    I believe it served a purpose in ages long passed, but in our modern world I am not sure. If people consent to it, then it seems to be alright, but the system allows for so much abuse. Just look at polygamous communities in the Western US.

    One wife nagging you is bad enough, imagine more! I am sure Howard would be very willing to comment.

    It is in some parts of Africa... (4give me 4 generalising..don't know which)..but that too would be a headache...don't u think? poor woman would have to tactically deal with all of them!
    " I love you more darling...all the kids that I have ever given birth to...are yours"
    How would you be able to tell if you belonged to a poor family..and couldn't afford DNA testing?:confused:
