So many flags in this thread.

On-Topic, yes, it should be legal, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

@dernman: Because that mostly leads to love triangle, not marriage. I live in a Muslim country where polygamy is pretty common and that rarely happens.

The older wife always gets neglected, it almost feels like she becomes a freaking slave not wife anymore. Remember, this was the woman that this male supposedly pledged to.

Also, the idea of woman hitting up a married man is kinda pathetic to me. There are a lot of single male, damn... whores.

Thank you!

We live in a society where anything goes these days, the institution of marriage was always suppose to be between one man and woman. And yes polygamy is anti woman.

Please note that polygamy means more then one spouse of either gender...

Tell me how an all male polygamy unit, an all female polygamy unit is anti female, if it's one woman two guys if it'a one guy and two bi woman. Even if it's one guy two straight woman doesn't mean it has to be anti female.

Edit: khael I'll respond to your comment later if I feel like jumping back into it again later or if you're not banned for when things got heated with that other user earlier..

@khael: The negative side of polygamy reminds me of Jacob and his two wives, and the problems that came from that. Rachel being the one who Jacob was suppose to marry, and being tricked into marrying Leah. Rachel became sour when she couldn't bare children for Jacob.

@dernman: Those that you have described would be detrimental to society and family. If we are talking about man with many wives, which would be more likely, then it is anti woman, because what's stopping the older man from finding a much younger wife when his wife gets too old? Polygamy is riddled with abuse. Same could be said about same sex polygamy.

@thekillerklok:Males are the ones who would speak polygamy more than woman.

I don't think its necessary.

Most countries already have divorce so people, regardless of gender, can marry as many times as they want.

@thekillerklok:Males are the ones who would speak polygamy more than woman.

What's stopping them? First what makes you think a man can just add anyone to the marriage without the wife's permission? A true equal polygamy marriage alike any duo one is equality and all have a say. The wife would have to not only want another one in but that particular one in. THat doesn't even address all the other versions of I stated besides strait man woman or two woman one man. You're have a very narrow view of what polygamy is. This isn't the 1920. Woman have a say in what goes on unless you're in a country where they don't which again isn't polygamy's fault but that cultures.

Again I'm not in favor of it nor would i like it if it became legal but there just isn't a good reason for it not to be. At least not one posted here or I've ever seen.

@dernman: Well if you respect the institution of marriage you would know it is between one man and one woman and God, that is the golden standard for thousands of years. That is what family is. To change the meaning of family and marriage will not only hurt children, but the nation too.

Maybe you don't care what people do in their personal lives, and neither do I, but when people try to redefine marriage and family, that effects the nation. I don't like that. Our nation was built on Judeo-Christian values, and we are losing what used to make us a great nation.

I don't if you have a girlfriend, wife or a significant other, but could you really see yourself having to deal with another woman, they are psycho!

Not everybody believes in your version of what institute of marriage is. Not even those who are believers all believe that. You can't say it's disrespectful if their commitment is true.

That is what family is. To change the meaning of family and marriage will not only hurt children, but the nation too.

Again not all people agree what family is. Hell if one parent dies or was never married does that make the rest less of a family? No

Maybe you don't care what people do in their personal lives, and neither do I, but when people try to redefine marriage and family, that effects the nation. I don't like that. Our nation was built on Judeo-Christian values, and we are losing what used to make us a great nation.

Though I've become agnostic I have mad respect but you need to realize not all people believe in Judo-Christianism. Hell not all Christians even believe or interpret it the same way.

Unless you can give me reasons that pertain to more that just Judeo-Christians then it holds no water to those who don't prescribe to that.

But I don't think things would be much worse with Islam. Both religions advocate for horrible things. It's just that a lot more Muslims actual practice the things in their book, while most christians only do what's convenient for their social structure.

Funny enough, The US is the least Christian, Christian country. It was founded by Christians, with an anti-christian bill of rights, which directly contradicts the 10 commandments.

But our country has gradually been getting better, as our country becomes progressively less Christian. Hmm look at that.

1. No

2. They are adjusting with the times. Which is good. However it's directly against the book that they read from. So basically, the anti-christian, Christians are the 'good' ones. The ones who actually follow the religion are the 'bad' ones.

You're right it is incredibly accurate concerning you. Though you calling me a hypocrite implies an admission to all those things I accused you of. Damn you make this so fracking easy.

The difference here and you don't get is I don't have a problem with you not believing in god or religion. Why would I? I don't know if there is one. So that's a fail on your accusation. I'm not surprised it's easier for you want to believe that to sooth your bruised ego. Is it a throbbing pain or does it just stinging?

The one here who's said they have intolerance for other opinions here is you. Me on the other had have just addressed what you claimed, not as opinion but "facts" by saying any claim of fact needs to be proven. Which you still haven't done by the way. Even that was only after you refused and doubled down.

You're just mad now because you got called out on it especially when I stopped being nice and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

It worked. Cheers

Cheers because it worked for me. It helped in proving my point and has the added bonus of being fun when you do all the work for me. It's like you're trolling yourself. haha

OK I'm done. I'll have pity on you. Say whatever you want to try and make yourself feel better it doesn't matter anymore. The damage to you has already been done. There is no coming back from it. lol

I think you misunderstood my points or I worded it wrongly. I'll have to look back.

I do know I said some believe he was based on a real man. To elaborate with what I didn't say was and if I remember correctly one of the beliefs was he was just some local, normal, nice, fat man with a beard who gave wooden carved toys to the local village children in the winter. They nicknamed him Saint Nick. (not a real saint just a nick name). Like most myths it grew out from a kernel of truth to something fantastical.

If you're really just asking if I believe the myth is real then the answer is no.

Great now I'm only going to get a lump of coal next year.

Man, I'd love to have a couple or three husbands.

btw, for people taking up for the mormons and similar, have you watched the Escaping from Polygamy series? Those kids and wives are sooooooooo screwed up. So much neglect and abuse and it is all sanctioned by their version of god. It's not that different from David Koresh did back in '92. All his sweet little brides of underage girls. So precious, right?

And some of them? They have to get state support to get food for their families. You learn about this as well, but I live in an area that has a signify population. Although there aren't multiple wives, there definitely isn't birth control being used. They all for the most part seem to work hard, which is a great positive, and they seem to be supportive of another overall, but clothing, food, jobs, and decent housing seems to be an issue for more than one or two of them - not all for sure.

If EVERYONE was happy with the relationship, then not have more than two people married. There are people who are happy in three person marriages, even those where it is two man with one woman. It goes both ways, and both ways should be respected.

Religious people do not have the end all be all say about marriage, and marriages existed before Judaism did, meaning that it existed before Jesus and ....etc etc etc. good nigth all.

@dernman: Because that mostly leads to love triangle, not marriage. I live in a Muslim country where polygamy is pretty common and that rarely happens.

The older wife always gets neglected, it almost feels like she becomes a freaking slave not wife anymore. Remember, this was the woman that this male supposedly pledged to.

Also, the idea of woman hitting up a married man is kinda pathetic to me. There are a lot of single male, damn... whores.

Thank you!

We live in a society where anything goes these days, the institution of marriage was always suppose to be between one man and woman. And yes polygamy is anti woman.

misogynistic and unnecessary naming for women. what about the men? the exact same thing can be said of males. further proof of hypocrisy from you. both of you, but ccraft, how can you agree to a woman being a "whore" and yet discuss stuff that is anti-woman? you confirm a misogynistic term for women with one hand and then confirm that an age old OT custom is misogynistic with the other.

i'm curious why you would spurn what is in the OT and sanctioned by the god of the OT? maybe here is where you can teach me something. ???

Maybe you don't care what people do in their personal lives, and neither do I, but when people try to redefine marriage and family, that effects the nation. I don't like that. Our nation was built on Judeo-Christian values, and we are losing what used to make us a great nation.

Funny enough, The US is the least Christian, Christian country. It was founded by Christians, with an anti-christian bill of rights, which directly contradicts the 10 commandments.

But our country has gradually been getting better, as our country becomes progressively less Christian. Hmm look at that.

How is the Bill of Rights anti-xian?
