Does A Man Need More Than One Wife?

Do believe a man need more than one wife? In fairness to all the women out there, I don't think a man needs more than one wife. This are my opinion. Now what do you people think?

How can 2 work together except they agree?

The beauty of marriage other than companionship, procreating e.t.c is the ability to strenghten each other especially as it relates to financial intelligence.

How can you know your financial capability if you cnanot be honest about your salary?

My husband and I review our net pay periodically, agree on spend - expenses and monthly savings expected from each other as well as our short to medium term investment outlet.

Do not underestimate the power of this and a double source of income.

A man who wants to cheat will cheat, even if he has three wives. If the only reason he's keeping three women are for their vaginas, then I say good luck, cause I will bet that even three vaginas will not stop him from running around outside of marriage.

As much as I do not support the practice of Polygamy, I still believe that not all men who practice it have concubines.

Men who practise polygamy have concubines as well. So your argument becomes null and void.

The Bible never condemed polygamy in a way. There are a thousand and one reason why a man might decide to have more than one wife. I think its better to be honest with yourself and live up to your responsibilty if you are a married man and you meet and fall in love with another woman. I support polygamu 100%. Such men are being true to themselves.

Which one is better marry 2 or more wives or marrying one wife and keeping a chain of girlfriends?

why do most of you reply with such pride in their inability to pronounce the english language correctly. This only gives the racists reason to believe we are inferior to them. Please be proud to know the english language and stop acting like NIGGERS. I am ashamed when i read 'dat' and 'dem' and other lazy, dumb responses

As for a having many wives, a man had better know what and who he wants for a wife, but he must remember, he will always be physicallly attracted to others.

well, according to the old testament, if your brother should die and leave behind a childless widow, you should either take her as your wife or at least impregnate her (to carry on your brother's linage).

Now, according to the new testament, we are all brothers and sisters in christ. So, therefore, people should feel free to marry widows, in addition to their current wife/wives.

@Kismat, Lasun,

The question says does a man need more than one wife....simple answer ..YES or No. All the excuses u guys are giving are just complete bullocks. The question was not reasons why men should marry more women ...duhhhhhhhhh.

What concerns a mans need with the ratio of men to women.

Kismat, the day i marry a muslim, it must be the end of the world.

I see rather differently,how many Nigerian Husband are faithful?our women prefer us hving girlfriends rather than bringing them home.If you are a muslim,nothing wrong with you marrying more than one wifeif you follow the rules.Secondly if all men are to pick one wife,what will happen to the surplus?abi women no plenty pass men?wetin the extra babes go dey do?snatch other people husbands?I see bring them all under the same roof legally i.e if you are a muslim.God is wiser than all of us

pretty, knowing how difficult it is to deal with my wife, i wouldnt think of getting more difficulty by getting another. But my religion is very considerate. take for example after the second WW, millions of men died and left behind millions of women with children/no children. What does your bible/religion say about handling such a situation?

It is impossible for any one human being to satisfy all the needs of another, unless the person whose needs are being satisfied is in a persistent vegetative state - then their needs are either just being fed and cleaned - or none at all.

If a man feels the need to have more than one wife, he shouldn't have married the woman in the first place. Only marry someone you're in love with, being in love with someone to the extent of wanting to spend the rest of your life with them means that you find your companion, the person who fulfills all your needs... And damn, since when have men become such high maintenence?

In the same vein, a woman does'nt need a husband. She can have as many husbands as she wants.

a man doesn't "need" a wife, therefore he can have as many as he "wants"

It may be easier to seperate the needs from the wants .

And even being clear because sometimes what we think we need may not always be best.

Whocares, so long as it suit her to share her body to as many men as she wants, I want to agree she is entitled to more than one husband. Truth is, a woman body is sacred and it has that kind of respect which make them a woman and should therefore not to be touched by every tom and harry, No wonder our society do not look down well on women who shared their body with many men.

And what about the woman who has a higher sex drive than her husband?

Does that make her entitled to more than one husband?

@ NduGod

and If the cause of the couples' inability to have kids is the mans fault, Pray tell, what then?

Does the woman get to go out and get another hubby? Please I'd like to know!

Yes in a situation were by the couple are not able to have a child, and it is discorverd that it is as a result of the wife inability. a man should here, have another wife if he can not wait unto God as a result of family presure or otherwise.

Please NO if the man have every thing a blessed family should have, as in child.

i personally think it should be one man one wowan, but then most nigerians guys think otherwise.

Most times they have a wife at home and still have lots of girlfriends outside.......its a real shame that they do that.

is sex so important that it can determine whether or not a couple stay together or monogamous? i thought relationships were about support, caring & patients. If sex or sexual gratification is critical to a relationship, then the interests of the couple are misguided.

That's why 'waiting untill marriage' is not such a good idea

maybe the two decided to wait until marriage for sex and thus did not have any idea there would be such a difference in their urges.

Wao real interesting response on this topic. i read someone said not all men cheat. well maybe some are just too smart not to get caught. I think men have more raging hormones, and some people cheat out of pressure and some out of lust. I still think all a man need is one wife. but man shall not live by bread alone.

One must devote themselves to their wife. if they have a lot of love to give, they should start a family and use their spare love on the children.

If they still have an abundant amount of time and effort to give away they may adopt more kids, or start research in to how to cure cancer & A.I.D.s out of love for their society. there is no real excuse for polygamy just lust.
