Right, as in a man can get filthily rich after he's in a polygamous arrangement.

Well as long as no one objects to polyandry as well and no one is forced into these marriages. Like All Hail Odin I say "Whatever floats all participants' boats"

If our minds were purely scientific and calculated, polygamy is theoretically the best form of romance. Then again, if our minds were purely scientific and calculated, polygamy wouldn't exist since the idea of marriage would seem moot. The only possible barrier to this lifestyle would be the abundance of STDs.

I wanted to add one thing. For all the people who think the wives will be in one bed--what do you think polygyny is? Every wife gets her rights and privacy. It's not a zoo.

I'm sure jealousy among spouses has nothing to do with the physical boundary sat in place.[/sarcasm]

You first, and then we'll see how compatible you are at sharing an intimate relationship with other spouses, who are all competing for social status in a marriage.

"Rights" are listed and are in context of the specific "law". I should've stated that I was referring to Islamic laws. I dunno the way polygamy laws are in other cultures. Jealousy is inevitable in any.

And nice way of putting it on me. I'm not saying I'd like to be in a polygynous relationship or that I'd be awesome at handling it. So long as the rights of people are looked after according to God's Law then I'm fine with polygyny. If I end up in such a relationship, I'll try to make the best of it. Also, polygyny is not really easy for the man. It takes a great man to work in such a complex situation properly.

And insofar, we heard none of those men ever represent himself in a society that practice polygamy. Because men are "missing" among the demographic. While invoking God's laws is only an outward display of self-righteousness by the fundamentalist Mormon community of Bountiful, BC. How very ethnocentric of them.

Polygamy is perfect. If one wife has a headache, another is sure to not be suffering the same affliction.

For the wives can have jobs of their own.
