I find it interesting that in a question about polygamy, which is marriage with multiple partners, so many people assumed that not only did it mean polygyny, it meant the very rigid, Bible based polygyny that is only practiced by an outlawed fringe group of a minor branch of Christianity. All of the complaints and judgments made about "polygamy" in that question are pointless if you consider polyandry.
So what's the deal? Is it really polygamy people have an issue with, or is it really the FLDS church?

I haven't seen the question you are referring to so I will have to just give my opinion on polygamy in general. Personally, I don't have a problem with the LDS (not sure what the F is for there), in fact I see that much of their faith is focused on family and I appreciate that. As for polygamy, it's not for me but I don't think less of those who do practice it. I think I'm too much of a jealous and private person to be able to share my husband and my life with another woman.

Polyandry is a marriage with one woman and more than one man. Nobody has addressed this yet.
I disagree with both polygamy and polyandry. It is just wrong.
Monagamy is more mature and responsible. No way would I want to be one of many wives and I would not want more than one man. ANIMALS are more often monogamous:
