How can I tell my husband about polygamy so that he understands that it is wrong...he thinks its their religion and beliefs and that makes it ok???any advice please
Wrong by who's definition? Yours? Society's? God's?
If yours, that's your opinion and hope fully he'll respect that.
If Society's, please, our culture changes it's ideas about what is right and wrong more often than they change their under wear.
If God's, I've yet to read any where where God said it was wrong. On the contrary, I've read where he dealt with polygamist very kindly, calling them blessed and his friends.
Polygamy in the United States is wrong because of the laws that have been passed because of that society's moral culture.
Polygamy in other countries may be okay because their culture has different morals which allow for it.
Though we may be against polygamy, we must allow other cultures their right to function as they choose. Only when their life styles endanger human life should we interfere.
Just because something is a religious belief doesn't make it ok. Radical Muslims think their religious beliefs tell them to be suicide bombers and crash planes into buildings. That's not ok!
Now polygamy is not on the same scale as this but hopefully it helps illustrate my point. Religious beliefs are not all created equally and are not all valid.
tell your husband that polygamy is fine with you, but you believe that it should be one wife with many husbands. that should stop the discussion. actually, it is against the law and it demeans women. putting the stamp of religion on something does not make it correct.
Well it really depends on how you view it, I dont necessarily think it is wrong if all parties agree, but if they don't then it isnt even about that anymore, it's about the fact that the husband doesnt respect his wife enough to take her feelings into account...
Polygamy is a federal crime in the US.
