Netherlands recognizes muslim polygamy....

If the marriages take place in countries where polygamy is accepted, then it is ok...
Although polygamy is banned in the Netherlands, the marriages of Muslims who have several wives are recognised by Dutch authorities.

Registrars in the major cities, in particular, record dozens of bigamous or polygamous marriages per year. These marriages are prohibited and an offence in the Netherlands. However, polygamous marriages that take place in countries where more than one wife is permitted, such as Morocco, are accepted, newspaper NRC Handelsblad reports.

If immigrants with several wives settle in the Netherlands, the local authorities register all the marriages. However, the Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS), where all marriages are registered nationally, removes these bigamous or polygamous marriages from its files, on the assumption that administrative errors have occurred. As a result, it is not known how common the phenomenon is in the Netherlands.

I don't imagine we will be long behind on this.

The definition of marriage in Canada is not anchored on any substantive premise anymore. Who is to say those in Bountiful or the Muslims in Toronto do not have the right to expand the definition.

Lets just say the defenders of 'marriage' have left the field. Perhaps the same sex lobby will carry the ball from here on?

The Islamic Republic of the Netherlands will be the first in Eurabia. Fascism will make a big comeback in Europe, aboriginal Europeans are already fleeing since they're tired of having their children beaten in school by packs of Muslims.

The same sex lobby are defenders of marriage.

They have nothing to do with polygamy.
