Amongst some Muslim men, there is a running joke that any man who has more than 1 wife is a “lucky man”. Often some men joke around with one another about the possibility (fantasy) of having more than 1 wife.

All they seem to focus on when sharing the joke of more than 1 wife is the sex. Otherwise, why would so many joke about it? They joking about having more housework to share? About having more bills/rents/child support to pay?

I seriously doubt it.

When Muslim men, who are supposed to respect, honour and treat Muslim women as “sisters in Islam” and harp on about how they respect them, they reduce the role of a wife down to the carnal level.

Muslims don’t treat others like objects? They do it more than anyone else!
