Exactly the reason they are not in prison. The prosecutor looked to make sure they were not breaking any tax laws and said it wasn't worth it.

my wife is LDS(Mormon). we were watching a bit of one of the first shows. I looked at her(wife) and before I could say anything, she said no damned way can I have more than one wife. I thought I could get a bonus or two out out of this marraige.

Polygamy in the US is commonly associated with massive welfare dependency and perhaps welfare fraud.

My guess is the marriages are not actual go down to the court house and get a license type of commitment. They are probably a marriage of mutual agreement between the each other.

Anybody that wants more than one wife should be locked up.

For being criminally insane.

Having more than wife seems time consuming, expensive and aggravating. I mean, sure you get a little more variety, but at what cost? Your sanity, I would imagine.

The libertarian in me agrees with "Who the Fuck Cares?" if they're "normal" living without the corruption/fraud, or abusive cult-like atmosphere.

The pragmatist in me however knows that if polygamy was widespread, it would seriously fuck over civilization as we know it. The cult-towns already shun/expel their "surplus males" on the pretense made up infractions or sins so there's fewer men around that need wives.

Selective sex abortion and infanticide has already caused a pretty big imbalance, numbered in the millions in China, which has already led to an increase in human trafficking for sex-workers and kidnappings of women.

Polygamy is one of many stresses on the Middle Eastern/Muslim male that while far from the ONLY reason, is still a contributor to the area being a basket case, and a ready supply of young men willing to blow them selves up for fresh poon in heaven...

A random handful of people where it "works for them"? Fine.

Widespread? Houston, we have a problem...

Neither the Constitution nor Libertarianism was intended as a suicide pact.

I met this African dude once who told me this was common in his country. I was married at the time, and commented something like "One is enough to deal with." He replied: "You've got it wrong. When you have several, they make friends with each other and leave you alone."

Interesting point.

My mom retired as a Social Worker who worked for the Utah Prison System.

You would be surprised that Utah was actually pretty good at putting polygamists in prison. That is one of the reasons one of the big sects moved to Texas... Texas, they thought, would let them be. Instead, Texas changed their age of consent from 14 to 16, and began prosecuting them like Utah did.

Yeah, even the "rich" families still commit welfare fraud. The guy, who may be independently wealthy, will still have his "girls" apply for welfare programs as "single" moms...

That, and tax-evasion, and tax-related crimes are crimes committed pretty regularly by polygamist sects...

When I was a backward teenager, I was working in a grocery store when a polygamist woman was arrested for shoplifting with a dozen kids in tow.

Multiple women might *sound* like a good idea...

It is illegal under Federal law, passed specifically to harass the LDS church. But it is difficult to prove and, as mentioned above, is now used for welfare fraud and as a cover for pedophilia.

There has never been a time in Western civilization, going back at least to Republican Rome, when marriage was not defined and regulated by government. Legal marriage is older than the Church.

If government were out of the marriage business, what would become of the estate of a childless man who died intestate?
Would what we now call the spouse's share go to the last woman person he is proved at trial to have fucked, would it escheat to the state, or would it be left to rot?

If government were out of the marriage business, would termination of a cohabitation result in a division of the parties' property and debts? If so, would a one-night sleepover be entitled to take you to court the next day?

If government is out of the marriage business, isn't the guy you roomed with in college entitled to the same rights as a woman with whom you cohabited for a like period of time? Aren't all three of the people with whom you shared a house in grad school? Or the two steamfitters with whom you shared a motel room when you worked that nuke plant shutdown last summer?

If there is any set of circumstances under which you agree that one person with whom you shared a home should have different rights from those enjoyed by any other person with whom you shared a home, you endorse state-sanctioned marriage.

I don't think it is illegal under federal law. It is true that the feds conditioned Utah's admission to the Union on the territory's adoption of a state constitutional prohibition of polygamy.

I had been under the impression it was. Upon looking, it appears that it was the pressure applied by the Federal Government that brought this about.
