May polygamy rule!

Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems

Submitted by Ari Zade (Australia), Nov 26, 2008 at 14:11

I believe we should loosen up on our obsession with monogamy, but it should be fair. Women should be legally entitled to marry multiple men and non-Muslim men and women should be allowed to join in the harem life-style. In the West, de facto polygamy is commonly practiced with a spouse keeping a lover on the side. If gay union can now be accepted, why not this?
