The only reasonable reason for the government banning polygamy/bigamy is due 
to inheritance issues. Does wife one get everything or wife two? Is it all 
split evenly between those wifes and their kids? Etc.

Personally, I say keep the government mostly out of that as well, seeing as 
religions defined that long ago. If they want something different than what 
the Jews or Mormons or whoever described, they can make a will, just like they 
would now.
