I can’t quite seem to understand this almost incessant obsession (or fascination) that some Muslim (men and women) seem to have with polygyny. They see it as a solution to most relationship problems. The reasons why polygyny is often propogated revolves around sharing of housework, childcare responsibilities and having less tasks to do for the husband due to him not being around often.

But I dont find those reasons alone very appealing. I find the whole concept of polygyny quite unappealing and personally would not want to be or would not like to be part of such an arrangement.

So why do some sisters insist on educating you like you’re some kind of dimwit for not wanting to be in a polygynous marriage? It really IRKS me.

The “irking” came as a result of this
