Can Christian Nigerian Men Have Several Wives?

We all know that Muslims can go up to 4…but how about Christians? And how common is it…

i know several christian men who have more than one wife. mostly in orthodox churches though, cos pentecostal churches frown at polygamy. if a man is already a polygamist u dont expect him to divorce one or more wives because he wants to become a christian. besides the bible says ministers/pastors must be husbands of one wife. i don't think it's a problem with non-minister christians. of course, if u're already a christian u probably can't go after more women than u already have.

From the begining he created them male and female, one to one. Polygamy is against the tenets of the christian relgion even thogh some go against it. God's standard does not change

@poster,

Christian men will hardly marry several wives cuz its against his religion,so they answer will be no with some very few exceptions and even then they aren't real Christians if they do marry more than one wife.

Yes, it has everything to do with Religion and most Importantly, morality.

If he's a Christian . . . .Nah, he can't, 'cause he isn't permitted to.

One man, One woman.

i think this has more to do with the individual, rather than religion.

so my answer, NO.

but some self proclaimed christians probably still engage in this activity, but its not religion.
