The monogamy movement in recent history is a cousin to communism. The real reason behind it is that rich and powerful guys married many wives, and left the poor weak guys with no women. The egalitarian movement was started to allow for equality. Since men/women ratio is essentially 50/50, if a one man marries 100 wives like the King of Saudi Arabia, or 1000 wives like King Solomon, that takes away from the pool of available women.

Polygamy has been around for thousands of years in all kinds of cultures, and it can be a solution to the current divorce crises. I submit for discussion: When women get too focused on children, and neglect their sexual duty towards their husbands (having headaches!), then husbands can bring in a competition a new wife. The old wife, and her children will stay in the family, and the new women will provide sexual void for the guy. I know all that crap about the women libs, which are going to scream "how about women having more husbands"! I think if a girl is in need of sex as frequently as a guy, and her husband does not want to provide it, SHE CAN HAVE AS MANY HUSBANDS AS SHE WANTS! The reality is very few girls on this planet have such a high drive.

Huh? Communism sought do elimiate marriage in favor of civil unions. BTW monogamy has also been around for thousands of years, therefore your polyagamy arguement is not a solution to the present divorce crisis. What is the solution is the strengthening of marriage throught the strenghtening of the moral fabric of todays society that has been torn down over the past several decades of free sex, abortion, condoms, welfare and no fault divorce. Polyagamy would only add fuel to the lawyers - imagine the child support lawsuits that could spring up as well as the other legal issues. No, the answer lies with the man and woman coming into the marriage committed it that divorce is not an option, and society supporting and encouraging them.

Right. Tell that to Henry VIII. Monogamy and it's cousin serial monogamy has been the norm in Western (and Christian) societies for thousands of years.
