Should Be Legal
A Secular Viewpoint
"People live by some laws they make and a lot more they never
made," wrote Baron de Montesquieu in The Spirit of the Laws.
Sure we have laws against polygamy, but why? Is it just another
"prejudice of Western culture"? Is it an old-fashioned bias that
we moderns can do without? Some people think so.
"Unlike human sacrifice, consensual polygamy does not violate
anyone's rights," writes Jacob Sullum, editor of Reason
magazine, a bellwether of libertarian thought. "Whatever its
merits, it cannot reasonably be banned in a free society that
tolerates all manner of sexual relationships and living
arrangements, in and out of wedlock." Many polygamous women tout
the practice as a "liberated female lifestyle," offering both a
"birth father" and financial support without the messy
jealousies and incompatibilities of monogamy.
