8. As long as all participants are adults

and government benefits are not used to support the additional wives/children (often the case), who cares. I'm tired of the government getting into the bedroom, for whatever reason. I spent a lot of time in Utah (not just Salt Lake) and have met people in polygamous relationships. Some got in as young as 12 (3 kids by 18), which is completely wrong, and some were abused, which is also wrong, and some let AFDC support the extra wives and kids, all bad. But some were legitimately and happily families. Polygamy itself is not the problem, it's polygamy being underground which is the root cause of the problem. Just my humble opinion.
