Should it be legal? Why or why not?
why not? well, because ... why not?! that question kinda answers itself, i would think. i can't think of any remotely valid reason for forbidding it.
I think, from a legal perspective, it would be very hard to accept.
When thinking about insurance and such, A man could have many different wives and they would all be covered under the same medical plan. Sounds expensive.
Then, there is the issue of overpopulation. To be completely honest, why does a man need more than one wife? If the sex doesn't work, you shouldn't be able to go to wife #2 and proclaim how wife#1 is frigid.
What is the purpose of more than one wife anyways? to cook, clean, and fuck him senseless? Just sounds like a wet dream from a man who is far too lazy to live in this world.
You see...most people think about polygamy between 1 man and many wives...
And just for that a vote: no!
And about 1 woman and many husbands ?
*shrug* some people have more than one car or house, which to my mind is far less acceptable than having more than one wife. of course it's gonna be more expensive. i don't see what that's got to do with the question of whether it should be legal or not.
again, a separate issue entirely. the answer to overpopulation is to prevent more people being born, not to regulate the personal lives of those already here.
umm, i'd suggest that if you marry someone before having sex with them, you've got far bigger problems to begin with anyways.
what's the "purpose" of having one at all? in an ideal world, the concept of state-sanctioned or religious unions wouldn't exist. since we appear to be stuck with them for the time being, where's the sense in deliberately making them even more ridiculous?
I believe that form of polygamy is called Polyandry. How ironic that is sounds like the name Pollyanna....
Well, I was thinking medical plans... maybe it is a Canadian thought. A family that has a medical plan here, is able to cover their entire family. Husband, wife, and children. Having extra wives or extra husbands ( as Gisella mentioned) would just mean more people taking advantage of the insurance. Yes, I know that people take advantage of the system Rock, no need to remind me. I just don't feel that society should give them another chance.
No, you are correct. It is a seperate issue and we shouldn't have to regulate the personal lives of those here.
Again, I go with the thought that if a man has more than one wife, this idea is that he will be having more sex. More sex, leads to more chances of being pregnant, Regardless of protection. It is a "what if" thought, but I feel it is valid.
Rock, not everyone has sex with their spouses before marriage. To suggest that ALL people have sex before marriage is a bit ridiculous. And I wasn't just refering to sex before marriage.
I was also refering to the men and women that get tired of sex as they age. I don't need to list the reasons, but we have all heard of the relationships that lose sex as they grow older. What was once 4 times a week, has turned into once a month, which has turned into twice a year.
People have affairs for these reasons, I don't agree with those either...but that is besides the point.
It's an interesting idea Rock, but marriage allows for companionship, trust, financial security (to an extent), as well as a place to raise children if a couple desires this. There is nothing wrong with marriage. I just don't see the requirement to have more than one wife/husband. Unless there is a reason that isn't:
1) finanacial security
2) more sexual activity
3) someone to clean up for you
4) More emotional and physical attachment
I wont' agree with it.
That is so Naughty ? ops...
Well, i still say NO to it because polygamy that i know are represented by some segments of the mormon church, that i find "sick"...dont know other polygamy situations...
And here my gutter mind was thinking about a gangbang...
No, I'm personally not ready to support it. For one thing, few could afford it and of those who can, few would want to have more than one wife.
And of those who would, I would question their sanity.
By the exercise of eternal vigilance, I've managed to avoid marriage to any. With no further effort, I could avoid marriage to many. So it makes no never-mind to me.
I think the main point is whether it should be legal, not whether you (or I) would want to do it. Seems to me the problem with laws is there are too many of them.
I say Polygamy (and everything else) should be legal unless there is some direct link to the activity and harm to other members of society.
You can have all of those without a legal marriage. Marriage is a cheap way to get out of a shit load of billable hours from lawyers. I vote to drop the marriage from law entirely and allow anyone to register a partnership at city hall.
Yeh right! U do have a gutter mind RideRocket my dear....:tongue:
I was thinking in a sensational parade of men of types to please me in every possible way...great intelects and minds, great cooks and housekeepers and sex expertises..just like a true Amazon girl likes.... :biggrin1:
Oh yeh :wink:
W00t! There's my vote too.
If we're talking about legalities, for me, it's like everything else- I don't care what other people do. Period. Sure, if people want multiple partner families, that's fine by me. The face of the American Family has changed completely, I'd rather have happy people living together and (possibly) raising kids than miserable ones.
I completely reject the idea that anyone should stay in a sexless marriage unless it is their wish to do so. Most do this out of guilt or a sense of obligation, not love. If for some reason one spouse loses interest, that shouldn't be a sentence of celibacy IMPOSED UNWILLINGLY on the other. Now, if the spouse wishes to remain celibate at the request of his spouse, that is still free will.
I wish people worried less about what other people do with their genitals.
MZ, I don't think anyone is saying anything about Divorce being a bad thing if the relationship isn't working out or is a loveless/sexless one. I just don't think that someone should have multiple partners and reep the benifits of each spouse.
If you aren't happy, get a divorce, and try to find someone new. DON'T go out while you are married, and marry another woman just because she gives better head, or makes baked alaska on weekends.
Awwwwwwwwwww....................8 husbands........................................mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm:bukkake2: :blowjob: :adam4:
Ah, but Honey_grrrl, that is also, 8 x's the gas and belching, 8x's the sports, 8x's the mess, and 8x's sexin. You sure you are up to that?
I give great head and I'll gladly cook baked alaska on the weekends. You can have it all and still be monogomous.
Seriously, everyone thinks they've failed if their family doesn't match the Cleavers. The real world is nothing like Maybury. If the parameters of your relationship dictate that you can't get involved with someone else, then you shouldn't - but that's not a legal issue, that's a relationship issue.
Chuck i need your "baked Alaska" recipe urgent!
And the head recipe too, ok?
