The solution is simple. Don't get married!

What is the "Benefit" of being married anyway? You can make a simple agreement between consenting adults and it would be legally binding.(if what you want is a piece of paper to put in your files.

If you want two (or three or five or whatever) wives and they both "agree" to live with you in that relationship go ahead and do it.

If you are a woman and want two husbands and they both "agree" to live with you. Go ahead and do it. As long as it is agreed upon between consenting adults. Then it's none of the Governments business.

Governments have no right to tell you who you should sleep with and how many you should sleep with at the same time.

The problem is when people especially women are being "forced" into such relationships or minors. Then this is no longer a "consenting" relationship. If it's consenting then it is YOUR business and if you and your partners are fine with it. That's all there is to it.
