Multiple Serial Marriages Still Differ From Polygamy

It was asked online how America can condemn other nationís that allow polygamy when this country allows people to marry, divorce, and marry again and often for any reason whatsoever?

For starters, the American serial marriages are not occurring all at the same time.

Secondly, in these countries that allow the practice of polygamy, often the woman or women have very little say about whether or not additional wives are brought into the household.

Furthermore, often these polygamist marriages are imposed upon girls that barely have an awareness of the birds and the bees.

Seldom do you see these gerontological perverts eager to get it on with those around their same age.

In America, hardly anyone is forced to wed a divorced spouse. American woman go into these less than optimal partnerships of their own choosing.

They are not sold off like cattle in these dirt pile countries.

Thirdly, just because a government or popular consensus might allow for a particular practice does not mean those holding to a contrary perspective cannot vocalize opposition.

It is that these days that there are so many debaucheries going on at the same time that the critical mind must prioritize.

At least the divorced and remarried are striving towards the monogamist ideal.
