Less Than 50% of U.S. Households Now Led by Married Couples
For the first time ever, the percentage of married households fell below 50 percent, according to the Census Bureau, which released a brief Wednesday about families and households from the results of the 2010 Census.

The percentage of married households fell to 48.4 in 2010, down from 55.2 percent in 1990 and 51.7 percent in 2000.

1 Corinthians 7:33
"But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife."

Ephesians 5:31
"For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh."

They don't have to. If 1 Cor. 7:33 and Eph 5:31 speak of one's current marital status, they still speak of "a man," "his wife," in singular terms. There's no way to interpret these in polygamous terms.

You are right in that they do not state "Thou shalt not have more than one wife." But they do not allow for more than one wife at the same time, and cannot be interpreted to make them say otherwise.

There's a verse prohibiting a pastor from having more than one wife. But these verses only speak to one's current marital status. They don't state, "Thou shalt not have more than one wife." Polygamy is lurking around the corner (especially a Romney Administration) with a very weak biblical argument against it for the masses in the pew.

Now that no-fault marriage has had its way with the Christian family; same-sex marriage is barreling down the pike and since there's no apparent prohibition against polygamy in either the Old or New Testaments, what other bulwark will Christians erect when, in the not too distant future, legally-married polygamists (in addition to married gays who) desire to join our churches?
No other bulwark needed. When did it become the authority of those who want to join a group, to establish the rules of the group?

In any case,
1 Corinthians 7:33
"But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife."

Wife, not wives.

Ephesians 5:31
"For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh."

A man, his wife, they two, (not they 5)

When one looks at those statistics, it is the height of foolishness to call the United States a Christian nation. To Tie the Knot or Not: A Biblical Study of Marriage and the Single Life, is not even a question to ask when children are involved and as such parents have a responsibility of raising those children together, Instructions to Husbands, Fathers and Their Wives.
