A few requirements must be met for this arrangement to function.
- The man needs to have the funds and resources to finance this enterprise.
- He needs to have enough time to take proper care of each of his wives.
- He needs to have a strong code of ethics to be able to treat his wives with respect and to satisfy their financial, emotional and social needs. Not every man is fit for this arrangement.
- Must find women who are completely open to the idea and who will agree, which is almost impossible in this particular society and at this modern time. Polygamy is practised in other parts of the world where women aren't subject to particular social influences which make them reject the idea. Some women from particular cultures and societies will accept this and will be open to it (not forced into it). It largely depends on the prevailing societal norms within a particular region.
It's clearly not for everyone. But under the right circumstances, which I have outlined above, it can function very well within certain communities and societies.

It's really great because you don't have to restrict yourself to just one wife. You can enjoy the company and sexual pleasure of a number of women simultaneously while acting within a morally acceptable way. Under a legally binding marriage contract, and within a situation where you can find a number of women who accept the idea of being married to the same man, everyone is satisfied and the man is able to benefit greatly from this arrangement without breaking any moral boundaries. It's the perfect situation, it diminishes the temptation of infidelity while allowing the man to operate strictly within accepted moral boundaries. You're able to gain multiple benefits from more than just one woman, which provides greater satisfaction in theory. And I'll say it for the umpteenth time, all of this occurs within morally acceptable boundaries. No rules are being broken. Perfect situation. And I'm a man.

even though i'm incredibly anti-monogamy, I don't think i'd ever go for polygamy either (i don't want to get married, and if i did i know i'd get jealous and a bit pissy if i wasn't the center of attention (i'm too narcissistic for my own good)) but if it works for someone, and all parties are consenting, it's something i would support.

"Polygamy" is not limited to polygyny. Under a system of gender equality, there is no good reason to deny that we must keep evolving until an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, monogamy or polyamory, race, or religion is free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (and any of those without the others) with any and all consenting adults. Polyamory, polygamy, open relationships are not for everyone, but they are for some. The limited same-gender freedom to marry is a great and historic step, but is NOT full marriage equality, because equality "just for some" is not equality. Let's stand up for EVERY ADULT'S right to marry the person(s) they love. Get on the right side of history!
