem with polygamy or polyandry for that matter. As long as all involved are consenting adults, able to make rational decisions, people should be able to marry whom ever they want. Besides this archaic idea of One man, One woman is very culture specific, other definitions a marriage exist around the world, many very successful in their societies.

I don't bash. It looks like a miserable way to live, but they are consenting adults and should be able to do what they want as long as it doesn't violate anyone else's rights. I believe one of the issues with polygamy is that many times the subsequent wives can't support themselves and if the husband can't support them then they use PA and keep growing their families on the taxpayer's dime. That's the only issue I have with polygamy and that's not to say that this is the case with every polygamist family. They just don't seem very happy when you interview them. there is a lot of drama and someone is always crying. I don't believe the subsequent marriages in that relationship are anything by holy unions or whatever they call it. It's not a legal marriage.
