What do i think of it, is completely wrong. My great grandfather from my Father side had Around 5~7 wives...I don't know much detailed in to that, but I still think its completely wrong. And I'm against it...Normally its the men that have "more than one wive(s)" in the old times it was allowed, in a sense back then women was like an item...>_< Having more than one wife just shows your wealth and power...and there may be favoritism between each wive(s) it'll be completely unfair to some...and it goes against your loyalty to your wife its almost like people are "free" to cheat on their soul mates...

Do you think such relationships can work?


I highly doubt this kind of thing will be able to work out. Though its not impossible for a relationship like that to work...Just lack of freedom and what not for a side... and there will be jealousy involved so on so on.

Would you consider it?


No, I wouldn't consider it. Its stupid in my opinion. Though because I'm Canadian, Canada is considering for it to be allowed by law the argument people have on this topic is...

"Since Canada allowed homosexual marriage, they twisted the define of marriage, so therefore why can't polygamy be allowed?"

but personally, i'm "for" homosexual marriages, but completely against polygamy marriages.

What do you think it would be like having 2 or more wives/husbands?


If a person is allowed having more than one husband/wife...it also mean their husband/wife is also allowed to have other mates..>_< it'll be completely confusing...the relationship will be too messed up to be even considered...Those people that have the title of "husband & wife" with each other may just simply be sex "users" and have barely a friend ship with each other because they're abusing this new system "a marriage that doesn't require love"


bluxberry wrote:
Also what are the positive/negative points in such relationships?


Well, I guess the positive is that people are allowed to have more than one mate...o_o; and maybe higher rate of birth for people in countries that needs children.

but negative can be the abusing of this new system of marriage/relationship, and maybe they wouldn't know whose the child's parent in some cases ._. but anyhow, jealousy and all those mix things are going to be involved....not a good idea.

bottom line, i'm completely against this kind of system of marriage

i have to agree. i mean of course the 2 on 1 its a lot of guys' fantasy. but for marriage? i cant see how the two of the same sex can be okay with each other be married to the same person. im not a jealous guy at all, and even i would have serious issues with it.

Of course it should be legal. Just because the relationships may have problems and may not always work out doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed. If you apply that logic to our current marriage system with incredible divorce rates, you should see how that argument is incredibly weak. Polygamy could work, maybe not for all or even the majority, but for some. And, if people have the choice to be in such a relationship or not, there's no harm done.

I personally wouldn't do it. I don't like receiving only part of the attention and I don't like having to divide my attention.

uh, no i don't agree with having more than 1 partner. Your supposed to have ONE soulmate, and one only, you may fall in love with more then one person in life, and your more than likely to fall out of love with all of them except one

Living in the US most of the response i get to polygamy is negative, personally however i don't see anything wrong with it. Polygamy doesn't seem so much as something wrong as difficult. I would completely be fine with polygamy assuming that there were two women which i loved equally (if that is possible). I believe such relationships CAN work however they probably will fail more often than now, nevertheless it is not certain. Would i consider it? Given the circumstances absolutely. Being single and never married i have no idea what it would be like living with even one wife let alone two, However i can't imagine it as so much different, probably just another person in the house/bed/car. Pros/cons: Well the cons would be the criticism from society and issues dealing with children and whatnot, however on the pro side (Me) the man would have 2 wives and both of them (in love with me because they are my wives) would get to be with the spouse. When it all boils down: POLYGAMY FTW

I'm not against it. My grandma's sister's son is married to two wives, and the families get along with each other. Plus, my religion permits it, but under certain rules that are hard to full fill. I personally can't see myself in that type of relationship.
There are more women than man in the world, so not everyone is going to find that 'one true love'... and I don't think a wife can have multiple husbands because then you won't be able to know who the father of the child is (though having a few bishies to myself sounds delightful).

Btw people, this is the extended discussion.

I dont know I mean anything is possible.
All I can realy say is people can barely handle being married to one person
and ppl are constantly getting divorces.
Well it's up to that person.

I guess it can work

I don't like to share my man and to me, I think it is more of a hassle trying to be with more than one person and take care of them along with any children that comes along the way.

I would say it would be a big fat headache. What girl or guy in their right mind want to share their significant other. It may be fine one day and the next, it's total chaos. Thanks, but no thanks.

polygamy is awesome i think ,but since women want to feel special rather than being the actual tools they are it isn't allowed

I think well, whatever, but me myself will be satisfied with one husband - and I'd better be his only wife.

I would totally leave if he was to ever marry another person...just because of the fact that I would never marry another man while I'm married already

I think that it's ironic that, culturally, sleeping around with multiple partners before marriage without commitment to those partners is accepted, but once someone commits to a partner it is unacceptable for them to commit to any other. There seems to be some kind of prevailing belief that total love of an individual diminishes as it is shared to more people. I view this as a false belief; people can completely love more that one person; for example, someone could completely love their spouse and completely love their children, or parents, or siblings, or friends or whomever. Personally I don't have a problem with polygamy so long as all parties are adequately taken care of (not necessarily equal because different people have different needs).

it's cool, as long as im the only one who gets more partners, i share my wives with none, those who try to take them may burn in the firey pits of hell
