132. In the poly families I know
(and granted, they don't have legal status as such) there's not any doubt which are a particular child's primary parents. It's easy enough to establish which are biological parents, and it's generally not a problem of everybody wanting to claim they're little Johnny's daddy. That's really a straw man argument, and what a lot of people are ignoring is that there are MANY more people than you probably realize living in essentially polygamous families today. MANY.

Many other cultures have practiced polygamy - both polygyny and polyandry - successfully for centuries. Our way is not the only way.
