Polygamy is the practice of being married to several people at once. While adultery (having sexual relations with more than one person at once) is legal in most jurisdictions, polygamy is not legal in most countries.

Bountiful, in the Creston Valley, is a polygamous community in BC. Featured more than once in CBC documentaries, it focused the debate on polygamy in Canada. During the Canadian federal confidence crisis, 2005, the issue of same-sex marriage was considered to be a ballot question for many. The legality of other types of marital relationships was thus a potential powder keg.
