    Polygamy could be a good response to our sexual

    instincts - keeping the same partner for many years places a lot of strain, and as we have seen in the last 4 decades, once social mores stop enforcing it, marriage pretty much founders 80% of the time. That said, polygamy comes with its own basket of problems - much like Newton...

    I have to say I am curious about the whole

    marriage thing. If you look at it logically. You are basically being asked to select a mate for life. Which, when you consider all the changes you have to go through,all the experiences you have to endure, is really a tough expectation to live up to. Polygamy I imagine is just...

    For People Against Polygamy

    I guess this could be said about alot of groups out there but I see it a lot on this issue. People that are against polygamy tend to be so narrow and closed minded and rather ignorant of what polygamy entails. If you try to explain it to them they don't listen and if you get...

    There are different types of polygamy.

    There is polyandry (one woman, multiple males), polyamory (multiple males, multiple females), and polygyny (one male, multiple female marriage). I am interested in Polygyny. If anyone else is interested, please message me.

    I'm 33, I have an amazing husband !

    ! We've been together for 14 years and we have 2 kids. I've found over the last 5 years that my urges to be with a woman grow. The Idea of sharing my husband with that woman excited me. We decided to have a ********* so we joined a sex site and eventually found a beautiful woman...

    I think it's an interesting concept,

    especially considering human beings capacity to love in different ways (all at once) including. companionship, romantic, and sexual. If it is a mutual thing all around, and there's no dishonesty, it can be successful, I think. (It's kind of annoying how people just assume it's...

    My husband wants to take on a second wife.

    happily have more than just one lover and have them know about it and be perfectly fine with this, maybe even aroused by it. Why is this such a bad thing?

    What's Cool About Polygamy?

    Polygamy is a strange ancient thing for most people. There are references to the prophets of the Old Testaments being engaged in polygamy. It makes sense to think that the population was lower then, and polygamy (even incestuous relationship) was a real necessity. For example...

    for someone, another wife. We just happen to live in the south where nothing is accepted in the open so it makes it difficult to meet others like us. We just want to know other like minded people that we can be ourselves around.

    I am wondering about polygyny in particular.

    How do women get abused into and inside of this arrangement where they are the majority? Additionally, does anyone know of a polygyny group where the man was being abused by the wives? I think it would very interesting to learn about and I am going to write a story about it.

    Is it really a bad thing?

    People bash on it and all but I'm trying to understand the point of it. Marrying more than one spouse does not seem like a bad idea if you look at it. Not like I would get involved, I don't even like the idea of marriage. So anyways, with two or more spouses, they can take care...

    Though I would't mind sharing a man,

    I always wondered if guys would be willing to share a wife. Like if I could have more than one husband, or a husband and one or two boyfriends. Not like cheating, but everyone agreeing to that kind of relationship.
