Why do I care? See above picture...now I just have to convince my husband AND Rob Pattinson to move to Tibet.
P.S. How wrong is it that you are now a more educated person because I have an unhealthy obsession with Robert Pattinson? I mean, really, there is no way you knew what polyandry was before this post ;)
P.P.S. If like flutterbyblue and myself you find yourself pondering the philosophical and evolutionary/biological basis for polyandry, I recommend the Wikipedia article on Polyandry in Tibet and the Zementa articles below
