Polygamy is not the same thing as polyamory.

Most polyamorous circles of which I'm aware have a strong concentration of feminists. Almost all the feminists I've ever met take a very dim view on traditional polygamy.

And wouldn't polygamy in men be polyandry anyway?

Polygamy = many women
Polyandry = many men

I'm thinking a conservative Mormon site would be a much better place to ask about polygamy.

With respect, O thou sage and mighty Moderator ,

Polygamy is defined as " marriage in which a spouse of either sex may have more than one mate at the same time"

Polyandry is defined as " the state or practice of having more than one husband or male mate at one time"

Polygyny is defined as "the state or practice of having more than one wife or female mate at a time"

if the Merriam-Webster dictionary can be trusted.
