    Should we legalize polygamy under this sort of circumstances?

    In WW2, 80% of Russian men are dead, as a result, there was 1 man to every 5 woman, which is why today, Russian women are all very beautiful, because it was the more attractive 1/5 of women from that era, that got married and have descendants, today. But it mean, many women from WW2 to era, have no decendants and no children to take care of them. I think under this sort of circumstances, it is wise, to legalized polygamy to an extend, where if the 1st wife agree, a man can take up to 5 wifes, for that generation to help resolve this problem

    There are 142.9 million inhabitants in Russia, down 1.6 percent, or 2.2 million, from 2002 (145.1 million).
    Russia's population is shrinking and women still outnumber men by millions. The male population is 66.2 million, or 46.3 percent, while female is 76.7 million, or 53.7 percent. It shows that there are 10.5 million more women than men. However if you look closer to the figures, (before 35 years old there are more men then women).
    After that it changes due to a lower life expectancy of Russian men. Even in the U.S. women outnumber and outlive men as each generation gets older. The U.S. has around 319 million.
    At age 85 & older, there are more than (twice as many women) as men. I suspect if (women) wanted to share a man (they) would be making demands to have polygamy legalized.
    I also suspect very few men would be open to sharing their wife with another man. Polygamy opens the door for both scenarios.

      True, women are more open to the idea of sharing an husband with multiple  women, but few men would share a wife with other men.
