Egalitarian polygamy: Polygamy within "peer marriages" in which all spouses have equal power. Decisions are made by mutual consent. Child nurturing, discipline, other parenting tasks and all other jobs are distributed among the spouses by consensus.

Isn't this a normal marriage? In my house all tasks are split up between my husband and I......I don't get the name unless there's more to the description.

it si anormal marriage in monogamy but not always in polyagmy .Alot of polygamists have a husband is king mindset and we dont .We are all equals in everything.

Oh my, I'm a square and small minded.  This is just strange to me.  Thanks for sharing a little and welcome to the group. 

Blessings!

That is SO cool! I've never met a polygamist before...How do you share nights? like one night on, one night off?

I'm going to ask an ignorant question, sorry, but do you live in Utah?

Have you ever seen the show big love? if so does it depict real life polygamy in any way? I love that show and I'm completely hooked.
