For the sake of humanity, I'm really hoping it's basically just those who are pro-polygamy who are commenting here...I'm depressed enough about this
messed up world I'm living in as it is...
We've actually had this discussion on ATS before. Throughout human evolution humankind was mated, a male and female bond, raising a family together.
When they get old, after their kids have kids of their own, they then look after their aging parents. A mother and father both serve natural roles and
hopefully they can handle the amount of children they decide to have. It's natural (the way nature intends.)
The argument that adding more spouses to the equation would solve martial problems rather than escalate them is downright preposterous. Human beings
are jealous by nature. Sociopathic ones, perhaps less so. But we tend to build stronger bonds to some individuals than others. You might love
different mother or father figures, such as grandparents, in your life, but your parents are the ones who raised you and in the end they're the ones
you'll hold dearest in your heart.
Marriage is a concept of two people, in love, who want to share their lives together. It is represented by a wedding ring, which symbolizes the two
united as one, and their link to that special someone. If people would rather sleep around, or have different partners, well, I guess no one can stop
stupid. But when it comes to marriage, sharing your life with someone, that is supposed to be sacred. The very concept of the wedding ring is a
romantic notion. Romance is more than just sex, but love, togetherness, the very experience of sharing the little things in life together.
Seriously, this world is so concerning...it's as if everything must go from one extreme to another. Either culture has to be super conservative, women
need to dress appropriately and sex is for after marriage, and bigotry against anything different is encouraged, or EVERYTHING GOES--marry two
husbands and a few wives, we'll live together (ain't that healthy!) Incest a common problem with polygamy? OH HEY, between adults, what's the problem?
Long as they are at the age of consent, right? Legalize prostitution because women should have a right to do what they want with their bodies (long as
they're legal age!) Legalize all forms of sex drugs and illegal pornography, because hey, people will buy and sell that stuff anyway (might as well
tax it!) Public nudity--what's so shameful about wearing the suit God made you? Public erections? Hey, it happens...public sex? It's natural! We've
already been witnessing the sexualization of children for cripes sakes, so just IMAGINE how far this can go...so far that it causes so many problems
that people begin to return to a more spiritual and conservative way of life, and, here we go again...
Or, imagine this: gays can marry, people can see other lovers outside a marriage without going to jail for it, BUT, there is a line to
determine how far is too far. Sound good to anyone besides me?
