  • It is a religious matter, not a state one.

    Honestly, I believe that we should legalise polygamy as it really should not be the state having to enforce religious laws (unless the religion and state are one in the same). If a man wants to take two wives, let him. It is his headache to provide for them now. Besides, they are probably going to do it if they really want to.

  • Freedom of religion

    Though polygamy in many people's eyes is wrong, it is seen as a religious way in some people's eyes. The whole center belief of polygamy is the more wives a man has the higher his rank is in heaven. That to me sounds like religion, so why is it not allowed? If that is the way a man and his several wives want to live and raise a family, there shouldn't be anyone stopping them and they shouldn't have to fear the police coming to their home and arresting them for what they believe is right.

  • If two women are in love with same man then it should be allowed

    It should be allowed.I have a friend who after many years in marriage unable to have child due to some health reasons of wife.And he does not have that much of money to go for have child using medical tech.
    Now he is suffering because of this polygamy ban rule.
    There are many other cases where a man has to marry some other women due to family pressure like caste...,then what about the girl whom he loves.

  • It should be legalized

    I say it should be legalized, because catholic or Christian religions are not the only ones that exist, the world if full of different religions, we have to be a little more opened about different ways of thinking. We opened up to homosexuals. Also being ok with something does not mean that you are doing it, just that you have no problems with it. You know a characteristic of geniuses are that they are open minded, I see why there are not a lot of geniuses in this world

  • Love is Love

    Since it's now legal to marry whoever you want, why not how many you want? Even if you personally would not be in that type of relationship, it doesn't mean you can't have respect for the people who are in such a relationship. From what i have read, polygamy is part of religion. If it's their religion, everyone must learn to accept it for what it is and treat the believers with respect. It is a shame when you think about it that these types of familes have to go into hiding and live in secret, just to live their life filled with religion. Learn respect because love is love

  • It should be legalize

    Even after marriage people think of some other person.They are ready to cheat if therir parner will not come to know about this.
    We humans are not always make for single.It is like society is trying to suppress the nature.A person can be in love with more than 2 persons at the same time.See love tringle movies.

  • Polygamy is a basic freedom

    Polygamy has been proven to empower women and men alike. The government should not meddle in the private affairs of citizens.

    Polygamy would actually decrease abuse. Isn't it easier for two people to stand up to an abuser? What about three or four people? Feel like all the good mates are taken and you have to settle for someone that's not "that" abusive?

    Allowing polygamy doesn't allow children to be married. It doesn't allow forced marriages. It does protect the rights of citizens. It provides more choice, not less.

  • Polygamy is completely wrong, because marriage should be between one man and one woman only.

    The only evidence I need to give on this matter is what it says in the Bible. Or, one could just ask the majority of people how they feel marriage should be viewed, even if they weren't from a religious background. I mean, it really isn't that hard to explain just how most see it, which is marriage equals two people, not several.

  • No, because even monogamy already causes enough problems in this country.

    People have trouble keeping one wife happy, and half of all marriages end in a messy divorce. If people were allowed to have more than one partner, this would just make the problem worse. There are already enough children and others whose lives are damaged by divorce with the rules the way they are. It does not need to be made any worse.

  • Polygamy shouldn't be legalized, because it denies the sanctity of marriage and normal Christian living.

    Polygamy, or the practice of having more than one spouse, is not a Christian way to live life. It denies the sanctity of marriage, and it is not a healthy way to live. In our culture, in America, it would be life-shattering to most people. I realize other cultures are different, and that polygamy would be viewed differently, elsewhere. But, this doesn't make the practice, itself, right.

  • Polygamy should not be legalized, because it opens too many people up to abuse.

    Polygamy is usually a way for men to abuse multiple women or young girls, like in the cases of the LDS men who were recently tried for this. I do not think that being married to multiple people is mutually beneficial to all parties involved, and can be another way to oppress and abuse people.

  • Polygamy should not be legalised

    Marriage is meant to show commitment to your ONE and ONLY love as well as it meant to bind them together. Also it could be confusing to the kid that they end up having. However if Polygamy does become legal I feel that it should only be allowed to happen if the partners know and give consent.
    And you cant say that these are the same arguments used from people who are against gay/lesbian marriage because I am all for it as if they love each other they should be together

  • I do not believe that polygamy should be legalized because I think it is immoral.

    It is my belief that polygamy is immoral and should not be legalized. Children are better off in a home with one father and one mother. I also think that polygamy demeans the status of women since no one woman in a polygamous relationship receives the affection and station in life that a woman in a traditional marriage enjoys.

  • I strongly oppose legalizing polygamy, because it completely goes against the key rules of marriage.

    I believe that a strong factor in creating a healthy long-lasting marriage is being faithful to one's partner. Trust and faithfulness are what keep couples together. Polygamy goes completely against this. It has been reported that in most polygamy-style relationships, one or more partners feel insignificant and uncomfortable with the arrangement. If a husband really loves his wife, he will be true and faithful to her, and will not need multiple partners.

  • Polygamy is harmful to the family structure and to society and should not be permitted except in cases of religious tolerance.

    It is well known by psychologists, and the community at large that polygamy is not a healthy family structure. It causes jealousy between the parties of the same sex that are sharing a life partner, causes confusion for children as to what love is, and creates a demeaning aspect for all woman in the society. Finally, men and women are created at an almost equal rate, and if polygamy was legalized and became the norm many men would be left w/out a woman to have a family with.

  • I Support Toleration of Polygamous Relationships, But Not Legalization of Polygamous Marriages

    If polygamous marriages are legalized, then how many wives would a man be able to legally take? Is a limit even necessary, or can a man marry 100+ wives if he wants to or "loves them all"? What about women? Would women be able to take more than one husband. If men can take more than one wife? What if everyone becomes married to a bunch of people who are married to a bunch of other people, who are also married to everyone else? In such cases, how would the government give benefits/privileges? I understand people should be free to choose how to live for themselves; I consider myself fairly liberal in most cases, as I do support gay marriage and don't think that polygamy is "a danger to society" or anything taboo. But although I support toleration of polygamous relationships, I do not think polygamous marriages should be legally recognized. The only way marriage could ever be legally functional is if it is between two consenting adults.

  • Bad psychological health that almost certainly will lead to criminal actions.

    To me it seems that there are specific things that are distinctly understood by people. One is that there are some roles in a person's life that needs to be filled by one person. Man is designed in such a way that if we want to satisfy a mate, we must give them our all and vise versa. You cannot deny this fact, it is in our nature and DNA. This is why so many marriages fail because somebody breaks this natural law of marriage or love and the lover gets hurt. So far this is no reason to keep polygamy illegal; but, if you provoke someone, they are likely to respond with violence and other illegal activity. Also to give one man this power of more than one wife is actually psychologically bad for his health. The issue of greed arises if you are religious or not. The more greedy he gets, the worst his psychological health which can lead to physical behavior to protect his pride and possessions. This can lead to the abuse to his female counterparts both physical and mental.
