All we have really established is that polygamy would not be the right lifestyle for you Sister River, and this is your right. This lifestyle certainly should not be forced on those who are unwilling, and unable to practice it. Although I subscribe to the notion of polygamy, I am in a monogamous marriage, and don't see myself in any other type of relationship (I have not met another woman who even compares to my wife). Indeed, I can only afford to take care of myself, my wife, and my daughter. If I attempted to engage with another woman, any money I gave to her would be taking food out of my family's mouths (which is a crime). This is why laws of polygamy require that a man be able to provide for all women & children equally. If a person is unable to do this, then they can not practice polygamy (whether they "believe" in it or not). In a true polygamous marriage two different women would have two different houses. Therefore being in each others hair would not be an issue. I will say this though...most people who object to polygamy are looking at the institution through the eyes of the "Western" world...which you should not do. Just because a practice is not within the guidelines of the West doesn't mean that it is immoral.river said:Women get along better when they have their own territory and are not in each other's hair. Being married to the same man is not going to make a difference.
