I think it's fine. If you can love both your parents, and all your friends, why can't you love more than one person romantically? I don't know if I would actually get involved in it, though. I guess it's a possibility.

As long as the people involved are okay with it, I don't really care. I DO care when a 40 year old guy marries a teenager and abuses her or something.
There are a lot of cases with polygamous men abusing their wives. Or maybe that's just the media?

Polygamy is acceptable, and is a norm in other societies.

What is wrong with polygamy is that if the parties involved do not permit it.

..and if a polygamous man cannot support his wives physical, emotional and financial needs..

i find the whole concept disgusting .

these huge families ex . 1 husband, 10 wives, 60 kids, in one home . is beyond words .

these people are forcing their ideals and morals into their kids, forcing these women to tolerate this way of life .

and not only that, they are taking advantage of government help, welfare benefits, food stamps, WIC, and medicaid . the only reason they are able to live this way of life is by taking advantage of the gov .

"The plight of women and children growing up in a polygamous patriarchal system that Moore-Emmett described defiles intelligent reasoning. Often succumbing to the power of "groupthink" where brainwashing results in total acceptance of the prevailing belief system, women learn to endure physical abuse, poverty, and emotional pain of seeing their husbands have sex with other women. Groupthink is similar to Jim Jones's brainwashing where his followers drank the poisoned Kool-Aid in 1978."

That's disgusting.
It's like basically cheating on your wife, except you have to tolerate it and you know and live with the other woman. It'd be hard not to get angry.
Also, it's a bit disturbing knowing that your husband is doing something with someone else and you're just like sitting there.
What will you tell your kids?
And doesn't the relation between the wives get awkward and stressed? Like, jealously will pent up if the husband prefers his 3rd wife over the others. Plus, what are the other wives to you, in terms of family relatives. You aren't related, but in a way you are. Sisters? Sister-in-law? Not really...

What do you think about having more than one partner? no you wouldnt know where he has been
Do you think such relationships can work? no as a female i am selfish i like my man to remain my man only
Would you consider it? never
What do you think it would be like having 2 or more wives/husbands? confusing and there has ot be trust between those three. so does it also encourage bisexuality?

I don't see why it's such a problem if the people in it are a-okay, unless they use it in a bad way...

Just because we think it's "disgusting" doesn't mean it is. We should stop being full of ourselves.

Well you sleep 8 hours a day, eat/shit/piss takes you 2(?) hours, work probably takes you 8-12 hours (10 on average), travelling to and fro takes you 1-2 hours(1.5 for average), so your free time is 2.5 hours/day.

If you have for than 1 spouse, your time has to be divided between them to keep them happy (unless you think they don't deserve to be happy since as long as you're happy its fine)
1 spouse = 2 hours 30 min
2 spouses =1 hour 15 min
3 spouses = 50 minutes

Then you have to spend time with your children, your friends, your hobbies, your errands, etc
