Putting aside that sharing a husband (not a man) but a husband, the person you are building a life with it must be impossible, when talking about polygamy first thoughts coming to my mind is how can the man afford it and why would any man what to have to deal with wives in a household?

Looking at the numbers, the understanding of polygamy changes, as poverty and polygamy occupied the same geographic area; Africa.

As of 2018, Africa has the smallest piece of the pie in the world’s regions by total wealth chart coming at US$ 2,6 trillion. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Niger, and Senegal leads the countries where polygamy is morally acceptable by 87% and 86% of their population respectively. Guinea Bissau on the lower end with 19% of acceptance. Trailing behind in the Middle East – North Africa, Palestinian territories at 48% on top and Tunisia with 28% at the bottom of the list.

As strategy polygamy aims at better living conditions for the participants.   It is very common for people living in countries with a huge piece of the pie mentioned above to have the same goal when choosing a marriage partner.

Families doing the best they can; no harm there.
