Good question. Why not?

There's no good reason the state should prohibit polygamy.


The little I've read about polygamy tolerant societies suggests it is an often dismal situation that is usually unfortunate for the women.

The primary problem I see in the USA has to do with property rights and endless litigation. When a spouse dies the estate issues are simple; the surviving spouse inherits. Adding a 3rd party to the equation is a HUGE can o' worms.

I'd imagine divorce and estate attorneys would love the work.
