Is Polygamy Wrong?

Postby Andsed » Tue Mar 19, 2019 11:42 am

Okay so if you don´t know Polygamy is basically being in an relationship with more than one person at a time. So the question I bring to you residents of NSG is Polygamy necessarily wrong?

Personally I don´t think so. If all parties are consenting to the relationship structure and everything is legal aka everyone is above the age of consent I don´t see any way it is wrong. It might be an odd kind of relationship to some but when everyone is consenting it harms no one and thus is not wrong.

But to my fellow posters of NSG do you think Polygamy is wrong?

I think if everyone consents to it, and they all like one another enough to have that kind of relationship then i guess its fine. Not my thing though, im a one partner kind of person.

Polygamy is wrong. Two caring parents and their kids are the basic structure of any nation or civilization. Polygamy destroys the most basic and necessary structure for civilization, the nuclear family, by allow one person to have multiple partners.

I personally believe polygamy to be nothing more than perversion and lust. I find it quite distasteful and simply put don’t like it.

This about sums up my view of things. Not really my cup of tea but if everyone involved is consenting, I dont see any problem.

Some say polygamy works if all parties agree, but in reality, the guy has nothing to do with if it works.
The women make it work.
If it doesn't work between the women, then it won't work.
Personally, I get why it is illegal. Look at Brigham Young for a prime example.
Also, things tend to get to a semi-legal, not very legal state, involving underage girls.
Way too much of a mess.

I don't think polygamy is outright horrible and wrong, whatever adults with consent do romantically is not really for individuals to decide. But i personally don't think it is a very good idea for most people, considering the favoritism from parties, and the economic strain would ruin most Polygamous relationships. But as long as I get my harem of genetically engineered -ette's. (Boswer, King boo, etc.etc.) i will be fine with polygamy.

As long as everyone consents and it doesn’t hurt anyone in the relationship, or around them, I could care less.

See, the history of polygamy, specifically the whole "slave wife" concept, is what made polygamy illegal. However, if it is consensual, and there is equal treatment of partners, then it should be legal, and it is not wrong.

No, in fact it should be legislated as the only acceptable relationship and those who think otherwise exiled from society to Boring People Island.

Okay then let me ask a question then. If everyone involved consent, are able to consent, and no one is being harmed by the relationship how is it wrong?

I will give you three arguments from three different standpoints-

Religious- I destroys the sanctity of marriage, and promotes sin
Societal- The parents aren't in it for kids, so they neglect them, and they are a burden upon society
Scientific- If you have already had sex, and then do it again, there is a higher risk for transmitting STD's

Religious- So? How does that actually harm anyone?

Societal- Do you have anything backing up that claim or are you just making a giant sweeping generalization? I´m guessing the latter.

Scientific- Yes STD´s are a risk but safe sex is a thing.

Indeed. Polygamy isn't wrong if everyone consents and there is respect between everyone. But then again that also applies to monogamy too.

Irrelevant, your personal religious view has no bearing on whether it should be legal.
That and historically there's been alot of religious support for polygamy, also 'sin' isn't actually a thing.
Societal- The parents aren't in it for kids, so they neglect them, and they are a burden upon society

You're going to have to prove this.
Scientific- If you have already had sex, and then do it again, there is a higher risk for transmitting STD's

So you're basically arguing against all sex by this logic.
