My comments in bold.
I agree with some of these. Some are just assertions.
It’s glorified infidelity.
[My comments in square bracketsin·fi·del·i·ty/ˌinfiˈdelitē/
- The action or state of being unfaithful to a spouse or other sexual partner.
How are you being unfaithful if this is an honest relationship? If you look at it like a contract, as long as everyone agrees to the terms, who is being cheated on?]
It would be difficult for the government to tax.
[How so? I’m sure they’d figure it out.]
Relationships should be between two people.
Couples have to make decisions and compromises together, and it’s harder to agree when there’s multiple people.
[Harder, maybe, but not impossible.]
Polygamous relationships can end up with too many children. The world is already overpopulated.
[Monogamous relationships can end up with ‘too many’ children. Slightly off topic, but I read somewhere this planet can host 10 billion humans, and we’re only at 7. If we expanded into the space then we wouldn’t even have that cap, but that’s a topic for another post]
Polygamy is almost never polyandry. It’s not about women’s freedom to choose who they marry or how many spouses they have- it’s about women being owned by men.
[Almost never, this is not true in every case.]
Marriage is a partnership and a relationship. Polygamy turns marriage into a cattle drive.
[A partnership doesn’t mean two people. I don’t know what you mean by ‘cattle drive’]
Polygamy skews the natural ratio of marriageable men and women.
[There’s still plenty of fish in the sea.]
Most people agree that countries that practice polygamy live in an oppressive, abusive society with fanatical, religious men- especially when they marry young girls to older men.
[Most people are not well informed, in my experience. This may be a pattern in existing countries where polygamy is allowed (citation needed), but that does not mean it would be the case always.]
Spouses can have animosity, jealousy, etc towards other the other spouses and it creates tension.
[People who suffer from jealousy and the likes probably shouldn’t go for polygamous relationships.]
The established needs are impossible to meet in a polygamist marriage. These needs include- ongoing affection/attention, conversation, honesty and openness, financial support, and help around the house.
In all polygamous cultures, women have extremely low status.
[Citation needed. Also, as mentioned before, just because it is a pattern in existing countries where polygamy is allowed, that does not mean it would be the case always.]
True love is a bond that is only possible to be shared between two people.
Most North American “families” in polygamous situations are on welfare or food stamps.
Polygamy is a choice, while sexual orientations are not choices.
Legalizing polygamy would give more power to religions, and would infringe on women’s rights.
Legal polygamy would turn immigration into a nightmare. An immigrant can claim to be wed to half a nation of women and demand that all these women be brought to, say, the US. Polygamists can arrive at the border and demand refugee status because of persecution. Sorting out these claims would be impossible, since most nations refuse to give legal status to such marriages.
[Interesting that your example is the US, a nation of immigrants.]
(I’m sure I could find several other reasons, sorry if I repeated any, as I found some from multiple websites)
… is an awesome thing, but it needs a few tweaks. Namely:
- Built in screen capture button to save your favourite pieces.
- Replace the different brush sizes with a brush size slider.
- Add white to the default colours, remove the rubber/eraser tool
- Add an opacity slider.
That’s all, for now.
