Chinese Emperors too had several concubines and some of them never got to spend even one night with the emperor. But these days it is different:
 
In China, the policy of one-child families coupled with selective abortion of girls has produced "surplus" males. Such men are called "bare branches," and China could have 30 million of them by 2020. Perhaps polyandry'women with multiple husbands'would be the logical response to the situation in China. What will happen instead is that these lonely, wifeless men will end up sleeping with a relatively small number of women'prostitutes'with severe risks of sexually transmitted disease all around.


it's not only chinese emperors, some chinese officials or who belong to a family of nobility or a rich family often have more than one wife and a lot of concubines.

even though they apply the rule of one child policy today in china, there are still many people who have more than one child especially those who can afford it. i got a friend from china who has 7 siblings.
 
I think those extra kids do not enjoy concessions and welfare. I rural areas there may not be that much difference.
In some parts of China they used to treat such persons who overstep the law quite harshly and even arrest them. they could have toned down now.

Ok so not let the woman take the upper hand: Polyandry man!!


I just feel it's all a matter of opinion, seriously there are people all over the world that have more than one spouse and the others are totally ok with it! I don't know, if the others are fine with it, should it be legalised? Big question... But then, everything has its side effects, so I guess hard question as always!



One of our Managers in China has just gotten married for the third time after divorcing his two previous wives. Wonder what the world is coming to.
Perhaps Vinu ji has the answer.LOL--- ya ya...TongueIf two females are ready to marry me same time...I dont mind ....lolLOLbt I feel both man and woman are polygamy in nature...My previous post /topics I mention my views about marriage....marriage is just a legal prostitution which support the male hegemony in society....Smilewith marriage will go the unnatural and forced monogamy, with marriage will go rapes and prostitution, with marriage will go the forced castism and religion and superstitious thoughts transferred by parents to their children.Smilewe know all this things...then also everyboldy like to marry one or more.......lolWink
 
Vinu ji  I am suprised that you are still alive after making such an open statementLOL--- Big smileyaaa...see am alive.....Wink

Polygamist sentenced to 10 years for sex assault of teen 'bride'
 
Eldorado, Texas A Schleicher County jury deliberated for six hours Tuesday before sentencing FLDS member Raymond Merril Jessop to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl five years ago.

Under Texas law, Jessop must serve half that time -- five years -- before he is eligible for parole. He also must pay a $8,000 fine.

Asked about the decision as he was escorted back to the Schleicher County Jail, Jessop said, "I'm at peace."

He also answered "yes" when asked whether he felt his trial was religious persecution.

polygamy may have worked at the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
and thats only coz the circumstances were such that there was no choice.

my view is that in moderns times there is no need for polygomy
and i don't think that anyone has the neccessary things for it to work
be it money or patience etc
we are humans after all there are other emotions to consider like jealously
of course i am talking abt asian families living in the western world
polygomy may well work in many muslims nations today though

well the problem is the law in china is not asserted equally among the provinces. the further it is away from the capital, the difference it is from applying their laws according to the regional government. however, it is true that those extra kids do not enjoy concessions and welfare. not only that, sometimes governments also took the possessions of those couples who have children more than one.

you seem to be really interested in china and chinese summerji.

Well historically the Chinese had their concubines and the Middle-eastern Kings had their harems.
Some Inidian Kings too had more than one wife.
China's one child policy is unique. Personally I do not like it and it is most cruel in some ways. It is bound to have several social and other problems. But these days most affluent nations have declining birth rates too especially when the costs are high. In Singapore the Govt offer incentives for having extra children; still the konjush Govt is not doing enough as the related costs are very high here.
 
We always compare things with China as it  offers one extreme example. You are right that the law is interpreted differently in certain provinces and tends to be much lax further away from Beijing.

yes many men had died in wars I guess when multiple wifes were allowed.

Once a man has too many wifes and kids I guess he has less private moments.
