There are quite a lot of (Western) guys who keep dreaming about various polygamous arrangements while simultaneously complaining about Western women, gold-digging, the state of marriage and how the family can't survive on one income so that their wives have to work.
Those same men often complain how modern women are delusional and overestimate their attractiveness, while they themselves seem to be living in a dreamworld of their own making.
Apart from the question whether polygamy is allowed in the Bible (I believe it's not, but let's say it's irrelevant for the present discussion), how are they planning to support four or more wives if they can't afford to have even one at home? Here comes the most ridiculous part of the whole scheme: some of them are so deluded that they imagine themselves staying home while their wives go out and earn the living, which is truly pathetic, in my opinion.
Polygamy, as we all know, is practiced in (certain) Muslim countries, so how does it work? First, to be able to marry at all, a man has to pay a bride price and it can be very high. It often happens that poorer men can hardly afford to marry at all, while wealthier men have several wives. Second, if Western women are supposedly gold-diggers then you surely haven't met any Eastern ones.
Here is an article by an Iranian man (warning:language) which throws some light upon marital arrangements in his country. I'd just like to quote a part of it:
The husband is, by law, responsible for every dime spent in a
marriage. According to Islamic law, the husband cannot ask his wife to
spend a dime, or even consult her on how she can spend her money. Money
for the expenses of life is called nafaqa, and the husband is
mandated to give that money to his wife. She can sue her husband for not
paying, and the court will order a monthly amount to be paid to the
wife by her husband as her nafaqa.
Here is an even more interesting part: The amount of nafaqa depends
on the class of the woman, but is mandated that it should not be lower
than her standard of living prior to marriage. Meaning that if she used
to have maids, the husband now should pay for maids. This helps to make
it clear that in Iran, “deprivation” of a wife from her husband’s wealth
is illegal...in Islamic laws, a woman’s possession is her possession, but a man’s possession is the family’s possession.
The author of that article isn't thrilled with such patriarchal arrangements. Something tells me that the men who complain the hardest about life in the West wouldn't like Islamic patriarchy, where the man is responsible for everything, either.
Guys, be careful with what you are wishing for!
