Is it illegal for a woman to have more than one husband?

Home » More Thailand dating blogs

Polygamy, the act of having more than one spouse, is a practice that is generally not accepted in most countries. It can involve a woman marrying more than one husband (polyandry) or a man marrying more than one wife (polygyny). In some countries where polygamy is legally recognized, it is often associated with certain religions, such as Islam and some sects of Mormonism.

In the United States, polygamy in any form is typically prohibited, with varying degrees of legal consequences. State laws invalidate marriages involving more than two spouses and can lead to annulment. Annulment is a legal process that declares a marriage null and void, as if it never existed. This can occur in situations involving bigamy, incest, or marriages where one or both parties are underage.

Practicing polygamy is considered a criminal offense in most states, punishable by fines and jail time. The federal government has historically passed laws to prohibit polygamy, particularly targeting the Mormon Church in the 19th century. Constitutional challenges have been raised against these laws, arguing that they infringe on the right to religious freedom. However, courts have generally upheld the bans on polygamy as constitutional.
