Historically, this was done in order to achieve a more melodic rising scale, hence the name "melodic minor". As a result the IV and the V chords both have major 3rd. Again, changing these notes also affects any other chord that those notes are use on. As well as each mode of the scale.
These are the harmonies that result from the melodic minor scale.
And these are the modes of the melodic minor scale.
