Wouldn't mainstream Polygyny help society as a lot of women that would have been single otherwise will have families to call their own?

And Men will not commit infidelity as they have wives who would love him and treat him like a king and kids who would have multiple parents to go to and rely on everybody will win with polygyny

    wow--you are making a lot of assumptions. you assume that single women are desperate to find husbands--even if they have to share them with other women--that's wrong. I would say the majority of singles would choose to remain single.

    you assume that husbands cheat because they aren't treated well enough (LOL) that would be wrong.

    children need multiple parents?? how about they just have parents who stay together and pay attention to their kids??

    polygamy works on some level for the kids (lots of attention)--but you end up with jealous wives, and the husband is severely overtaxed unless he happens to be a millionaire, and has lots of extra time on his hands.

    Look in the mirror as some of you've answered, stupid, dumb and never ending problems. For most women, it would be *** kicking time! 😁yessss it would💓💓

    I believe it’s up to the people involved in the marriage. Example. Maybe all the wives don’t want to work to help support their family. Or, maybe the husband is well enough off to support all his wives. As long as everyone is good with it, happiness can occur. In the other hand, you could make prostitution legal for both parties who want one spouse and aren’t getting enough at home. Maybe the emotional part wouldn’t be attached and it would work also

    No... polyamorous relationships are hard. I know people that are in them. It also makes no difference with infidelity. I know someone in a polyamorous relationship that cheated. It’s a thing. It also wouldn’t make women less single. In fact a lot of people are turned off by polygamy so it’s harder for them to find parents. Also the relationships are hard. You’re sharing your partner. There’s mistrust and there’s jealousy between people in the relationship and people outside of it. Also the children wouldn’t have more parents. They would have questions as to why there parents aren’t faithful to each other. And polygamy in marriage is usually “one guy has 8 wives,” not “these 4 people are all married.” Besides, would you want to raise a kid that isn’t yours? It’s very unlikely. I’m not saying that polygamy is wrong because if everyone wants that cool. But making it mainstream wouldn’t do what you think it will.

    But wouldn't it be better if a woman had several husbands? Many women can go forever without being intimate with a man. A man biologically must have sexual release one way or another. And rejection by women and society is probably a significant reason for the proliferation of mass murderers.

    Women that want to be married can usually find some jerk that is willing. In any case, knowing what I know now, remaining single doesn't sound that bad. A house full of cats would have been better than either of my husbands, and I don't need to be married to have a child.

    If a man gets to have 4 wives, then 3 other men will not be able to find partners. This will cause a lot of discontent in a society.
