If polygamy was legal, would you be part of it? I don't think I could be part of polygamy. It would be very hard to see my husband be with another woman. I am not a jealous person but I really think I would be extremely jealous. Also, to know my husband is having kids with another woman. I couldn't do it! The part of polygamy I do like is the help from the other women. I wouldn't mind an extra set of hands or two helping out with the chores, or the kids, or dinner. I just couldn't handle the extra hands on "my man". What are your thoughts on polygamy?

I think its just morally wrong to tell you the truth. When God creaated man he didnt create Eve, sara, and Jane. It was just EVE!!! It just goes to show you how man just makes rules and morals on there own. I mean there not even thinking about how all these children that they are creating are going to be affected by this. Calling your sister and brother, your cousin. And it just puzzles me do all the kids call the women "MOM". Just looking at the reporst on tv and seeing the living conditions that these families are living in, is not healthy. They have trailers hooked up to trailers. My question is, does the government help them out finacially. Better yet are we as Tax payers helping to provide for families like this. I mean not tos ound selfish, but these men choose to live like this. They have the mindset to marry all these women and father all of these kids. I strongly believed that it should be totally banned. Living like that is not right at all, and the children i believe are being brought up in the wrong way.

I personally wouldn't want to share my partner with someone else. However, I can see how it would work in some circumstances. Some women just don't want a husband full time. With polygamy, they get the security of a permanent relationship, but get some time to themselves as well. If everyone involved is happy with the situation, and no one is being manipulated or forced into something they don't want to do, I don't see the problem.

no way! whatever anybody else may think, love and partnership is set for a husband and wife, not husbands and wives. singular, not plural. I don't think I can ever be part of a polygamous relationship, if my husband has found another woman to love then he can stay with her, it only means that I am not what he is looking for and I will let him go, but to stay in a relationship where you 'share' your hubby...nah.. I don't think I'm up for that.

Polygamy is considered 'alternative' lifestyle. Meaning, it doesn't affect anyone. Nor should anyone be so bothered by it. It's just another way of living. If you don't want to practice it yourself, then don't. Don't ruin the lives of people who are happy with the way their lives are. I'm tired of those outspoken losers who have nothing more to say about anyone but to trash them.
