I realize that there is a great deal of pressure in the LDS culture for individuals to get married ASAP. But what about those looking for their 2nd polygamous wife? The first one was hard enough to find, what about the second??
Don't you fret! The people at www.2wives.com have provided a platform for finding that second special someone.
Of course Polygamy is not a new thing to the world. Back in biblical times it was practiced, and was practiced in this final dispensation as part of the restoration of all things. Many individuals have debated on whether or not the church's decision to end polygamy was really inspired or if we caved to the pressures of the government. Elder Widtsoe in his book "Evidences and Reconciliations" handles that debate quite well for those interested.
For now, a new argument has come to the table that could make its way here to the US from Canada. That is, if Gay marriage is to be allowed on the basis of consenting adults agreeing to the arrangement, then why not allow polygamy? There currently is a story in Canada where and FLDS member is using this legal argument to justify his 19 wives (perhaps a user of 2wives.com). And what about all those lesbian polygamists?
What I want to know, is this a valid argument? If you allow gay marriage, are you not then supposed to allow any marital relationship between as many consenting adults as is agreed upon by the parties involved? If polygamy is legalized, do you think that the church would then re-instate it as a practice among those called to do so as was done in the earlier days of the church?
