Polygamy's going mainstream.

(Next Washington Times advert.)

From today's Jerusalem Post:

Why not Mr. and Mrs. - & Mrs... & Mrs...?

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer recently called attention to how polygamy had made its way back into the news: "Under the headline 'Polygamists, Unite!' Newsweek informs us of 'polygamy activists emerging in the wake of the gay-marriage movement.' Says one evangelical Christian big lover: 'Polygamy rights is the next civil-rights battle'...But let's be honest. Man is not really a monogamous creature. If he were, you wouldn't have so many men betraying their wives. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, but in general, man requires variety and woman requires security. And security for many women means knowing that you are not alone, that you're part of the tribe...
Feminism so totally devalued women as stable relationship partners too many men nowadays won't marry. Nevertheless very hard to imagine men going for polygamy when women are so sexually available for little cost or effort.
