Can someone explain to me why it is wrong (infact, illegal) to be happily married to more than woman AT ONE TIME, but not wrong to be unhappily married to 5 woman OVER TIME (i.e. ending in divorce). http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/20010519/us/prosecuting_polygamy_19.html
And when you get done explaining this to me, please address why the 1 man goes to jail and 4 of the 5 women (or all 5 women) don't? Marriage, particularly in this case, does not seem like an action one can do alone... surely more than one must be guilty if anyone is guilty.
And finally, do you think the Utah guy not be facing jail time if he had just married only one woman and dated the other 4 at the same time? I'm pretty sure the Mayor of New York is married and dating; and no one seems to be bringing charges against him. (except his wife, of course... which makes me wonder how a guy who can't seem to manage his own relationships is going to manage the complexity of one of world's most important cities... ah.. but that's a topic for another thread....)
