Polygamy Isn’t The Main Problem
What is your sentiment toward the polygamous family? what do you speculate toward the kids that lived in a polygamous family and women that are been in a polygamous family? polygamy is commonly defined as a martial system in which one man is married concurrently to more than one woman. Nowadays, polygamy is expanding its own way. Yet it is not necessarily the ’main’ problem, there are plenty of problems that subsist here in the world. even though polygamy is also a problem considering the kids that are receiving the inadequacy of love and the women who got treated unequally. Still, Polygamy isn’t a big problem here in modern society. I believe a lot of countries, nationalities, religions, families have resisted polygamy.
Firstly, we could see that some countries and religions already resist polygamy bonds. for example, in Africa polygamy may be punishable by six months to three years imprisonment, or a fine of CFA 50.000 to CFA 500.000 ($80 – $800), in China polygamy, is illegal under the marriage law passed in 1980. here in Indonesia are allowed at several places. Almost a dozen countries do not permit polygamous civil marriages and recognize polygamous marriages under customary law.
Secondly, some religions have resisted the polygamy bond. The Bible states in the New Testament that polygamy should not be practiced by certain church leaders. 1 Timothy states that certain Church leaders should have but one wife: ‘A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach’. People in Christian are not allowed to have more than one wife/husband. However, some people still supporting polygamy bonds.
Third, some people are fine with polygamy. as long as polygamist men/women have a wealthy life that can provide everything equally. However, some people resist polygamy. Because they believe that the capacity to love is limitless, and they found it unfair, so they refuse polygamy. During times when the female population was higher than the male population, polygamy was common so that each female could have a sense of financial stability from a husband. the reason is to prevent same-gender marriages. Polygamy was accepted throughout societies because of the need for a woman to have a husband to financially support her and give her a family.
Overall, it’s very clear that polygamy isn’t the main problem. Do you see the climate changes and destruction of nature that cause global warming? It is the main problem that we’re facing now. Do you see how many people are suffering because of income discrimination? And also poverty that happened right now. We need to put our focus on the problem that happens globally.
