What compelling governmental interest is served by banning polygamy?

My answer to What compelling governmental interest is served by banning polygamy?

Answer by Viktor Leberecht:

I can not see a government interest in banning it when the constitution of that country is based on individual rights. and neither can one of the leading lawyers of the USA, Jonathan Turley. He wrote an article describing the legal arguments for the legalization of polygamy.

The main argument, summing up why marriage is a human rights issue and why governments should not regulate the forms of marriage in the strict and narrowly defined ways they mostly do: “There is no spectrum of private consensual relations – there is just a right of privacy that protects all people so long as they do not harm others. “: One Big, Happy Polygamous Family

Viktor Leberecht is my pseudonym for my work as a free lance author. I work to ensure that the freedom to freely choose the form of marriage and family is recognised as a human right and that the voluntarily and knowingly entered-into polygamy is legalized as a form of marriage. You can find information about this on my website www.viktor-leberecht.com and my theses on polygamy and monogamy and much information can be found under the menu section polygamy. I am from Berlin in germany and viktor-leberecht.com is the english version of viktor-leberecht.de.
