Thesis 5: Even people who prefer monogamy because they think this way of life to be the right way to live love and partnership must have an interest in making polygamy a legal form of marriage or family-life.
If monogamy is made madatory by law or religious rules it is always in danger of degenerating into a forced system. A freely chosen monogamy, at least per se, is no control system but can be a wonderful way of living your life together. But this freedom as well can only be achieved if every person may freely choose whether to live monogamous or polygamous, because only then is the choice for monogamy a freely made decision.
