Polygamy it when person has two or more legal partners (wives or husbands). Nowadays polygamy is prohibited almost in all countries. Except: Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, The Gambia, India and Indonesia . But to my mind, it is much better to legalize polygamy, because it can bring a lot of benefits and advantages. So let`s debate and I will try to prove it.

I do not agree with you. Polygamy should not be legalized, and there are many reasons of it.
First of all, it is amoral, because how can you imagine family which consist of one father and two or even more mothers ( or one mother and several fathers). What would be with the psychology of children who are growing up in such kind of family. Peers will laugh at them and embarrass, especially in such society, where teens and children are very unfriendly.
Secondly, it is evidence that person who has several partners, loves one of them more than another. So just imagine what would be in such family. There will be many quarrels and disagreements, because of it. And each member of this family will suffer.

"Peers will laugh at them and embarrass"
If polygamy is legalized, people will have different attitude on it. It will be normal.
So It should be legalized because:
Firstly, according to the statistics, in many countries there are much more women than men. Due to there are many unmarried women. I think that each woman deserves to have a family and be happy. But the number of men and women is not equal. So in such cases it becomes impossible. But polygamy can solve this problem. If it is legalized many women will have opportunity to have a happy family.
Secondly, there will be less divorces and children will not suffer. Everyone knows that the most popular reason of divorce it treasons of husbands. They may fall in love with other women. In such cases there will be no needs to divorce. The lover just can be the second wife. And everyone is happy, children have a father and wife has a husband.
To conclude, I would like to say that, if someone wants to be the second wife or husband, why not? Nobody will force you if you do not want.

Do you know that one of the global problems is overpopulation? Day by day amount of people is rising. Do not forget that, in families where polygamy will be more children. So number of people will rise for several times faster. Can you imagine what will be after 50-100 years after legalization of polygamy? It may lead to the SERIOUSE problems with ecology and hunger. Because it will not possible to provide with food so many people.
So to sum up, polygamy should not be legalized, because it will disturb the balance. The population growth will be too high, the society will be amoral and so valuable word "Family" will worth nothing.

Reasons for voting decision: Although this debate was weak, I beleive that Con made better points. The whole overpopulation got me. In the future, these two need to cite resources - I was left wondering if their facts were really true. If they are, however, than Con takes this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct, spelling, and grammar were tied. No one used external sources. Arguments on both sides were weak. Con relied too heavily on speculation, and both sides made false statements.
