Polygamy was long been practiced by the most successful men; however, it seems more and more that there are mediocre (socio-economically, and looks-wise) women who are claiming "poly."
I believe this is becoming more common for a few reasons. One of the reasons is that feminism has framed monogamy as something oppressive, and women who embrace it are often compared to slaves. Second, is that society has punished men from taking the lead in the relationship, so many men now either share or render leadership to the woman. Women are notoriously capricious, they change their mind, they want a little taste of this then of that, so when a guy does this the girl becomes more likely to pursue attention elsewhere (after all, who is going to punish her?).
Lastly, the rainbow mafia (LGBTQ) is drastically increasing the number of "legitimate" sexual orientations, which are also (if labeled a sexual orientation) protected from criticism. SO, all a girl has to do is claim poly, and she's allowed to do what she wants without punishment. Furthermore, women are the most radical proponents of ideology, and among LEFTISM, prime status is gained by embodying some sort of niche identity, which again pushes them to take on one of these- which also explains the rise in the number of bisexual women and "pansexual."10
Its been pretty common in a lot of places out west here. For a 100+ years, and I can't say it is harmful except when underage girls are forced into it, which is very rare.
Those that I've personally met are happy with the setup.
Polygamy doesn't seem to be more common now than before by other poly relationships seem to be getting way more common.20
Yea it’s getting common but only in Muslims, and it’s not harmful at all.0
What Girls & Guys Said
yes that's how it's gonna be.
as far as it is becoming harmful for society? yes and no. yes because women will be satisfied and not have to complain about lack of hot men when they can share that hot men with multiple other women. no because some women have to share and their egos can't handle it while some men will be left with nothing and there's nothing more dangerous than a man who has nothing left to lose. now multiply that population by millions perhaps billions of men with nothing
basically it boils down to what you prefer. capitalism or socialism. socialism would guarantee everyone a partner but many women won't be happy because they'd be tied to a man they don't find attractive regardless of his personality whereas men can be happy because men "can" love a woman unconditionally.
capitalism will only favor those who are gifted and blessed to be the chosen ones. of course hard work can help a guy overcome his position within the hierarchy but at the end of the day, not every man can become a winner. there's always going to be winners and losers within capitalism and that includes women.14
Women want a handsome, 6ft+, educated, successful guy who makes good money and has a dick like a firehose. Very few of those about so average women will either have to share if they are not willing to settle for an average guy. Ultimately it means for soceity that there isn't enough women to go around which is why in fundamentalist religious cults like Mormons a lot of the young men are kept uneducated and used for cheap labor in their teens and cast out if they become involved or competition for or with the wives and daughters of the married men.0
Just seeing the faces of these people tells me they're not ok.
There is such a thing as ruined physiological health.
It's hard to find genderbenders or practitioners of similar shit that look healthy.
Of course disease is being normalized.20
Yes it's not a good thing. If people can't make one relationship work, how can you think that multiple could work? It will be a bad deal for most involved.10
I don't think it's becoming more common. People are definitely becoming more vocally open about it though.20
Well since there is so much excess women around. And incels continue to claim they can't get them. . . we might as well indulge ourselves!!!0
Nah I think its just becoming more apparent, which is good.
Polygamous people should date polygamous people and monogamous people should date monogamous people.0
It is. Because it's sexist. There's man with many wives, but if a woman did the same she'd be a slut.0
Certainly not in talked about society. Maybe cohabitation because of housing crises is increasing, and maybe that leads to polygamy. As long as everyone consents.0
Polygamy is a blip on the screen, IF that, and even if it wasn't, it presents NO dangers to anyone. It may even be better!0
I don't know. I certainly feel polyamory and open relationships are. I don't know if it's harmful or not0
No polygamy is less common now than it was in the past.0
It's very harmful, in my view. But I don't see it being more common, at least not in sane countries.0
Polygamy and spousal abuse go hand in hand. There is no mutual respect for one another in such relationships.0
If everyone involed in it is ok with it, then I dont see any problems. It's even cool that people can be more open minded on these ancestral topics0
If it is, I'd rather remain single until I drop dead.0
No, I don’t think it is…. we are just more aware of it and see it online / on tv.0
Polygamy, the practice of having multiple spouses, is less common now than it has been in the past and is not widely accepted in many cultures and societies around the world. In most countries, including many in Africa and the Middle East, polygamy is illegal.
However, there are some communities and cultures where polygamy is still practiced and considered acceptable, particularly in some parts of rural Africa and Asia. These communities often have different cultural, religious, and social norms that support the practice of polygamy.
It's important to note that in most societies where polygamy is practiced, it is only allowed for men to have multiple wives, and not the other way around. This form of polygamy, referred to as polygyny, is a subject of controversy and criticism from advocates of gender equality.
The impact of polygamy on society can be a subject of debate and is often influenced by cultural, religious, and personal beliefs. Some argue that polygamy can be harmful to society because it can lead to unequal distribution of resources, such as property and finances, among spouses and children. This can result in poverty, insecurity, and instability within families and communities.
Polygamy can also contribute to the marginalization and oppression of women, as they may not have equal rights and opportunities as men. In many societies where polygamy is practiced, women are not allowed to choose their own spouse, and they may not have a say in the distribution of resources or in decisions that affect their lives.
Additionally, polygamy can lead to high levels of competition and conflict among spouses, which can harm relationships and cause psychological and emotional harm to individuals, families, and communities.
However, others argue that polygamy can provide benefits and stability for families and communities, particularly in cases where there is a shortage of eligible partners. In some cultures, polygamous marriages are considered a form of protection for widows and orphans, and can provide financial and emotional support for individuals who might otherwise be vulnerable.
