It may be legal in the country where you live. But it's still technically illegal to practice polygamy in the USA. From what I understand, there are parts of Utah where the authorities do not enforce the law even though they know the people who are living in a polygamous household.

Why not multiple husbands for one wife, or just multiple partners, period? As for "challenging the prohibition," you're still stuck in American Puritan mode. Polyamorous marriage is practiced (and legal) in many countries currently. From: "jr_esq@...

With the acceptance of gay marriage, IMO it would soon be possible for people to challenge the prohibition of polygamy in the USA.
