Polygamist’s Marriage

It’s all about love, isn’t it?

The Toronto Star has an article discussing the popularity of and problems sometimes related to Polygamy in Africa. I wonder why they didn’t also include Utah.

But for all intents and purposes, it would appear that some marriages turn out well for all concerned, but others have their own issues.

“He’s managed to tame all his wives. The man is a warrior,” says a commentator on one husband who has more than one wife. Maybe I should take lessons from this guy. I’ve always found it to be the other way around – women taming me!

Then there’s this little gem: “She is mean, and that’s why I am there for my husband,” Diatou says of her rival, to whom she refers only as “witch.”

Ah, could be any western family – daughter pitted against younger daughter, mom against daughter.. just another regular family squabble.

But with gay marriage ‘rights’ for all intents and purposes pretty much sewn up, we’ll have to let the polyamorists and polygamists have a go at it now. I mean really.. it’s all about the love, care, and compassion that could be possible, isn’t it?

Hmmm. I wonder what would happen if one of these “warriors” applied to immigrate to Canada, and managed to achieve all the points they needed – could he bring all of his “tamed wives” with him?
