Today on Anderson Cooper they were discussing polygamy. They had 4 people who grew up FLDS, and we're raised in Polygamist families. They also interviewed the cast of Sister Wives.

What are your thoughts on polygamy? Should it be illegal?

I agree. Except for the flds but there was a lot of abuse going on there. In the case of sister wives I think it should be legal. As consenting adults they should be able to be happy with that lifestyle. Maybe they could make it so that all parties have to sign the marriage certificate (like all the wives and the husband) so the husband can't just marry whoever they want without their previous wife(wives) knowledge.

Quoting aidenmomplus4:

I think it should be legal, it's not anyone business what people choice to do with their free will. If they are being forced then I don't agree but if it's adults choosing to live this way and it make them happy and they aren't harming anyone. Then the government should stay out of their business, I think the current law was made so that men or women could not take advantage of marrying one wife and then marrying another one without their knowledge so if the first wife is saying yes my husband can have another wife and I'm ok with then we should be telling them what is right or wrong.

I totally agree. I love the Brown family, they fascinate me!

Quoting .Pagan.:

i don't have an issue with it. as long as everyone is a legal adult and can consent to it 9not forced) then whatever.

If it is consentual with adults, I don't feel it is my place to judge.
