Arb3a zwajat ( Four wives)?
Islam allows men to have up to four wives, but in a certain conditions and the first one is that if he can treat each other equally. In late our times, there r only few in Golf Area which will have more than one wife.Life is becoming expansive and the responsibility to provide minimum one house,one car , gold jewelery sets, boundary holidays , food, clothes, house items, money pocket , to each wife and many more things, not to mention the 4 extended in laws families who also need attention ....
Nor in the greater demands of the modern working place with a good salary , many aspire they can satisfy more than one partner in equal share , but here is not about the money , it's also about the emotional psychical comfort and though only wives will let u know on this secret.
As i said it's not only about the expanse,while law permits four wives, muslims has tend to become more monogamous , even 2 centuries ago no "man of quality" will make use of this and no "woman of rank" would suffer in it.
In fact in Golf regions, women r far more empowered than might be supposed, and i guess none will like sharing her husband and his income.
Here in Golf , if the wife doesn't like something , she can and often make the man's life a misery , and as controller of the households , often co-opts the childrens into her camp.
Divorce is easily enacted and it's becoming less of a taboo, especially in United Arab Emirates , Oman, S3audi Arabia and other khaleeji countries, becoz woman will end up less our days.
In some modern golf families , women r educated , usually hardworking at college than man and therefore more successful in the working place.
They r entitled to earn and keep their own income beside her husband support.
Many western christians nations think our marriges r different than they have, in fact Arabian woman or a Muslim woman enjoy a great deal of liberty, and often a great deal of power in their families.
The respect shown by husband to the wife and mother is it sanctified in Islam.
As a final response to some of insolent questions is that NONE FORCE A WOMAN TO ACCEPT AND BE INVOLVED INTO A POLYGAMOUS MARRIAGE !
