Why is Polygamy Bad?

Can somebody please tell me why Polygamy is not okay. But it is okay for a man to sleep with multiple woman, keeping in mind he is only married to one of them.

    Because women are like cars, they start to fall apart the more miles you put on them.

    If a man has one wife. She soon thinks she is his equal. This leads to fights. If a man has two wives. They are soon fighting each other & will bring you misery. If a man has 3 wives two will be friends & pick on the third. She will bring you misery. If a man has 4 wives it will be 2 against 2 & they will bring you misery. If a man has 5 wives. 2 shall be friend & the 3 shall be friends & they will bring joy to your home & life. But few men can afford to buy the 500 pairs of shoes they will demand.

    Polygamy is agreed upon by both parties. A man sleeping around without his partner knowing and consenting is just a cheater.

    Interesting that your question is in the Beer, Wine and Spirits category.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Level 7s are NO Longer able to move people's categories around.  That ended weeks ago.

      Some people on here are able to move questions around. I think you have to be level 7 to do ao. Some people do it for no reason. That could have been what happend.

    Polygamy skews the natural ratio of marriageable men and women. If one man can take 20 women as spouses, then 19 men must do without spouses entirely. For this reason, polygamous cultures have to deal with the problem of excess males, either through wars and conflicts or through ostracization.Polygamy is almost never polyandry. It's not about women's freedom to choose who they marry or how many spouses they have: it's about women being owned by men.In all polygamous cultures on the planet, women have extremely low status. All must obey their husbands, fathers, or brothers at all times. All are poor with few or no rights. In many, the women are virtual prisoners of their family compounds. Almost none get to choose who they marry, and many are married against their will to much older men. Moreover, the religions in these cultures assign women very low status, which teaches women not to expect more out of life for themselves. Thus, despite the polygamists' arguments, polygamy is not about rights: it's about the power over and control of one group by another.

    I'm guessing it has to do with having several families receiving government assistance.
