Elsewhere I have said that I would accept a polygamous marriage. I have to qualify that acceptance. I would accept it in an otherwise non-patriarchal based society. Here in the US I don't thin it would work.

Though really, I can't imagine polygamy or any kind of marriage for that matter in a non-patriarchal society. The idea of men providing for and protecting women is itself patriarchal. All decent men should take a stand against a rapist, not just her husband.

Within a marriage or outside of one?

Yes, only a first spouse would be recognize as a legal spouse, but you can have ceremony and actually 'marry' more than one. I would consider those you had ceremony and a license for to be your spouses.

So again, is this inside of ceremony & license or outside of it?

Seems like a lot of things works outside of ceremony and license better than it works inside of it.

Have you ever thought that that instinct is simply part of heterosexual male feelings, and emotions that we even exhibit as children?

No child is born with an 'instict' to protect their family. You only believed that because that's what you been taught and learned under your religion.

Children are not born with a need to 'protect' their family but with something called empathy in that they don't want to see their family hurt or in physical pain.

Being a 'protector' is not an instinct, it is a learned societal response.
