I haven't seen anyone say this yet...

Would anyone actually WANT 2 wives, or 2 concubines? I Love my spouse with all my heart, but there is no way I could physically or mentally balance two women.

And that's not to say 1 negative thing about women. Simply that I could not handle 2 different personalities, sex drives, needs, wants, reproduction desires, styles, tastes, life views, personal hygiene, favorite tv shows, expectations for social gatherings (parties, friends over), types of friends, personal things they don't like about me, etc. etc. etc.

What I'm promoting is polygyny. 

What?!  Have I logged into the Twilight Zone, here?  That's what I get for not being on the forum much for a few days.  Carry on.

Maybe the laws regarding physical relations also have to do with ownership.  Father has rights to daughter, she is his property until she becomes married and then the ownership passes to the husband. 

I would like for my second wife to be very physically voluptuous.  Because usually that is a sign of fertility.  If she looks like Venus Williams, well then that would be awesome.  We’re praying that the right woman comes along soon.

Memphis, using the logic you have presented here, saying that our OT patriarchs did it, you could also say owning slaves would be perfectly fine today.

love,

I noticed Mr. Muchos Mamasitas Memphis has been ignoring my posts despite the fact he claimed in the opening post to have started this thread to discuss this topic with me specifically.

I find that ironic.
Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.  — Psalm 128:1-3

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. — Psalm 138:2

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. — Colossians 4:6

Memphis Dwight,

All I can say is I think you need to take a good look at your heart in all of these things you have been posting, here and in other threads.

A man is to love his wife with agape love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.

I hope you treat your wife in the way that God would have you treat her. 

Looking at what you've posted makes me believe that you are trying to justify being unfaithful to your wife.  You're looking for loopholes, and you're at the prime age for a mid-life crisis/fling.  Your wife deserves better.  I hope she knows that.

The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble.  He cares for those who trust in Him.  Nahum 1:7 (NIV)
His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Lamentations 3:22b-23a (NIV)

The trouble is that many sects who do have this marrying several women thing treat their wives like servants and their wives have little or no say in anything. They are certanly not allowed to ask their husbands not to have another woman,or to have any say in what their own needs or desires are or what they want. The are bought up to think that the man is  never to be questioned about anything and they have no say in anything that goes on. This is how it works for the man. The women are usually brainwashed into thinking that this is their lot in life and just to get on with it.

I STILL want to know what would happen to the millions of men who would be without wives if others had 2 or 3. Could you answer this memphis?In the sects where this goes on, the young men are chucked out of the families at a certain age so that the older men can have the girls and there are none left for the young guys.
Ugh, makes me feel sick.
In Him I live and move and have my being.

My determined purpose is that I may know Him - that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly."

Statistically, that would not happen... "millions of men without wives"... as it's been recorded for decades that women outnumber men in the world.

I think those who are chucked out of the cults are better off... they can go find normal wives and marriages.  IMHO.

Is he really serious?  If he is, about multiple wives, I'll never take anything he says seriously again.  Give me a break.

I would love to have two or three wives.

Because of this I believe you will go to any length to justify polygamy.


Because of this I believe he is just a glutton for punishment.
taller, better looking and smarter . . .

They turned me loose from the nervous hospital.  Said I was well.  Mmm hmm.

Suffering for your beliefs is called faithfulness, making others suffer for your beliefs is called being a jerk.

His cross, like the ark in the wilderness, is the center around which his people are to encamp; so that they cannot separate into factions, or withdraw from each other, without retiring at the same time from the presence of the cross.

The thing is, a bunch of guys having more than one wife means that there will be lots of guys with none.  If three women have the same husband, how is any of them having her own husband? 

"Let each woman have her own husband"?  Any volunteers to take on Janet Reno, guys?

Apparently, there are about equal numbers of men and women born now.If there are more women born it is usually only about one percent more. If there were many many men who wanted 2 or 3 or 4 wives, then there would be many many with no one to marry.

In the early years of this country, certain men and women who considered themselves Christians made exactly the same arguments you are making:

It is in the Old Testament.
It is accepted in the Bible and appears to be approved by God.
It is “natural
