Definition:polygamy-marriage in which a spouse of either sex may have more than one mate at the same time

I believe that polygamy should be legalized because the government should have no right to tell consenting adults who they can and cannot love. Their is no harm in it and it harms no one. Allowing polygamy also give more religious freedom to those who's religion says it's ok.

The awareness of a widely accepted practice of polygamy, has been rejected by many governments and religions as unacceptable. In America, as in many other countries, polygamy is against the law.It surely brings a whole new legal meaning to, "what a tangled web we weave." Polygamy is viewed with suspicion and wholehearted disapproval in all but a few countries where it is sustained by a political system that participates in the ritual itself.
Polygamy is quickly becoming a global challenge, the number of children that are anticipated to be their legacy. World population has long been a topic of conversation, however it is escalating into a critical issue for real people in many different geographical locations. It is especially significant with the most recent scarcity of rice and wheat. Global warming has affected rice crops, and food crops turned to fuel have diminished availability of wheat products. Food hoarding and rioting of hungry people have begun. Water sources have been affected by the climate changes due to global warming as well. Polygamy and the notion of huge families is not an attractive fit with the reality.
In some places where Polygamy is recognized, poverty and desperateness haunt their everyday existence. In others where the plural marriages are part of the elite, there are crises of power sharing.
