Kody Brown is a proud polygamist, and a relatively famous one. Now Mr. Brown, his four wives and 16 children and stepchildren are going to court to keep from being punished for it.
Hey, if you want 4 women telling you what to do and 16 children screaming through your house, god bless ya. Me? 1 wife and 2 dogs are more than enough.
Seriously, most of these polygamist marriages appear, to me, to be reminiscent of Sultanates and Sheikdoms. A dominant man with women and children being more property than partners. I wonder if a woman wanted to take 4 husbands, if the men would be so gung-ho about trying to make it legal. Seems to me the "bylaws" of these folks' belief system gives all the rights to the men and few, if any, to the women. There is too much room for abuse and that's where my beef comes in. If it worked both ways, I'd say let the masochists have at it.
