Fight for legalization of polygamy

Last update: 26 Mar 2018

Historically, monogamy had 2 purposes: to raise children in a more stable environment and to be enslaved by arbitrary religious restrictions. Both purposes are now void. Human race faces uncontrollable overpopulation and humans slowly reject religion. Humans change. A few years after you’ve married your partner, you or they may drastically change. The relationship can easily break. Sometimes, it is better to take a break, try something new. Or maybe you face some financial or labor difficulties in a monogamous relationship. Polygamy may fix it.

If you take a fresh look, you’ll see that the ban on polygamy simply makes no sense. It’s an arbitrary restriction put there for various profit- or power-related purposes. And if you take a step further, you’ll see that the concept of marriage makes no sense. But while it still has a legal meaning, it must be equal.
