Traditional marriage, love, Polygamy
The traditional people believe that a marriage is legitimate when two private souls come into an agreement to stay together. The legitimacy of their agreement is validated by their families. Certificates are not viewed as proving to support these agreements. Marriage is sensible when it is limited to one man-one woman. However, most traditional marriages allow polygamy i.e. marrying more than one woman. Traditional marriages, however, strongly oppose marriages of one gender (Willard, 2005).
Supporters of traditional marriages give various facts to support their arguments. One of the main issues given for support of traditional marriages is the opposition of same sex marriage.Those who oppose this marriage promote discrimination, hostility and prejudice towards gay and lesbian citizens. The right to love the person of choice and the issue of polygamy is what revolves around traditional marriage. This paper addresses the issue of choice of love and polygamy as presented by traditional marriages, giving arguments on either of the stands that can be taken concerning the issue. Polygamy involves marrying more than one husband or wife. In this case, interests are focused on a man having more than one woman.
[...] Nature repeats itself, but so does monogamous marriages too. Even with this argument, it is a fact that a marriage is not only a base for the family, but a source of joy for the parties involved. Different types of marriages have the right for support from all the resources that can lead to happiness and living a healthy life. It does not matter the number of partners that are involved in the marriage. Questions on the legality of a woman's sexual and romantic decisions should not have any grounds on legal cases as it remains a personal decision (Jillian, 2014) Supporters of polygamy argue that it is a way of containing infidelity.

[...] From a Christian point of view, polygamy is seen as a lesser legitimate form of marriage, unacceptable and a sin because it is taken as a form of adultery. In the beginning, God made only one man and one woman (Genesis 2:22). Marriage is made to be monogamous as there is no any mention of more than one person from the two sexes. There is enough evidence in the Old Testament to substantiate polygamy as a lesser form of marriage. Biblical records depict negatively the people who violated the laws of God on the subject of marriage e.g. Abraham, Jacob, David and Solomon. [...]
[...] Many countries that prohibit love of feminism grounds do it on grounds that it degrades women. In my opinion, this argument is misguided. Instead, polygamy gives the women the respect that they deserve. Women have the right to make choices. A woman can always make a choice that suits her interests and if she is not forced into it or if it is not against the law then she has a right over it. It is a personal choice to marry a man or another woman of whatever kind. [...]

[...] Traditional marriages did not allow the marriage of the same sex under whatever grounds. Polygamous marriage can even be used to 3 TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE curtail the rising issue of same sex marriage. Many countries should even embrace it as a rule as same sex marriages have never worked like opposite-sex relationships do. People were never created to have same sex relationships; even the religious sources clearly state that. Despite the laws, the entertainment sector that portrays the support of such relationships and the misguided educational programs that encourage this tradition, it has left many people miserable.
