Having sex with everyone in the house is only legal if it is Jersey Shore.
That’ll surely boost their ratings.
It’s not polygamy. The guy can legally be married to only one lady. The other two “sister-wives” are nothing more than live-in girlfriends having his babies. Last time I checked, that wasn’t illegal.
They seem to be a well-adjusted family. He also seems to be providing for them quite well, although he seems like kind of a dick-head. The kids appear to be happy, clean and polite.
I say let ‘em investigate all they want. Unless he has lied and ‘legally’ married someone else, he is not guilty of polygamy.
It’s okay for Muslims in the USA tho. Also okay to for some of their wives to be in other countries.
I don’t care what people do in their homes as long as nobody is being abused and they don’t rely on welfare or some other government subsidy to support their lifestyles.
It does seem to me this choice of taking multiple wives wouldn’t work in the long run if everybody did it because somewhere, some men will be short changed.
LOL The reason most oppose polygamy is once “word gets around”... well let’s just say those with “teenie weenies” would be the ones “short changed. LOL
That is why Islam does it and also why Islam is not and can never be a religion of peace. If a society practices polygamy, it needs some way of getting rid of the excess young men. Warfare is simplest method of doing so. Even if the world were ever united under Islam, the various sects would still be at war with each other more than they are right now.
I agree with the assessment. The only differences between this case and many black men are:
1. the women live in the same house, instead of different baby mamas living with their mamas
2. the father actually supports his own family, instead of welfare
You nailed it!
