    Maybe many people may disagree with me, because both of them are your husbands, but I think it is. I think of marriage or even a of one man and one woman. I suppose if for some reason, although I don't see this happening, I you're only having sex with one of them, then it's not. I can't get the idea of being married to more than one person. If there are more than one person that you can say you love, maybe marriage isn't for you. I have a girlfriend, we are living together in a house we bought together. I love her. I also have a friend I met in college. We became very close. I love her. But I'm not inlove with her and she 's not in love with me. And we haven't had sex and never will.

    In your other question, I said this:
    There are many Old Testament examples of the problems polygamy can cause.

    However, there are specific cases in which it seemed to work more or less. Remember that ALL of the sons of Israel received of the God-given blessing (except Reuben), regardless of the fact that they came from multiple mothers who were married to their father at the same time.

    As a Latter-day Saint, I believe what The Book of Mormon teaches: that strict monogamy is the general rule, but that God will command His people to practice exceptions for a time when there are extenuating circumstances (i.e., there are significantly more faithful women around than there are men to marry them).
    The only thing I would add to that would be that I really can't think of any realistic instances in which polyandry (one woman, multiple husbands) would be socially advantageous the way polygeny (the opposite) sometimes is.

    Christian Wedlock.

    Can a woman have more than two husbands?

    No, a woman cannot have more than two living husbands.  A man has no choice, as he must be in wedlock with one wife.  But a woman has three choices.  Firstly, no wedlock with a husband.  Secondly, wedlock with one husband.  Or thirdly, wedlock with two husbands.  That’s it, there are no further choices for a woman, and there is no choice at all for a man.

    1 Corinthians 7:2    King James 1611.
    Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

    Yr. 1783.    10th George Prince of Wales Own Hussars.        (King George III).
    Yr. 1898.    19th Alexandra Princess of Wales Own Hussars.    (Queen Victoria).

    Therefore two women can own a regiment of cavalry, and two men can own a regiment of cavalry.

    1 Corinthians 6:16    King James 1611.
    What! know ye not that he which is joined to a harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

    Therefore in the New Testament a man and woman lying together are one flesh, as follows:

    A husband and wife who lie together by carnal copulation shall be one flesh.

    A fornicator and fornicatress who lie together by carnal copulation shall be one flesh.

    A man and common courtesan or common prostitute who lie together by carnal copulation shall be one flesh.

    (A common prostitute is a woman who commonly offers her body for acts of lewdness for payment.  An act of lewdness can never be an act of carnal copulation, as it is blasphemy to state that the Angel Gabriel and Mary committed a lewd act.  The common law of england states that it is impossible for any woman to be a prostitute under any circumstances, but that a woman may continue on to be a common prostitute.).

    A fornicator/fornicatress and adulterer/adultress who lie together by carnal copulation shall be one flesh.

    An adulterer and adultress who lie together by carnal copulation shall be one flesh.
