😍 Do You Agree With Polygamy?
Polygamy is when a man is allowed to marry more than just one women sometimes the number of wives can go up to twelve. Polygamous people view this part of their religion. I can not say I agree with it handling one lady is more than enough for me. Also I believe a relationship and or marriage involves two people and no more. What about you how do you view polygamy, what is your opinion on it?
Hi Shane, great question!! Personally I don’t really care either way as it doesn’t affect me. The man and the women are all adults and can decide if that works for them. Its not for me how to judge how others live their lives. Although twice as much nagging – have to be a strong man or a sucker for punishment!! 🙂
Agreed very much so I was actually again as always watching a program about the subject and was just wondering how others may view it I personally also really do not care what others do decide to do with their lives however it does seem like a challenge for polygamist couples it all just seems crowded to me.
Plus its a commitment for the man if his wives are at home and he has to work to feed them all and all the kids!!
Gareth could you imagine the expenses of having such a large family it must be so expensive and all that on top of an over crowded relationship.
Polygamy is a personal views and decision.For me if i have money to take care of two wifes and are able to do my duties as a man i will marry two wifes. Unfortunately for now i can’t do so and i can’t say anything about others private life.
There might be many reasons for polygamy but the main reason is lust. Many wives agree their husbands to take another woman in order to avoid fighting in a family , arguments and may be divorce in worst scenario. No woman can accept extra partner in their life. Due to some very strict religious teaching many wife’s not against their husbands wish to marry another women.
Do you want to say divorce is in polygamous families only?
Eli I think think the divorce rate may be higher but it certainly does not just happen in polygamist relationships and or marriages Ramachandran does have a point the jealousy of sharing your partner with someone else is a reality and polygamy in a way is all about sharing and many can not be happy with that so it makes sense that polygamist marriages are more likely to end with a divorce compared to less crowded and or normal marriages. However this is definitely a subject that I will investigate further and will get back to you with more accurate statistics as I am also wondering how the divorce rate is affected.
Polygamy, although illegal in some countries, has been practiced throughout human history. It\’s an arrangement between consenting adults but it\’s said that very few are relationships between equals. The women involved in such arrangements are usually emotionally vulnerable. Their weaknesses are exploited by the polygamist who is usually rich and powerful.
Polygamy is illigal in most countries in the world.
The practice of polygamy reduces or degrades the quality of their children
I totally disagree with polygamy. Polygamy is wrong before God and also before men. It has caused serious problem to families in Africa.
Yes, I do. There is nothing wrong with polygamy as long as you can afford to meet the needs of your family. But, personally, I will never do that. 😀
I respect the fact that it may be cultural/religious thing and as Gareth mentioned it does not affect me and it is illegal in most western countries.
I also believe there are rules around the practice if you are a member of that culture/religion.
I am a product of polygamy, but, i do not and will never agree with polygamy.
Very interesting if I may be so bold as to ask what was it like to be raised in a polygamist family? I am not asking because I am with it or against it the subject just really interests me and your first hand experience with polygamy is certainly interesting and that you could explain the situation to me a lot better than any internet research can.
I neither do or don’t, because it’s a personal decision of the person that does it. It’s not a wise decision either, because it impacts a lot on finances if one has not prepared well before taking it.
I agree, because it is personal decision, if you really are able To handle all things that goes with polygamy it your choice, no one have to blame you, polygamy has been happening since the beginning of the world.
If you can satisfy all of them go ahead, but I’m sure no one can love two wifes at the same way, you will love one more than other, this will create lot of issues and trouble. I personally like polygamy if i had lot of money to take care of them and they children they will give me.
I have no right to judge one for its decision to marry two or more wifes. What i hate in polygamy is that no matter how right you are, You will never love your wifes at the same point.
Most successful full men in Bible were polygamous like Jacob,David,Solmon etc.Even today ,most people who are rich , have many wives.It shows that they are hard working people.In my community no person with 2 or more wives without land ,but I always find men with one woman, having no where to put a single house
This is also true, if you have many wifes,it means you have lot of responsibilities and duties so it will push you to work hard, to solve all the problems of your family and wifes.
Why not when the husband is very fair to his partner? However, in several cases that I have encountered, the husband cannot really be fair to his partner in terms of time, wealth and even affection. What do you think?
Polygamy has started since the beginning of the world, if you can satisfy all of them, and fulfill all the responsibilities as a husband, you can do and life your life, comfortable.
I am a product of polygamy, but, i do not support polygamy in any form. My late father was lucky enough for his home to be in peace even as he married 2 wifes. Many polygamous family are in deep crisis.
Please would you be so kind as to share your experiences with us and explain in more in detail about polygamy I have replied to one of your previous comments explaining that you really will be able to explain the hole situation much better than any research I can conduct seeing as you have had a first hand experience with polygamy.
I don’t agree with polygamy even though I am a product of polygamy. 95% of family where the man married 2 wives are in deep mess. Problem of jealousy will affect the children from their mothers.
