This was touched on in another thread but I thought I'd start another thread about it.
I saw some interviews with some polygamists not long ago. The people who I saw were not were forced into polygamy, they had made a conscious choice to be part of this practice. They were not part of a religious sect when they made the choice but later joined one just for the comraderie. It's not uncommon for one man to have 10 or 12 wives, ranging in ages from 18 and up. It made me wonder what motivated both the men and the women but that is a whole other topic.
Anyways, as I mentioned in the other thread, polygamists are first in line to use the same arguments and precedents set if gay marriage is legalized. They say, it is consentual and done out of love. They say, if one alternate form of relationships is legalized, then why shouldn't other forms of relationships be legalized too?
So what are your thoughts on this matter?
