The mormons get into a better version of heaven if they have more wives and kids.

beyond that, i know warlords and village leaders have a bunch of wives in order to maintain power/control and have a shit load of kids to be their workers.

Back when life centred around necessities, that is. What's the survival/evolutionary benefits of polygamy?

Re: Anyone Care To Explain The Reasoning Behind Polygamy?
The reason is, the men get to have multiple sexual partners. The women just have to deal with it.

It's sick and twisted.

God created marriage, Adam and Eve. Not Adam, Eve and a few other women.

Before the corruption from middle eastern religions polygamy in Europe was several males with one female giving the advantage of multiple fighters defending the children, because the men were never sure if the child was related to them or not. Of course the woman was the head of the house and a warrior in her own right.

In what context? Mormon creator Joseph Smith preached that it was word from god and had to be practiced to enter the highest levels of the celestial kingdom. Anyone and everyone can say they dont practice it today but my husbands uncle is a mainstream mormon with three wives and two sets of twins. Nobody ever really discusses it in there family it is all very intriguing.

Sure. It's quite simple really:

Animals where the sexes are similar in size are always monogamous.

Animals where the male is much larger than the female are always polygamous.

Everything thus works exactly as designed. But human males are only slightly larger than human females, which means nature couldn't quite make up it's mind on us. We're stuck in the middle ground, and as a result both monogamous and polygamous cultures exist among humans.

Polygamy in the early Mormon church was used to save the widows of the French Indian wars,they were taken in by married families so they would not be destitute.

through all history 80% of woman have reproduced but only 40% of men.

Brought up mormojn.

Part of the reason was to extend the protection of a man over women. Remember the time frame we're discussing and the societal rules of the day.

In particular it was used during the pioneer moves, town foundings, and extreme conflicts. There were many widows.

Now, there are many skeletons in the mormon closet and I won't say that there aren't sordid or perverse reasons for it, nor will I say that there wasn't hinky behaviour involving older men castrating younger competition. - This can be found with research along with other things.

Mormons were created by the Templars to fill the west before the Protestants could.

Muslims were also created by Rome.

While Catholics dont have multiple wives they are known for having large families.

It is their empire building. They simply multiply. Demographics is the mother of politics.

Especially in time of war or in those countries where war is a constant, and the male population is diminished it is an absolute neccessity for those remaining men to procreate with as many females as possible to maintain the population or they will disappear in a few generations.

It is also used as a means to conquer a nation silently. Look what the muslims have done all over europe; one man with 4-5 wives, 4-5 children each all living off of the government. It is a silent tactic to bring down the enemy from within. Like a plaque of rats.

When the catholic missionaries first came over to England after the Angles took over they found that many English women had more than one husband.

They put a stop to this as soon as they got the power to.

Men with multiple wives can breed more. 5 wives all pregnant at the same time.

1 wife, 5 husbands, only produce one child at a time.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

The main purpose of sexuality is procreation. The man is capable of undertaking several procreations with several women at a time, while a woman can undertake procreation with only one man.

The laws and recommendations of Creation state that that the men who develop themselves into being able to treat several women fairly, with equality and are capable of providing for them, have the natural right to have several women.

There are lots of reasons that you can find for the inception of polygamy. Regardless it ends the same as everything else in this world.....to control and be superior out of a need for greed and lust.

I have first hand knowledge of people who were raised in polygamy. There is not one positive thing I can find that any person brought from the experience. I only see pain and suffering - emotional issues that are insurmountable.

Regardless of it's intended purpose, polygamy only produces effects that are extremely harmful to mental and emotional health of the women and children that are a part of it. Should you ever speak with a woman or child who has been in this situation, they will all tell you it's wonderful because they have been brainwashed to say and maybe even believe what they are told.

Whats determined is how much Vasopressin that connects to the receptors the male has in his body. Vasopressin is the bonding chemical..

Human females have a lot of vasopressin, hence to carry and love their offspring. Human men have less then females but all men have some.

Prairie voles for example have more than meadow voles and thus are more monogamous, Human Men with low levels of vasopressin will be polygamous.

Science is great, isnt it?

Having less vasopressin in males aids in going off to war and exploring the planet, I think God made men this way in polygamy cause its the world we live in

However in a peaceful utopia, where there is no more war. human males can be made over with more vasopressin. but it might make is into Male penguins sitting on the eggs..

Re: Anyone Care To Explain The Reasoning Behind Polygamy?
It's simple biology and natural selection.

Men are hornier than women. We need sex more often than a woman does, and sex means more to us.

A man having more than one wife is a recipe for happiness. If one wife isn't in the mood for sex, odds are that another one is.

Polygamous males leave more offspring than monogamous ones. Over time, their horny genes became standard to the species.
