Can't we separate the issue of child marriage from that of polygamy ?

If adults want to enter into a 3-way marriage then why stop them ?

It seems like overkill to disallow the practice because of the actions of this one cult.  If we want to balance security concerns with freedom, there are other examples where we balance those concerns out. 

I have some examples but they play out on a larger scale, and maybe that's the issue.  I can't think of another one where a wider freedom is disallowed to protect a small number of people who may not be entering into an agreement willingly.

If you can't tell, I am not convinced of either side on this one.
