"Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same." --Oscar Wilde

"Bigamy, n. A mistake in taste for which the wisdom of the future will adjudge a punishment called trigamy." --Ambrose Bierce (The Devil's Dictionary)

A Mormon acquaintance once pushed Mark Twain into an argument on the issue of polygamy. After long and tedious expositions justifying the practice, the Mormon demanded that Twain cite any passage of scripture expressly forbidding polygamy.

"Nothing easier," Twain said. "No man can serve two masters."

In hindsight the bigamist saw
His arrangement was not without flaw.
Since he'd gotten re-wed
He had less of the bed,
Not to mention two mothers-in-law.
