Round 1 Acceptance
Round 2 Argument
Round 3 Closing

It is in my opinion that any number of individuals whom are in love should have the right to marry as two individuals or multiple individuals. There should be no limitations as to how many individuals are allowed to join in matrimony.

Define:
Polygamy noun 1.the practice or custom of having more than one wife or husband at the same time.

This is to say any combination i.e. 2 male 3 female; 3 female 2 male; not limited to 1 male with multiple females or 1 female with multiple males.

Welcome to the debate.

When we look at matters of love and affairs we have little knowledge on why or how people choose their significant others. In today's society many marriages end in divorce for a multitude of reasons financial, sexual impotency, change in life style or even "falling out of love". There is also the rise of an Internet service, Ashley Madison, which caters to those seeming a marital affair.

With marriage being a very difficult and faulty combination of two individuals in society I do not see the issue in allowing any and all who would want to strive to a better life in love.

Financially having multiple employed individuals in a single household would be beneficial not only economically but also for the raising and care of the children. Sexual Impotency would no longer be more of a heavy burden upon those involved having many partners to engage and reproduce with. When looking at reproduction the offspring would have multiple siblings without one parent birthing them all. This could be a beneficial system not just for the individuals but also the children.

Thank you and may the best arguments win.

It seems my opponent has forfeited the second round/argument phase. I do hope they take the opportunity to make a case in the third round.

As my conclusion I would like to reiterate my stance on this topic. I think it is financially and emotionally potential for those who would desire to have multiple partners in their marriage. The concept of love should not be bound by the state. I look forward to the arguments against my case if they are to be presented.

Thank you and may the best arguments win.

Frankly while I'm not a supporter of same sex marriages, the reality is that once the Supreme Court said that marriage was NOT just between a man and a woman but between consenting adults then polygamy has to be made legal.
