One of the two sane people at Polygamy 411, Jenny, came up with an interesting perspective today. The other sane woman Gail, (they are both non-muslims by the way) is unhappy in her marriage since her husband is a lying, cheating misogynist muslim who is forcing her to live an abusive life among her in laws. She is dreaming of her first, great love.
This is the advice Gail gets from Jenny:
If you were ever going to pursue this relationship with this man, do it when you are not married! Doing while you are married is insane and not of G-d.Second, what will you do to your children? Is it worth wrecking their home life so you can get an itch scratched? If that is the case, get a vibrator, and let your children remain happy. Once you have children, your life is no longer yours to do as you please. Your “happiness” comes secondary to theirs.Jenny is right of course. Basically.
However, Gail’s husband chose polygamy (behind her back, cheating and lying about it) which means he has said that having several spouses is ok. This then should naturally apply to Gail too. Her right to have a second spouse has been given her by her husband’s actions. “Doing while you are married is insane and not of G-d” is true I’d say (although I’m an agnostic and don’t believe in a particular god) but once one spouse has chosen to become polygamous, polygamy must be equally allowed. This is natural law “We believe all people to be equal”. Gail’s husband has given up all rights to have a monogamous marriage.
Jenny continues to state the rights of the children. This is so spot on! But it applies to fathers too! This is why a father who chooses polygamy automatically becomes an abusive father!
This is why no sane woman should ever marry a muslim man. Islam grants men the divine right to be abusive and absent husbands, abusive and absent fathers, destroying the lives of their wives and children.
The saddest thing about it is that there are women, brainwashed, warped and sick women, who propagate men’s right to destroy their children and wives, by claiming that a god would want it that way.
I am having a wonderful time, by the way. We saw sea turtles today!
