This guy got me thinking, he really did, who am i talking about and what is it about this guy that triggered my sense and sensibility. His picture graced the front page of major main stream newspapers and he was almost ubiquitous even in the internet.
Guess you already knew whom i am refering to and the sensational news he created, about his polygamy and i loathe to mention his name here. Buangkan saja
I always am curious about what grounds or acceptable reasons that can really constitute to the legitimacy of polygamy( I am not challenging any religions that OK polygamy and i am not an expert in that field too,mind you)
Could it be the money and i mean a lot of it untill a man can tell his wife that look you are so nicely and lavishly fed month in and month out, and i have worked so hard to give you the best and now i want you to give me something in return, my second wife. Could money yield such clout over your wife who is so dependant on you?
May be it has got something to do with man's libido, i mean the insatiable one, the one a man thought we should indulge rightly or wrongly, i really dont know?
For example, i enjoy sex (which is true,)even till i am sixty and by then probably my wife is no longer interested in the ardour anymore, then can i tell my wife " Darling, ha Darling, can i go and have another wife because you dont want sex anymore right but i can still be up and running, and you dont want to see me deprived of my crave, right? could this be a reason ?
I remember the above was the reason my learned friend once gave me when i asked him about polygamy, his reason was because God knew very well that man's sexual desire was different from woman's.
Back to the sancitity of Marriage, i hold strongly to the belief that marriage is the union of two people, going through it no matter what, through sickness and health, through Pok Kai (no money) or through wealth and till death do us part.
Marriage is about love and the very fundamental of love can really conquer all even our own selfishness, marriage is about sex too when only love is manifested in the union and celibacy of it when love overcomes sex in a marriage.
Untill someone can convince me with the sensible reasons for polygamy, i still believe in the sanctity and the scaredness of marriage.
If i were a woman, i would despise polygamy no matter what the reasons, for marriage is truly about love.
