How to use polygamous in a sentence?

  1. Sound Choices Coalition:

    This is abhorrent to us, many polygamist victims and other Utahn's who recognize that religious polygamy, as practiced in Utah and around the country, is responsible for many serious human rights violations, most who are living in these fundamentalist polygamous groups and families, are treated as property, forced to work without pay, traded as daughters, coerced into having unwanted sex, and into giving birth to numerous children they can not care for.

  2. Jessica Christensen:

    I want people to realize there are polygamous groups all over the country… I want people to care and do something about it. I want people in Salt Lake to reach out to the families that they think are polygamous and do something, they are not just in Utah. There may be somebody in the group that doesn’t want to live that way.
