In an era where more non-traditional ideas and concepts about sexuality and relationships are (gradually) becoming more socially accepted, Polygamy is still illegal in many countries, and is considered by people of varied religious, political and social persuasions to be an immoral thing.
I feel that, provided everyone is happy with their role and position within a relationship, then men (or women) should be allowed to have multiple spouses, if everyone directly involved consents to the situation and has no qualms with the arrangement as a whole.
However, I also understand why Polygamy has such a stigma. It's been used in the past as a justification for individuals who collect many wives (or in some cases, husbands) and neglect them or simply marry as many people as they can as some form of status symbol. Some people also feel that the intimacy of a marriage is devalued, if you're not the one and only spouse of your husband/wife.
So, how do fellow ADISCers feel about Polygamy as a practice and a concept?
