Polygamy – Freedom or subjugation
As Muslim Sharia councils in Britain report an unexpected and “dramatic” rise in the number of Muslim men taking second or third wives the rest of Western society continues to see changes in relationship choices too.
Gay marriages, extra marital affairs , mistresses, common law wives and co parenting are all on the rise. The impact on the traditional institution of heterosexual marriage is bemoaned as a loss of British and Christian values as well as one of the causes of family breakdown.
So is the rise in polygamous marriages a threat to Western values or is it just another reason for some to stoke what’s become termed as Islamophbia.
Is it, as many feminists argue, primarily a mysoginistic practice designed to subjugate women.
