What is Polygamy?

Polygamy is the practice of having more then one spouse at the same time. This is most often seen as one husband with multiple wives. However there are some cases of women with multiple husbands. Though there are polygamist in some areas of the United States the act of polygamy is illegal there. It is however accepted in many mideastern countries. I can’t imagine why anyone would want more then one spouse, one is enough for me.
