Polygamy in USA
06:02:50 PM Saturday Nov 19, 2005


While reading a featured article on wikinews about France's recent events I came across this statement:

"..Members of Sarkozy's UMP party blamed the de facto polygamy of some African immigrants for the failure of their families to raise and educate children properly. They suggested a more restrictive approach to immigration.[full article]"

I have actually never researched whether Muslims are allowed to marry up to 4 wives in foreign lands such as the US. It seems from the above statement that France has no law that prohibits polygamy (to be verified). We hear of some famillies in America, mostly Utah, who are polygamists - some of whom are sued, others who themselve sue their states for religious descrimination.

It occurs to me also, that polygamy could well be the next question politicians will struggle to answer, after same-sex. Then again, who will stop same-sex marriage activists to ask for an upgrade!

So i wonder who will be the first Muslim polygamist familly in the US; that would definitely make one heck of a headline!

"Suppose my sister happens to be one of the unmarried women living in USA, or suppose your sister happens to be one of the unmarried women in USA. The only two options remaining for her are that she either marries a man who already has a wife or becomes public property. There is no other option besides remaining lonely."
Are you for real? PUBLIC PROPERTY?? I guess, "remaining lonely" sounds like a really good option to me...

Polygamy laws expose our own hypocrisy
By Jonathan Turley
Tom Green is an American polygamist. This month, he will appeal his conviction in Utah for that offense to the United States Supreme Court, in a case that could redefine the limits of marriage, privacy and religious freedom.
If the court agrees to take the case, it would be forced to confront a 126-year-old decision allowing states to criminalize polygamy that few would find credible today, even as they reject the practice. And it could be forced to address glaring contradictions created in recent decisions of constitutional law.

For polygamists, it is simply a matter of unequal treatment under the law.

Individuals have a recognized constitutional right to engage in any form of consensual sexual relationship with any number of partners. Thus, a person can live with multiple partners and even sire children from different partners so long as they do not marry. However, when that same person accepts a legal commitment for those partners "as a spouse," we jail them.

Likewise, someone such as singer Britney Spears can have multiple husbands so long as they are consecutive, not concurrent. Thus, Spears can marry and divorce men in quick succession and become the maven of tabloid covers. Yet if she marries two of the men for life, she will become the matron of a state prison.

Religion defines the issue

The difference between a polygamist and the follower of an "alternative lifestyle" is often religion. In addition to protecting privacy, the Constitution is supposed to protect the free exercise of religion unless the religious practice injures a third party or causes some public danger.

However, in its 1878 opinion in Reynolds vs. United States, the court refused to recognize polygamy as a legitimate religious practice, dismissing it in racist and anti-Mormon terms as "almost exclusively a feature of the life of Asiatic and African people." In later decisions, the court declared polygamy to be "a blot on our civilization" and compared it to human sacrifice and "a return to barbarism." Most tellingly, the court found that the practice is "contrary to the spirit of Christianity and of the civilization which Christianity has produced in the Western World."

Contrary to the court's statements, the practice of polygamy is actually one of the common threads between Christians, Jews and Muslims.

Deuteronomy contains a rule for the division of property in polygamist marriages. Old Testament figures such as Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon were all favored by God and were all polygamists. Solomon truly put the "poly" to polygamy with 700 wives and 300 concubines. Mohammed had 10 wives, though the Koran limits multiple wives to four. Martin Luther at one time accepted polygamy as a practical necessity. Polygamy is still present among Jews in Israel, Yemen and the Mediterranean.

Indeed, studies have found polygamy present in 78% of the world's cultures, including some Native American tribes. (While most are polygynists ? with one man and multiple women ? there are polyandrists in Nepal and Tibet in which one woman has multiple male spouses.) As many as 50,000 polygamists live in the United States.

Given this history and the long religious traditions, it cannot be seriously denied that polygamy is a legitimate religious belief. Since polygamy is a criminal offense, polygamists do not seek marriage licenses. However, even living as married can send you to prison. Prosecutors have asked courts to declare a person as married under common law and then convicted them of polygamy.

The Green case

This is what happened in the case of Green, who was sentenced to five years to life in prison. In his case, the state first used the common law to classify Green and four women as constructively married ? even though they never sought a license. Green was then convicted of polygamy.

While the justifications have changed over the years, the most common argument today in favor of a criminal ban is that underage girls have been coerced into polygamist marriages. There are indeed such cases. However, banning polygamy is no more a solution to child abuse than banning marriage would be a solution to spousal abuse. The country has laws to punish pedophiles and there is no religious exception to those laws.

In Green's case, he was shown to have "married" a 13-year-old girl. If Green had relations with her, he is a pedophile and was properly prosecuted for a child sex crime ? just as a person in a monogamous marriage would be prosecuted.

The First Amendment was designed to protect the least popular and least powerful among us. When the high court struck down anti-sodomy laws in Lawrence vs. Texas, we ended decades of the use of criminal laws to persecute gays. However, this recent change was brought about in part by the greater acceptance of gay men and lesbians into society, including openly gay politicians and popular TV characters.

Such a day of social acceptance will never come for polygamists. It is unlikely that any network is going to air The Polygamist Eye for the Monogamist Guy or add a polygamist twist to Everyone Loves Raymond. No matter. The rights of polygamists should not be based on popularity, but principle.

