  • If everyone involved is happy and wants to be in that situation, then I don't really see a problem with it. It's only when one partner is uncomfortable or reluctant that it becomes a bad thing. It's still not something I'm interested in doing though :P

    • No, you are wrong. Its why people dont truly live their religion in middle east. If they did, they wouldn't be like that

    • @hereiam_ all i have to do is look at the results.

      they are actively killing muslims and christians everyday. they are a muslim. just a different sect in a way.

      all these muslims try to separate themselves from the radicals. on my facebook, on the news but how many people who have an opinion learned about islam? how mohammed was? its like how the radicals are...

      peaceful ones cheryy pick what to beleive. they are more christian than muslim.

    • explain?

    • I'll do my best.

      The Prophet married four wives. The first was out of love and the other two were widows he wanted to help out if I'm not mistaken (financially etc.). Fourth was because his best friend, Abu Bakar wanted his daughter to spend her life with a honest and good-hearted man and Abu Bakar thought no one else but Prophet Muhammad.

      What we can learn from this is that the ruling that a Muslim man can marry four wives was more than just for lust and his own pleasure. Unfortunately some have used this to their own advantage.

      A man who wishes to marry more than one wife has to be financially capable and must treat each wife with equal love and affection. To this I say rarely any man is capable of being so equal. There will bound to be one he finds more admirable and worthy.

      No woman would want to share her love for the man she married. However, if the man wishes to do it for good cause, I think the best way to go with it is to properly discuss the matter with his wife first.

    • The prophet (peace be upon him) actually married 11 women, not 4.

  • Only if the first wife gives permission.

  • Yes, that is true.

    But the husband must treat each woman equally well and provide equally for each of them.

    My cousin is an architect and she worked in the United Arab Emirates and in Qatar and in Bahrain and in Saudi Arabia and in Lebanon, and she said having 4 wives was the norm there. Some had even more than 4 according to her.

    The sheiks there would even directly ask her to become their wife ! They had really never seen a tall blonde woman with blue eyes in real life.
    She ended up in prison on her first trip to Saudi Arabia for not wearing a head scarf, even as a foreigner ! O. o

    But the women don't have many rights in these marriages and in those countries : A man in this culture can legally divorce his wife by sending her an SMS with "I divorce you" 3 times.
    A woman would have to apply for divorce at a Sharia court, I think.

  • Said A, but I think the fact that he is Muslim has nothing to do with it. Polygamy is fine so long as all partners know and are content with the relationship.

    A man could have 4 wives if they want, and a woman could have 4 husbands if she wanted.

  • According to Islam rule, he can only marry another wife if his first wife agrees with it. and he has t give each of his wives each as much, be it money or sex.
    But not all Muslims follow their rules as strictly as people think.

    • @hereiam_ I was referring to the conditions under which a Muslim may marry four wives.
      Those aren't respected as strictly. (like many other Muslim rules)

    • Now i see what you mean, that's right. People are like changing the rules for theirselves (even if they know its not true)

  • I disagree. I think all men should be able to marry four wives. At the same time why can't women marry four men? Why stop at four? Why are people in such need to dictate what one does? Hell why can't he marry four guys or a woman marry four girls. Or any combination of the sexes like 3 guys and 2 girls? I have enough going on at my house for me to worry about who the neighbor is wanting to marry. If you don't like it it's simple don't marry into it but let others live how they chose to.

    Now if these are forced marriages that's a different topic and different rules would apply to that. Nobody should live in fear or be forced to do something they don't want to.

  • I'm muslim and yeah we can marry 4 wives but thats rare and in speacial cases only.. If the man is rich and wanna marry more than 1 , he must be fair 100% with both of his wives ( 99% isn't enough ) and his first wife must be okay with that and accept that , If she isn't ok with that the man can't marry another one and if he ignore her acceptance its haram ( Forbidden )
    For me as a muslim guy , i'll marry just one <3 ^_^

  • Thats not all muslims thinking. And thats generally for Arab people, its common there, not in Turkey where i am. And yes muslim males are allowed but its not something we do. I just would like one person forever.
    I guess that when that man's wife is like about to die, i mean she can't do anything, the marriage would be at that time (with other female) But i still wouldn't do that.
