I believe that two people get married because they love each other. Our society today is in love with the idea of love. Almost everything revolves around love and your significant other. Ever since we were little we have grown up watching fairy tales and love stories, and little girls grow up planning exactly what their wedding is going to be like. We grow up wondering when we are going to meet "the right one". Many people believe that there is always one person for everyone and the idea of true love. Others believe that you have to be in the right place at the right to time to meet the person that you are supposed to be with and there is more than one person for everyone.

In most states polygamy or bigamy is illegal. These terms are very similar and go hand inhand with each other. Polygamy is the practice of have more than one wife or husband at the same time. Bigamy is the act of going...
