Polygamy was the practice of marrying multiple spouses at a time. Although uncommon among Humans, a few species like the Denobulans and Rakhari practiced polygamous marriages regularly. (ENT: "Dear Doctor", DS9: "Vortex")

Though difficult to navigate, some saw the challenges inherent in such a union as a positive thing rather than a drawback. Upon hearing about Doctor Phlox's polygamous marriage, consisting of three wives who each had two other husbands, Jonathan Archer commented that it sounded very complicated. Phlox replied, "Very. Why else be polygamous?" (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay")
