Polygamy: Louisiana City Legalizes It & Polygamists Line Up

In a real-life Sister Wives polygamy event, a city in Louisiana says “yes to the dress.” Afterwards, several people line up to take multiple brides and grooms.

It seems that DeQuincy, Louisiana, isn’t satisfied with the notion of monogamy. Polygamy is the word of the day, as several super-couples begin their lives together.

Louisiana’s aforementioned city sees no issue in the matter. Actually, Mayor Tom Downey has a profound statement, according to News Examiner.

“There’s no gosh darn reason that if a man loves a woman, and another woman and another woman and maybe even another woman, they shouldn’t all be allowed to get married.”

Just to clarify, this has nothing to do with religion or Mormonism. This is simply polygamy at its finest. The town mayor goes on to state how he wants the rest of the state and other states to follow in his footsteps.

“DeQuincy is setting the precedent on polygamy in this country and I can only hope that other cities and states follow our example that we are setting.”

This new polygamous law comes from a man who put a citywide ban on discussing a dress’ color, punishable by a $500 fine or 30 days in jail.

So, for this Louisianian city, polygamy should come as no surprise. Though there are no federal laws against polygamous marriages, each state has a ban on them. However, supposedly, city law may supersede that of the state on this go-round.

What are your thoughts about polygamy? Do you think the rest of Louisiana should follow? If you could, would you be in a polygamous relationship as well?

  1. I think if a man and woman, and another woman, and another woman, and another woman, and another woman, and another woman really love each other, then why shouldn’t they all be allowed to get married?
