According to wikipedia.com, polygamy is defined as : ´the practice of marriage to more than one spouse simultaneously.´ And in light of the recent situation in El Dorado, Texas, one might wonder that in an age in which some monogamous relationships can be trying, and unless one is born into a polygamy atmosphere, why complicate matters by being married to several persons all at the same time? Does the phrase, 'rooster in the hen house come to mind?'
Especially at a time in which one only has to tune in to the local evening news to note how jealous some persons in our midst can become upon learning that his/her monogamous mate has been known to be unfaithful. Do some instances of domestic violence sound familiar?
So those involved in a polygamous type of relationship must be quite strong to cope with such high emotions such as: jealousy, envy, and the mere notion that with every given day, they are all vying for the attention of that one person they are all married to.
Time and time again I have heard many people say that the Supreme Being they believe in give them what they can cope with or handle. And maybe some can cope well with being in a polygamous situation, while others might choose the monogamous route.
And most persons we associate with on a daily basis prefer the less complicated, and non cult like monogamous route, including this writer. For in a time when it can be a bit of an ordeal trying to find the ideal mate anywhere, even on the better dating websites the internet has to offer, all most individuals want is someone who appreciates them enough to want to be around them as often as possible.
Coming home at the end of a day to a houseful of other persons with whom you are sharing one mate might not be for everyone.
