What do you think about a man who has two wives? Is it wrong? Sick? Do you think it's okay?
Where did the idea of being devoted to just one person as oppose to two, be considered the right of away or the only way?
If a man was married to you and told you he was going to marry his bestfriend which happens to be a woman what would you say, do or think?

As a religious person, the idea that God was always okay with polygamy is, well, inaccurate.
If you read the bible you'll see God made one man and one woman. He didn't give Adam two wives, He gave him one wife and they were to populate the earth. Later on, God allowed polygamy because it helped spread people around more, which was His original purpose. Once Adam and Eve had eaten the fruit off the tree they lost everlasting life, so populating the earth would now take a lot longer since people would now be dying off.
Later on, God abolished the practice of polygamy and made it the way He originally intended again, one man and one woman.
As for what I think of polygamy, I think that it is POSSIBLE to be in love with two people at once, but that doesn't mean you should marry them both. Marriage is a sacred bond, a beautiful thing between two people that brings love and security to both man and woman (at least that's what it's suppose to be) so no, I don't think polygamy is ok. It brings jealousy and competition, and that's not what a healthy marriage is about1
