    Creating a legal framework for these relationships would help prevent the abuses that now occur. Leaving them as illegal means the people involved have no legal avenues to address their problems and everything stays in the shadows.

      I am unconvinced.  Moreover, it does not address the legal angle.  From a constitutional perspective, the government probably only needs a rational basis to outlaw polygamy.  limiting the economic advantages of marriage to relationships involving only two persons probably satisfies this test.
