Cool Should man be allowed to marry many women?

Nowadays we (gentlemen) are not allowed to have more than one wife. But as far as I know, in some countries, man could marry more than one woman as long as he could afford to feed them.

What do you think?

Should man be allowed to have more than one wife? For me, why not?

I'd say no as this only seems to happen in countries where women are viewed as secondary.

Think of it this way, in this (supposedly) world of equality, would a man be happy if a woman had many husbands?

Well, it could help out some people. Can you imagine if some nice rich guy who was genuinely trying to be nice went and married someone so he could make sure that she was taken care of. I mean, as long as you can be fair about it and stuff, and since the main benefit of marriage is for financial and insurance reasons, why not?

If he went into the relationship knowing that this was going to happen, why not?

@Waffles

Your words weigh and i agree with the intention you mentioned, but cant say that it's good for a man to marry many women.

Why not? If all parties involved know what is going to happen, and everyone's fine with it, and every gets taken care of (equally in the sense that all are comfortable) they why not?

Rightly explained waffles and that's y just placed some REP to your post. As i earlier said that your say weighs. You're quite rational and i totally agree with you. But when i think emotionally, getting a bit femminist then my emotional thinking covers the rational thinker inside me. But don't worry my vote goes to you, coz after all m' a rational person (though emotional for a short span ).

If a man were allowed to have many wives, then should not a woman be allowed to have many husbands?

If you say no, you have a problem.

"Marriage" is a religious construct that typically defines itself as the union between one man and one woman.

So I'd say that anyone, male or female, can only have one spouse, by definition.

However, as long as they don't get all hung up on semantics, I think it's perfectly fine for one man to co-habitate with many women, or one woman with many men, or several men with several women ... as long as there are no children involved.

I added that last bit because children have a hard enough time learning what it takes to get along in this world without needing to wrap their little heads around a highly unusual domestic situation. ("Who's your mommy?")

Of course, this is a very broad statement designed to accomodate the generic nature of the question. If you could point out a bunch of people who are engaging in this type of practice, then we could take a look at the individual circumstances and render our completely irrelevant judgement on them based on a more detailed profile.

Being judgemental is fun!!

I would say NO. It might result in damaging the society with their marriage by bringing more illiterate, poor, and in many cases starving children to the society. LOL!

Y'know ... I'm retracting this. I think children should be exposed to alternatives to the nuclear family. Hell, I was ...

One woman for one man is not just an ideal concept but the most practical and rational. I believe there is a soulmate waiting for everyone out there..
