Are there any real arguments against polygamy?
Whenever same-sex marriage becomes legal somewhere, detractors always say the same thing: What next? Can I now marry my dog? If gay people can get marry is paedophilia and polygamy OK? (I really read this just this morning.) The difference in most cases is of course that we are talking about consenting adults, whereas animals or children cannot give consent. But what about polygamy? It also involves consenting adults and apart from it making it difficult for lawmakers in terms of inheritance, child custody, etc., why not?
