The main problem if you're actually trying to treat the subject with the respect it deserves, anyway. If you view a harem of hard-bodied exotic women as a kind of reward you give a male character just for being awesome, or as a way to titillate your audience, it suddenly gets so much easier! :)
>That second part is probably a joke. I hope it is, anyway.
If I were to put my overthinking cap on, I would imagine that rather than a formal review board, social services keeps a very close eye on any polygamous arrangement that goes above four and seems to have a very, very lopsided gender ratio, in order to keep a lid on religious whackjobs or to let the IPO know that they think they've got a sentient trafficking organization on their hands.
(I think literally every CSI series, as well as NCIS, did some kind of 'using marriage laws to facilitate human trafficking' episode. Probably all of the Law and Orders, too. A bit too dark for CSI: New Avalon, tho.)
