Where does this social welfare function find a maximum along the parent axis? I don't have a problem with letting people try it and finding out.
I don't see much point in debating polygamy given that there is no serious effort to legitimize it, certainly nothing to compare with the sweeping mainstream movement to legalize gay marriage. People who bring up polygamy as an argument against gay marriage either are playing games or they're particularly cynical. Folks in the latter camp are also the ones who invoke the heinous bestiality canard.
