I am sort of pro marriage equality for polygamy. I think that if the movement progresses though, the legal framework would need to evolve. IE. if three ppl want to get married they must all be on the same license, not multiple licenses for 1 person. I'm also aware in eastern cultures where polygmy is legal there can be a socio-economic imbalance (ie poor men cannot marry) and that would need to be balanced as well.

There will always be haters, as there are for gay marriage.

I don't know how polygamy will be overcome without a federal change, as it was a federal change that made it illegal, ages past.

states rights vs federal rights, etc etc actually herein lies the same roadmap for legalizing marijuana

I do believe that, one day, polygamy will be completely legal. I thoroughly believe that. It will take so much consideration and legal change, though, that it is quite some way off.

For example: How many spouses can someone have on their healthcare plan? How do you tax a family with three adults? How do the legalities of three parents of a child work?

They're not insurmountable questions, certainly. But they are questions that are going to take a lot of legal discussion before polygamy can be legalized in our society.


Met in 2010 on a forum for a mutual interest. Became friends.
2011: Realized we needed to evaluate our status as friends when we realized we were talking about raising children together.

2011/2012: Decided we were a couple sometime in, but no possibility of being together due to being same sex couple.

June 26, 2013: DOMA overturned. American married couples ALL have the same federal rights at last! We can be a family!

June-September, 2013: Discussion about being together begins.

November 13, 2013: Meet in person to see if this could work. It's perfect. We plan to elope to Boston, MA.

March 13, 2014 Married!

May 9, 2014: Petition mailed to USCIS

May 12, 2014: NOA1.
October 27, 2014: NOA2. (5 months, 2 weeks, 1 day after NOA1)
October 31, 2014: USCIS ships file to NVC (five days after NOA2) Happy Halloween for us!

November 18, 2014: NVC receives our case (22 days after NOA2)

December 17, 2014: NVC generates case number (50 days after NOA2)

December 19, 2014: Receive AOS bill, DS-261. Submit DS-261 (52 days after NOA2)

December 20, 2014: Pay AOS Fee

January 7, 2015: Receive, pay IV Fee

January 10, 2015: Complete DS-260

January 11, 2015: Send AOS package and Civil Documents
March 23, 2015: Case Complete at NVC. (70 days from when they received docs to CC)

May 6, 2015: Interview at Montréal APPROVED!

May 11, 2015: Visa in hand! One year less one day from NOA1.

Agreed on all of it.. I think the health care question can only be answered when we eventually move from insurance companies to a government system where marital status is no longer an issue. Probably not in my lifetime for Polygamy, but eventually.

I'm very much hoping that the US goes to a single payer system in the next decade or so. Poorer people have had a taste of healthcare now, that should help move it forward. Healthcare should be a fundamental human right. Without your health, you cannot exercise any other freedom. You cannot contribute fully to the economy. Etc.

I agree with you but polygamy is already here. I'm not saying this as a liberal, I'm saying this as I've had anthropology as a hobby for nearly two decades now and after having lived half of that time overseas..

Polygamy might sound fashionable/ rebellious to many but it's got a lot to do with economics. Why would kings have many wifes? Take the current king of Thailand, he has 1 official wife, 135 minor wives and over 1000 concubines. Why would they join his harem? Economics.

In our country unless we fix income inequality in the coming years and decades.. I expect polygamy to multiply, especially polyandry for the general public. It's already happening in Nepal/ India/ China/ Arab countries/ Indonesia and Malaysia.. not that we want to be associated with them but it's economics. Not all the males in these economies can afford a house/ wife/ raising kids together but they can in a polyandry society.

The American Dream is getting harder and harder to achieve with incomes coming down as high paying jobs are being sent overseas or replaced with H1-B's while real estate prices/ rent prices are the same. So expect some men who aren't jealous of some life buddies they trust to start forming a family unit together so that multiple incomes are coming in to support them together in the same home with a shared wife.

Similarly Polygyny will be the area of the millionaires/ billionaires if it isn't already. You see it in plain sight without the need to get marriage documents.. all these expensive high price escorts, hookers and mistresses like Donald Sterling and V. Stiviano.

I still have no idea why a man would want two women giving him sh!t. Monogamy is one wife too many.

A person I work with told me "If you have a dog then you have a dog.. If you have two dogs they have each other.. If you have three dogs they have you"
