Polygamy, Adultery & Out-of-Wedlock Relationships

December 26, 2010

What is the difference between polygamy, adultery and out-of-wedlock relationships? Which do you think is morally correct and which is not, according to your beliefs?

In my opinion, I think that it is wrong for a woman to have active sexual relationships with more than one man. If she conceives, who is the father of the baby? Can a marriage continue if the woman is engaged to more than one man? I cannot picture that. Why is polygamy viewed wrong? Is not it somehow similar to the common practice in the West of a male having more than one female sex partner or lover? No one can deny that both exist, rather we should ask ourselves which is more commonly practiced. So, why become so tense when polygamy is discussed but not come to mention out-of-wedlock relationships? If the man is able to treat his wives equally, give them equal provisions and spend equal time with them, is it comparable to a man who cheats on his wife and enjoys romantic adventures with his lovers? Do they feel any guilt?