I personally detest polygamy. Yet if we yield to our impulse and single out one hated minority, the First Amendment becomes little more than hype and we become little more than hypocrites. For my part, I would rather have a neighbor with different spouses than a country with different standards for its citizens.

I know I can educate my three sons about the importance of monogamy, but hypocrisy can leave a more lasting impression.

If both wives accept to live together in one house, there is no law in Islam saying they must live separately, its not necessary there should be a headache if both wives lives together in one house as per my experience with my 2 wives for more than 4 years now!!!!

No way to compare between Mormons and Islam polygamy!!

There is no specific reasons for a man to have more than one wife, since he will stick to the Islamic laws, if you read the verse which allow polygamy in Quran, you will see that its clear that there should not be any reason for a man to have more than one wife, any man can do so as long as it will be practiced according to the Islamic laws, and that his intension is not to favor one wife on the other one and he will respect them and treat them justly!!!

A country like USA which brag with democracy should allow Moslems and other cults to practice polygamy, but under strict rules same as Islamic laws, its far better than allowing men to cheat and have mistress and girlfrined secretyl. In Western society, it is common for a man to have mistresses and/or multiple extra-marital affairs, in which case, the woman leads a disgraceful, unprotected life. The same society, however, cannot accept a man having more than one wife, in which women retain their honorable, dignified position in society and lead a protected life.
Thus the only two options before a woman who cannot find a husband are to marry a married man or to become public property. Islam prefers giving women the honorable position by permitting the first option and disallowing the second.

Restricting each and every man to have only one wife is not practical
Even if every man got married to one woman, there would still be more than thirty million females in U.S.A who would not be able to get husbands (considering that America has twenty five million gays). There would be more than four million females in Great Britain, 5 million females in Germany and nine million females in Russia alone who would not be able to find a husband.
Suppose my sister happens to be one of the unmarried women living in USA, or suppose your sister happens to be one of the unmarried women in USA. The only two options remaining for her are that she either marries a man who already has a wife or becomes public property. There is no other option besides remaining lonely. All those who are modest will opt for the first.
In the USA, women outnumber men by 7.8 million. New York alone has one million more females as compared to the number of males, and of the male population of New York one-third are gays i.e sodomites. The U.S.A as a whole has more than twenty-five million gays. This means that these people do not wish to marry women. Great Britain has four million more females as compared to males. Germany has five million more females as compared to males. Russia has nine million more females than males. God alone knows how many million more females there are in the whole world as compared to males.

As far as the immigration law goes, in case of polygamy only the first wife qualify for the immigration, so I wonder how this guy brought both his wives to the US?
I am personally against Polygamy and the Holy Quran permits it only in special circumstances for the upkeep of a healthy society(After the battle of Uhud in 3rd Hijrah, large number of Muslim men were killed leaving many widows and orphans. The verse came as follows:
?If you fear that you won?t be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry the woman of your choice, two, three or four; but if you fear that you will not be able to deal justly (with wives), then (marry) only one? ) a very honourable way of solving this social problem in case of war widows, there are many cases in Afghanistan where the rate reached 1 man for 6women.
Actually almost all prophets such as Abraham, Moses, David...were polygamous, except Jesus(He lived for only 33 years)
The Mormons on the other hand, an important denomination of Christians in the US practised polygamy officially till 1890. It is said that in Utah where they are in large numbers, many middle class people at present secretly practise polygamy. They are followers of Joseph Smith. They call him as a Prophet. Brigham Young, one of their saints, left 17 widows and 47 children when he died in 1877. They practised polygamy out of necessity for survival and propagation of their clan.
There are also different types of polygamy in Africa.

Yes Magda - if a man needs to have another wife, and he can afford it financially AND he can be fair and just between the wives (materially at least - as the prophet's hadith mentions a man can't be fair with his heart and love but at least with the material needs and time shared between each wife) - then one of the requirements that he must fulfill is to have a separate home for each wife. He is forbidden from making them live together because obviously that is a cause of many huge headaches. This - sadly - is a very common mistake among many cultures and other faiths too - like the Mormons.

If you want to learn more about it I suggest you read up on some Islamic fiqh books to learn the rights and duties of each spouse and the strict conditions for polygamy.

..and good luck to whoever thinks he can handle all this! :)

Hi hudhud,
I guess I don't know all that much about the topic, but this is SOOO very new to me: "they also have all their wives living in the same home, which is also islamically forbidden". I have never heard about that - so there should be seperate household for each marriage?

actually i have met a couple of families who were polygamists here in the usa, but the two wives didn't enter the country together w/their hubby at same time. one came with him together, then the other one arrived on her own. i don't think anyone knew outside of the muslim community who already knew them that they were polygamist families.
the issue w/the mormon polygamist families, i think, is not just the question of having more than 1 wife, but that they allow marrying sisters (which in islam is forbidden) and they also have all their wives living in the same home, which is also islamically forbidden, and causes a lot of headaches.
irony is, i discovered a few years ago my grandpa was married to 3 women, and at some point 2 were living in the same home for over a year, if not longer. i wonder why he did that. being a sheikh he should've known better, but maybe he just couldn't afford another home? but i still think its' not right. having your husband marry a 2nd wife is already hard, imagine having to live with her and share everything with her too! ya latif ya settar :P
