a question a day keeps the doctor away
This one's gonna be brief. I really have just a single question.
Why is polygamy illegal?
If a man married to one wife has multiple affairs a court will order him to pay support to any children he fathers.
Nobody is ever prosecuted for philandering. The worst that could happen is he'd lose a custody hearing should they divorce.
But if he is willing to volunteer support, if the mistresses want to live near him, and if nobody is underage, what's the problem?
Let me reiterate that underage marriage is obviously wrong and should be prosecuted. Based on that big raid last year it seems that underage marriage isn't a frequent issue.*
Does anyone know why polygamy is illegal?
*Besides, I want to discuss polygamy as a concept as opposed to a particular groups use of it.
