Is polygyny legal in your nation?:
Yes

What about polyandry?:
No, women are forbidden from marrying multiple men according to the criminal law.
In Muslim Personal Law (as well as most Christian churches, sects and denominations)
women are forbidden from having multiple partners or spouses of either gender.

Same-sex polygamy?:
Yes, mostly for men.

Also maybe explain how your culture views polygamy and the history of it?
Polygyny is thousands of years older than Sharifistan itself.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) allowed it (up to a maximum of four wives). Sharifistani Muslims are permitted to have up to four wives provided that
1. They have the permission of their current wife (or wives)
2. They can afford to support them all comfortably and
3. They treat them equally.
Some religions allow an unlimited number of wives whilst other religions only permit men to have one wife.

Postby Clopeana » Fri Feb 26, 2021 10:52 am

At this time, no such specific legislation exists in Clopeana. Polygamy, same-sex relationships, and other marital grants are must likely guaranteed under our first amendment, although the Court may need to do some revision. However, as the nation has deep-set religious roots, it's unlikely you would find such activity outside of West Clopeana, which is in general more socially progressive.

All of this information is current, but subject to change should suitable legislation arise to address it.

Polygamy - regardless of the genders/sexualities involved, is completely legal in Australia, and polygamous civil unions/marriages can be granted, with some caveats.

The chief stipulation is that all prospective civil partners consent to union with all other members of the union. As such, polygamous relationships involving polycules where not all partners are reciprocal (e.g. a person having two separate partners who are not themselves partners, and so on) cannot be recognised as civil unions/marriages. This is primarily to avoid situations such as 'marriage trains', connected chains of civil partners in open polygamous relationships that could cause bureaucratic hell, and also to dissuade inequitable polygamous relationships.

That said, no polyamorous relationship between consenting adults is illegal, just that only 'closed-circuit' types can enter into civil unions. Should a more complex or 'open-circuit' grouping wish to enter into civil union, it is possible to have only those who reciprocate be fully married, and establish a separate but also legally recognised relationship with a non-reciprocal or transient member/s, similar to a de-facto partnership or other recognised relationship. This would grant some (but not all) rights also afforded by civil union, and also act as as a declaration by the married grouping that this additional relation is not adulterous in nature.

Should a situation occur that 'opens' a 'closed-circuit' grouping (e.g. a member wants to divorce only one other member) and the grouping cannot come to an agreement as to who will exit the civil union, arbitration and then judicial mediation will be provided. As a rule of thumb, the more senior (longer) relationship/s will be upheld, barring other circumstances and factors.

Marriages have no legal protection under Bunkaïan law. "Marriage" and other forms of slavery are banned from being recognized under the Bunkaïan Constitution. People do have ceremonious marriages but there is no law legally binding them and there are no state-provided benefits given. Many do form temporary “marriages” as a token of love or appreciation but these are all important to the pertaining individuals and not really something they show off in public.

Marriages performed outside of Bunkaïa receive no legal protection or benefit when in Bunkaïa and all Bunkaïan diplomats must pledge to forego such barbaric traditions. Foreigners for example do not receive citizenship upon or after “marrying” a Bunkaiian. The state grants citizenship rights on a case by case issue.

All Bunkaïan citizens must complete an exam and receive certification from the government prior to becoming sexually active or especially breeding, otherwise they may run the risk of government-sponsored forced sterilization.
Tourists who are interested in being sexually active in Bunkaïa must also complete the exam, otherwise both parties run the same risk.
As long as the certification and exam have been cleared, all types of sexual acts or relations are permitted as long as all participating individuals are willing.

Polygamy of any kind, e.g. polyandry, polygyny, same sex or otherwise, is de jure not "illegal" as it's not specifically regulated by law. De facto it is the same as marriage, that is, it is never legally recognised nor exists within the laws of the Prut Meritocracy, i.e. the legal status of wife/husband does not exist and is not recognised. It doesn't matter if it's a single or multiple. One could consider the practices to be decriminalised, but it generally doesn't matter and any possible legal issues (e.g. inheritance, property rights, child custody, visitation rights, etc.) is regulated by specific civil laws.

Culturally speaking the Prut people vary in opinion and apparently don't much differ on either monogamous or polygamous marriage, in that either are regarded as somewhat odd and counter-intuitive foreign practices. In areas that are less exposed to foreigners views might run from regarding is as "barbarity and slavery" to "quirky foreign legal BDSM", while areas that are more regularly in contact with foreigners tend to be "politely blasé and tolerant" about it mostly out of practicality.

Marriage, in the Sertian Domex of 1167, is defined as:
- "A union, in God, of humans."
This has been interpreted by the Sertian Academy as an authorisation of all types of marriage. Polygamy has been a normal sight even before the Sertian Domex was allowed into law by Verna II of Osperfey.

polygamy is legal. polyandry has no law on it and is treated in most areas as legal. same-sex polygamy does not have a law and in most areas is treated as legal. Polygamy has a big history. In our religious texts, it says it should be supported and our country's religious people have practiced it since their founding. It is a major part of our culture

Polygamy has been a more recent cultural revival, it's more popular among queer people in our realm. Practice of it varied by region.

Marriages must be registered at city halls or regional governments in order to be valid legally. Priests are just customary but do not need that. Anyone can perform marriage ceremonies, though typically, those with some power like clerics and nobles do it. That's the only catch, of legal registration. Marriage certificates are only offered to adults (defined as of the age of majority) and there is no limit. Group marriages are more common though they first started with some nobles who had multiple consorts especially of various genders.

Some religious sects and convents practice group marriage, and are usually all same gender, often called brother-husbands if male, or sister-wives if female, these monks and nuns have been the longest keepers of the practice, even when marriage laws were more restrictive than they are now. These monks and nuns venerated gods and goddesses of love, marriage, erotic desire, or even fertility in some cults. Though some monastic orders have been chaste and dedicated to detaching oneself from earthly bonds. Our religion is very pluricentric, even when it has created tension or pretext of war.

Polygamy isn't the majority of marriages, but it does represent an increasingly growing share in all registered marriages in the realm.

Other tidbits, it was not uncommon for a "Turkish marriage" to refer to an arrangement of one stallion and up to four mares. However, there have been recorded instances of polyandrous marriages in some places, though they are not as regulated as heterosexual polygyny.

Polygamy nowadays is only accepted if the partners are all equals.

Polygamy is rather common with the nobility in Airceltria. Both men and women in this circle tend to have multiple spouses. Some due it to grow wealth, influence, and grow closer ties with other families, and others do it out of genuine love.

No. To all options. Polygamy and poliandry are not legal in my country. Same sex marriage is accepted and legal. But
Legally, you only can be married to a person at a time.
Or, don't marry, live together and have children together.

It exists the chance that someone could have an open relationship, and, that third people cohabites with the original couple. But, legally the other person is not recognized as married to someone of the original couple. But if there children in common with the third person the member of the original couple can recognize them as their and have paternity rights.

The same way my Government did an"t recognize as valid overseas poliamorous certificates. In cases of familiar reunification.
