No. I don't recommend it at all. I think polygamy is evil.YahooChatIslam1 wrote:Cassie Wrote:
60/100 means, 60 men to every 100 women. Does it justify polygamy at all; at any ratio? Would you recommend for every 40/100 women?Besides, a 60-100 ratio doesn't justify 4-1 polygamy.
1. Does your verse say it is only when the ratio of males to females are imbalanced? No.YCI1 wrote:Perhaps you do not know the content of the verse in question. The pivotal point in the verse is:It wasn't a 25-100 ratio, was it? It was a 60-100 ratio as you claimed. Hence you are completely wrong.
1: Justice must be the driving force, because it is written 'marry only 1 if you can not do justice'. The verse does NOT say "EVERY man MUST marry 4, NOT 1, 2, or 3." Your interpretation of 25/100 is against the verse.
2. In a society where the ratio is close to 1:1 polygamy of any number is evil.
3. So why 4? It's arbitrary and polygamy is still evil.
You haven't shown the link between polygamy and children born out of wedlock.YCI1 wrote:Cassie wrote:
You have misunderstood what I have said. Bastards have always existed throughout history. I pointed out particular sharp increase of 22% at the end of 2nd world war and abundance in women. Do you not to see the correlation? If 22% of new generation being born out of wedlock was the norm in history then please quote some examples in support of your case.Your second assertion about the 22 bastards out of every 100 children is a non-sequitar. How does that even prove that polygamy has anything to do with children born out of wedlock?
So what if there was a 22% increase in bastards at the end of WWII? Are you saying that a child whose father is a polygamist is better for the child? Your Muslim thinking is showing again.
