Polygamy in Utah

OK so I have enough jobs with one wife so why a guy would want more I don't know. If it was a collection of playboy bunnies I could understand it. Article here.

However, making it illegal seems wrong to me. It's a choice between consenting adults. Forcing it underground only has the same effect as with other things it criminalises otherwise law abiding people and gives a community for undesirables to hide in.

If it was legal and in the open could we not then direct attention to the sickos within the community that are involved in forced marriages and under age marriages. If you validate the marriage as you do for a green card less girls would fall through the cracks. Those who have not validated the marriage could be easily identified and investigated.
