    A lot of men complain constantly about the one wife that they have, so why would they want more of them?       :)


    I would onlly want 1 husband.

    Not in the United States. It does not matter what the religious beliefs are. We live by man's law and here in the USA man's law says no. 

    Your question is a little too vague.  Is polygamy acceptable to whom?  It certainly wouldn't be acceptable to ME!


    Me neither. If another wife came home, she wouldn't last too long. I'd give her hell and she'd run back to mother.

    He would have alot of explaining to do. ALOT!

    me either.

    the mormons seem to get on with it o k.

    It is acceptable in many places in the world.

          For a time, God did permit a man to have more than one wife. (Gen.4:19; 29:18 - 30:24) (Jakob,Solomon)

    But God did not originate the practice of polygamy. He provided only on wife for Adam.

    When asked about marriage, Jesus said: "He who created them from the beginning made them male and female and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh.'" - Matt. 19:4,5.

    Later one of his followers was inspired by God to write "Let each man have his own wife and each woman have her own husband." (1 Corinthians 7:2 )

    The Bible also states that any married man in the Chr.-congregation who is given special responsibilities must be a husband of only one wife. - 1 Tim.3:2,12.

    "Because of prevalence of fornication, let each man have his own wife and each women have her own husband." -1 Cor.7:2.  So there is no allowance for plurality of mates on either side.



    Yes; for a masochist.

    I don't know about poligamy really mean too some people? it seem to me when your having sex with your own children is that poligamy? or are they macking excuse for themself, I have read in the Bible that it was allow to have more than one wife,However that does not allow you to rape young children,I think we are evolve enough to know better,we are no longer cavemen for some of us,then they call this a religion taken away freedom of right. give me a brake !


    Polygamous or polygamy means having more than one wofe or husband.
    Incest means Sexual intercourse betwen persons related within prohibited degrees. (Children)

    facebook, you are referring to incest

    Bob/PKB!are you saying that incest is the same as polygamy or that some people don't know the differencen?

    Polygamy - well difined by sheryVW in her comment - does not imply incest - sex between a parent and his/her own daughter/son. These are two completely different things.

    I am thinking about the two daughters who gave their father much wine at dinner. They then took turns bedding him.

    Polygamy was a way of life until the Quran was revealed 1400 years ago. When the earth was young and under-populated, polygamy was one way of populating it and bringing in the human beings needed to carry out God's plan. By the time the Quran was revealed, the world had been sufficiently populated, and the Quran put down the first limitations against polygamy.

    Polygamy is permitted in the Quran, but under strictly observed circumstances. Any abuse of this divine permission incurs severe retribution. Thus, although polygamy is permitted by God, it behooves us to examine our circumstances carefully before saying that a particular polygamous relationship

    Not acceptable to me at all if I ain't the one and only I'll be the none thank you very much!

    You must adore mothers in law......

    Do whatever works for you, if it don’t work so well you’ll know and that will be that. Laws, rules and decrees are expressions of what others found true for them and passed along. They are suggestions that evolved into laws. Our history has a lot about it that proves itself true every day. Its really stupid to ignore our heritage.

    No, it is not acceptable and or legal  in the countries belonging to the - probably politicaly incorrect term - western world -  as well as other countries such as China.

    The definition of polygamy according to Webster dictionary is: "The condition of having more than one wife or husband at the same time."  This is not acceptable since there will be  confusion identifying the father of a women's offspring, however, man has been given permission to practice polygyny which webster's dictionary describes as: "The marriage of one male with more than one female."  Restricting the marriage of more than one wife to man alone.  Considering the number of single women in society today not only is it wisdom but necessary.


    You must be male.

    How would men feel like if it were permissible for women having more than one husband?


    I don't know about the gays,but there would be lots happy women out there.

    My wife says it isn't acceptable. Me I 'm  not sure  I wouldn't like it doesn't seem a bad idea to me at all. 


    Not for me , I couldn't control the one I had .  


    That comment sure explains why you "had" and don't "have". Maybe you'll be able to "control" the next one! do you attempt to do that?

    I was thinking a chastity belt but law prohibits it without the womans permission

    more than one wife........only the brave........ or stupid.

    Polygamy is for men. As a woman, it is not acceptable but tolerated no matter what religion because the women (Islaam) cannot say no. If the man can afford it without depriving one of the women in his "Harem", it is for the man to do so and work towards the communal welfare of his "wives" and the women to say okay, if they are allowed to say okay. Polygamy was after the introduction of a law. Before that it was Mistresses or concubines and acceptable as a life form. Now it is proving too expensive fortunately. But on the net are stories of men with 39 wives, and one with 50. That covers the 52 weeks in a  year I guess :).

    Sometimes in some cases. Example after war. Another example is  the wife and lover of husband is very good friends.

    What is more important? Morality or Life?

    upto four wives are allowed in ISLAM

    It is entirely dependant on one's moral and tangible standpoint. This is a conundrum that has existed since time began. Economic practicalities permitting, there is nothing to prevent two or more "consenting adults" to co-habit outside the confines of matrimony. The whole concept of democracy is "freedom of choice" therefore common sense MUST deem this practise permissible! AMEN!
