Polygamy is simply the accumulation of multiple spouses. Without a marriage recognised by society or law, a relationship created with multiple partners is called Polyamory.
It is unlawful in many countries to marry more than one spouse. Polygamy, as this is termed causes economic conditions which is harder for governments to control.

A serious trusting relationship with multiple partners (because it's not cheating if you have no secrets and all partners are alright with you bringing another into the group) and without marriage (because marriage is only used by governments and religions to control stupid people). The larger the group gets, the more consent is needed to bring in new partners. Polygamy is not the same thing as an open relationship because in an open relationship you see and do who you want without asking for anyone's consent first.

The reason the government rejects polygamy as a way of living now is because;

A. The world is based on money, and households are based on a two person income so people work all the time, barely pay their bills, and still maintain I high level of debt while the kids are taken away by the school system and brainwashed to think learning is to repeat what is told to them.

B. They are still forcing religious views and beliefs upon all the citizens, to try and keep everyone stupid, unable to think for themselves and unable to act on their own.

Conclusion: Everyone has a right to their own beliefs, and most laws are just the beliefs of others being forced onto you from birth so you are never aware and still blindly follow. It's time to ask yourself and everyone else "Why?".

The practice of marrying more than one spouse.

To become specific, polygyny is a man (or woman) marrying multiple women (74% of societies are known for men taking many wives), and polyandry is a woman (or man) marrying multiple men (only about 2% of societies practice polyandry).

Also see monogamy.

The opposite of monogamy. To have many sexual partners within short intervals of time is to be polygamous. Expanding upon this, having bitches or call girls or multiple friends with benefits is being polygamous.
Polygamous behavior is one of the greatest proliferators of STD's next to sharing needles.
