    Wrong and destructive. It's just an easy way out - adultery by another name. Does anyone ever ask the woman if they approve of their husband shagging a different wife every night of the week. No they do not.

    Re: Polygamy: what is your opinion?

    I think it's awful to have more than one spouse. It's a sin. I am happy with my husband and he doesn't need someone else. I am his lover, the mother of his children and his loyal friend. A man does not need more then that.

    Its basically putting adultery in a legal setting inventing workarounds for it rather than taking the option of only sticking to one partner at a time. I've noticed that most societies that do allow polygamy are very oppressive towards women. The threat of the husband taking another wife is used to get the wife to do what the husband wants.

    Even open relationships peole I know that have had them have been very unhappy after a while. Both partners become very jealous of each other and it is often the case that one person expects to be allowed to do whatever they want but they don't allow the other one to do anything.

    I would NEVER go out with anyone who wanted me to share them with anyone else. Just because some people (normally men) can't control their urges. :eyes

The fact that the instinct for monogamy is so rare in nature attests to this.
    I'd rather say it had more to do with society construction, based on family connections, rather than depreciation of strength of any kind. Moreover monogamy is not a Christian invention afaik. Saying that monogamy is "not natural" isn't true: it's not as common as polygamy, but still appears. See wolves, some of the monkeys, also birds.
    Also I doubt you consider yourself as an animal. One cannot deny the development of human mind.

    Realistically ladies, is there a man alive who wouldn't want his own harem?
    I'm sure there is!

Nominally monogamous breeding occurs in order to prevent overpopulation, as a large pack size cannot be sustained with a 90% attack-failure rate. When polygamy can be stustained, it does occur. Simple economy...

    Unremarkably, a full 95% of the Mammalia class is polygamous:

    One also cannot deny the fact that our closest primate ancestor -- the chimpanzee, with whom we share 95-98% of our DNA -- is polygamous. Surely, the chimp provides more insight into unmitigated human behaviour than does the albatross.

    I think that if a woman cannot satisfy her man he should be allowed to seek outside release as long as they both think this is a good idea. People have urges for a reason. If you are hungry you should eat same thing with sexual needs.

    What is your opinion of all those pick up lines which start with the guy telling the subject-female she is the best thing on the planet and ends with a proposal to be his "second wife".
    I am only ok with polygamy if it’s something consentual done on the side. I think the best thing for a kid by far is to have a mother and a father. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that the idea of having multiple wives is not somthing that should be done.
