    I personally couldn't care less about polygamy. If you want three wives, or 20 wives, (or 20 husbands) and everyone agrees with it, then who cares?

    People are way too into everyone else's business.

    Yeah. I'd like to see my husband try. I think he already has his hands full, though! But that's us. Others can do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned.

    Wait, what?? Oh, you've never heard of the 'marriage penalty?' Yeah...my husband and I would pay less in taxes if we weren't married. It has to do with the way deductions are calculated, and it is a pretty common problem.

    I've never heard of it either. My husband and I definitely get a tax break for being married. Lots, actually, because he doesn't work.

    No, never heard of that, but I can guarantee that if I made as much as you and your husband combined I would pay more taxes than you.

    Are you referring to federal taxes or state taxes? We don't have a state tax where I live, maybe that has something to do with it? Just taking a guess here. I am not familiar with all the tax codes/laws in every state.
