Well some ppl just think u get to sleep with more than one wormen, but the guy also needs to be able to take care of his wives and kids as well in such a relactionship. But I guess it dpends if it's a religious thing, I heard of where the wives take care of one guy >_<

Well, whatever. I can't say whether it's bad or good :\ In some cases it's used for good. The people in Africa do it so that more children can be born and basically help out. So maybe, it's both? Or just good? I haven't researched it much. I just read about it recently in an article about Africans at school. Seemed useful to me.

I think there are misconception about Islam on Polygamy.
Polygamy is of two types "polygyny: where man marries more than one woman. "Polyandry: is where woman marries more than one man.
In Islam Polygyny is permitted but Polyyandry is completely prohibited.

Islam only permits limited polygyny. Many Non-Muslim even amongst some Muslims there are misconception that a muslim must marry 4 wives. It s not. polygyny is an exception and never mandatory.

lets look at God 's verses in the Holy Quran in the chapter (surat-ul nisa (the women))

Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that
ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one.”
[Al-Qur’an 4:3]

the verse says if u cant deal justly and fairly with all of them then marry only one.

Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women....”
[Al-Qur’an 4:129]
Therefore polygyny is not a rule but an exception.

Lets analyze why polygamy has to be practiced in some situation

4. Average life span of females is more than that of males


By nature males and females are born in approximately the same ratio. A
female child has more immunity than a male child. A female child can fight the
germs and diseases better than the male child. For this reason, during the
pediatric age itself there are more deaths among males as compared to the
females.
During wars, there are more men killed as compared to women. More men die
due to accidents and diseases than women. The average life span of females
is more than that of males, and at any given time one finds more widows in the
world than widowers.

World female population is more than male population

In the USA, women outnumber men by 7.8 million. New York alone has one
million more females as compared to the number of males, and of the male
population of New York one-third are gays i.e sodomites. The U.S.A as a whole
has more than twenty-five million gays. This means that these people do not
wish to marry women. Great Britain has four million more females as compared
to males. Germany has five million more females as compared to males. Russia
has nine million more females than males. God alone knows how many million
more females there are in the whole world as compared to males.

Marring a married man preferable to becoming 'public property'

In Western society, it is common for a man to have mistresses and/or multiple
extra-marital affairs, in which case, the woman leads a disgraceful, unprotected
life. The same society, however, cannot accept a man having more than one
wife, in which women retain their honourable, dignified position in society and
lead a protected life.
Thus the only two options before a woman who cannot find a husband is to
marry a married man or to become 'public property'. Islam prefers giving
women the honourable position by permitting the first option and disallowing the
second.
There are several other reasons, why Islam has permitted limited polygyny, but
it is mainly to protect the modesty of women.

This sort of law made sense at the time in Islam because many women's husbands were killed in all the fighting. They were left without husbands and, in that society, needed a man. There weren't enough men to go around.

Muslims have told me that, these days, even if they're permitted to marry more than one woman in their country they don't because "it's too much trouble." I think it's probably kind of rare in most places unless you're a rich guy who just wants to show off and marry four gold diggers.


yup u said it much better than me

Polyandry doesn't make much sense for purely physical reasons. One man can get several women pregnant but if you have several men and one women, not only does she not need several men to get pregnant but nobody will know who the father is. I think it's primarily for this reason that polyandry doesn't really exist.

Polyandry DOES exist in some societies.

Technically it does exist in the our world today but not openly; the two/three timing babe who has one boyfriend she plans to marry for his money, the 2nd guy for bed issues and probably another for intellectual stimulation.


My recommendation: Polygamy and Polyandry to exist in perfect harmony.

i think polygamy is a not a dream come true, it's more of a nightmare. if you think one girlfriends are a pain, imagine 5 wifes nagging you all day long.

wow. You're not very intelligent, I was being sarcastic. in both my replies. If you ever saw me around the threads. You'd know i was joking since i always reply with stuff like that. Plus you're stupid if you think i'm interested in having your respect. You're someone i dont know over the internet. I could care less. Not that i would have a three sum in the first place. If you read my first post, you would see i'm against it. But alas, i can see you're not very intelligent or else you would have seen that, or atleast caught on that i was joking. *sigh* the stupidity.. (--______--);

if you read the bold, which you DELETED before quoting me. You'd see i was joking. And please go and take your respect somewhere else. like i said before i'm not interested in anyones respect over the internet.


Nice sarcasm. Firstly i actually never had any respect for you; you actually annoy me. I just wanted to say that line for fun.

"im against it. i think it would be a hassle to be with a husband with another wife sleeping in the same bed as us.

edit:

Now your third sentence was good sarcasm, because it actually seemed like you were serious to me, and also for the fact that threesomes may be a completely different subject to polygamy. Also your first line said "sleeping", which in my mind thought had nothin to do with a threesome - (just checking if you meant it in that way).

And finally, I don't spend my time on the forums looking at your comments just to see how sarcastic you are / attributes in a forum; i only read this comment since it was on page 1.

------------------------------------------------

oh and i'm glad you were being sarcastic aswell :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

btw ( i know this is off the subject), you think i'm dumb for falling for your sarcasm; you've fell for my sarcasm once y'know, and my sarcasm was quite obvious.

first of all i said sleeping because i was talking about polygramy, and how weird it would be for three people to sleep in the same bed. Second of all, "i just wanted to say that line for fun", riiighht. And like i said, i'm not interested in gaining your respect. Nor do i care if i annoy you. If i annoy you so much, then just stop quoting me all together. And lastly, if you really did read the first page, You'd see that i wasnt the only one being sarcastic on about this topic. Sakiya even quoted me herself, saying the same thing.

oh and one more thing. Even though i would never be involved in threesomes. I see nothing wrong with it. What ever floats someones boat


Yeah stupid enough for me i even read that and thought she wasn't being sarcastic.

I actually honestly never had any respect for you. That line is fun to type, just to liven up my quote.

I quote people because either i intend to discuss the post, support a post, or, what i do mostly is if theres a comment that annoys me, ecspecially if the user who created the post annoys me.

Also, i quoted your comment to assure if it was true, which i found out was just sarcasm (thank god).
