UK legally recognises multiple Islamic wives

Albert Rogers

I do not know why a man needs more than one wife, if he chooses the first wisely. But if a polygamous marriage is in fact exclusive, it should at least permit lovemaking between the wives also. It will still mean that there are young men excluded from having full sexual relationships.

But if a man is permitted to have more money than he can possibly spend, why not more wives than he can bossibly ..ah .. spend time with?

I agree totally with you tunisian girl.If the first wife knows who her husband is with , then its surely better than her being in the dark and him sneeking away and keeping second or subsequent wife.

I really hope that all the countries start to think seriously about allowing polygamy, at least with conditions. Polygamy can solve many problems in our world if it is applied correctly.
They ban it with the pretext that it is against women's right etc...but at the same time they do not punish the adultery; this is what we call hypocrisy! I am not talking about religion here but about morals and logic: most of the men even happy with a first wife have a huge need for a second or a third one, so why not legalizing it under reasonable rules!
