Default Polygamy and survivalism?



Advertise Here

I am wondering what role polygamy has in the survivalist movement. I have read that many of the people who are into this form of living are also survivalists -- expecting an eventual collapse of the government. Yet for those who are not into it now, if world events left our current legal and societal infrastructure in shambles would polygamy be an option to re-build civilization?

My wife said she was ok with it but wasn't sure if I could handle her having more than one husband.

Monogamy and Polygamy are exactly the same- One wife too many.

Polygamy would be great, till one ol' lady got pizzed, and decided to cut off your sack for a coin purse.

Really, I think that in a post SHTF situation, the trust between a man and a woman would be the most important thing going if the family unit is to survive. Start adding an extra guy or gal to the mix, soon things would fall apart.




That, and the wife is reading over my shoulder as I type

I understand, but after the 30 Years War so many men were killed that:

Quote:
"On February 14, 1650, the parliament at Nürnberg decreed that, because so many men were killed during the Thirty Years’ War, the churches for the following ten years could not admit any man under the age of 60 into a monastery. Priests and ministers not bound by any monastery were allowed to marry. Lastly, the decree stated that every man was allowed to marry up to ten women. The men were admonished to behave honorably, provide for their wives properly, and prevent animosity among them."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygamy

So if we indeed entered a phase similar to the one described above then it would almost be a biological and cultural necessity to enter into such arrangements.

Once a total collapse ensued, I'm sure male/female couples would sprout out of nowhere. In times of desperation, people need other people, and they'll choose partners they may have totally ignored in todays society. I'm sure repopulation wouldn't require polygamy.

Just my opinion though...

Many probably consider me a narrow minded right wing extremest, but I'm keeping the door open on polygamy, it's the one area I'm open minded.

the combination of people wanting to have sex as a mean of consolation in their lame lives and the lack of birth control ways will repopulate the earth. like the guy above me said , one example of these conditions is africa

I don't think it would be considered in a SHTF situation. Yes, people will have sex, simply as a stress relief, and that's what couples do. IMO I think that multiple partners might happen after the million/billions have died off, and everything has become settled for several years, simply to help repopulate, but prior.... I dont think so.

Think about it, do you really want to help multiple women give birth, when you have no hospital to go to, and your med kit probably doesn't include everything needed for multiple childbirths over several years? For instance, do you know how to sew up a vaginal to anus tear? How about possibly doing that for multiple women? What happens if the baby gets stuck? Now you possibly loose mother and child. Now your "group" has lost an asset. What about the massive bleeding that happens frequently during/after childbirth?

Eventually you will run out of supplies. I prefer to save my sutures for wounds.

Remember, prep for the worse, hope for the best. Stacking the odd against you isn't the best idea.....

Personally, I am happy with my 1 wife, and very happy with the fact she has her tubes tied!

I would love to have multiple husbands.

1 to cook and clean
1 to make the money
1 to tend the crops
1 to tend the farm animals
1 to do the carpentry work

Ohhh the life I could live. I could do just as I please.

I hope everyone knows I am just kidding.

Northidahofisher, our pioneer ancestors did all the things you mention, and so could we. Also, we have things like medicines (hopefully people have things in their storage) that we did not have availability to over a hundred years ago -- and knowledge( i.e. how many women died from childbirth due to ignorance of how infections spread?).

Also, multiple wives means multiple needs for food, granted, but it also means more people to produce needed items as well as a larger population in your "tribe" if we do indeed go back to a tribal existence. Population is an advantage in the individual survival game and it is absolutely essential in the demographics aspect of survival.

my generation won't change but you may have noticed a change in younger people - they will bonk anyone or anything with little or no emotional investment. They're all turning sexually um adventurous in a way my generation wouldn't have been seen dead doing.

So my gut feel is give society a couple of generations and they'll all be having group marriages of all configurations regardless.

I would say that shtfs usually make societies more conservative however, so I suppose I have to conclude that polygamy/polyandry are more likely to happen if s does not htf, than if it does.
