    Peace, family (all non-White people,)

    I saw this question on another site and wanted to ask it here. In fact this thread might have already been done. If it was sorry for asking again, but do you think that polygamy should be legal in America? Why or why not?

    I think that it should be legal; anyone who is familiar with the Bible knows that polygyny (polygamy where a man has more that one wife, as opposed to polyandry which is polygamy where a woman has more than one husband) was a common practice in the Bible with the earliest instance appearing in Genesis 4:19: "And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah."

    So what do you think about polygamy?

    Peace and Brotherly Love.

    I think both women and men should be allowed to marry multiple partners if that is what they desire; to each is his own, that is not my business or life to try to dictate.

    The truth is, many people are polygamist anyway just not in the legal sense of the word. :lol:

    Peace, my Sister.

    Yeah. I wonder what those who made polygamy illegal in America were thinking if the Bible is the Book that they swore on. The Bible has many instances of polygamy.

    Peace.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Many want to talk about how they are Bible believing people all the way down to the core of it, so if that is the case, why do so many of these same ones not like the idea of polygamy puzzles me.

    I think this lifestyle is for some people, as long as they all are consenting adults.
