Yes, and then parts of Sharia will be incorporated into state codes in matters of marriage, divorce, inheritance etc.

If I recall correctly, there was no limits to the number of wives a man could marry among Mormons; and that women could also have multiple marriages.

One practical consequence of the absence of limit is that it will lead to rich men marrying unlimited number of women leaving poorer men wife-less - just like the late Sassanid period in Iran and the Mazdak Revolution.

I think Jews from the Cohen family can marry more than one wife.

And the Baha'ai also are permitted 2 wives.
