Polygamy is not a crime

 

Yule Edochie's second wife saga: When has polygamy become a crime? 


People can be unbelievable. When has it become a crime to have more than one wife? Must there be a problem before a man is permitted to marry another wife? And who says a man can't marry more than one wife and love them both? Or you prefer he has side chicks instead. Even concubinage is not a crime. We are Africans for goodness sake. It's his decision,not yours. 

See, a lot people are monogamous in the eyes of everyone,but polygamous in mind. Sticking to one partner is a matter of principle, not a law. People mistaken polygamy for adultery. It is not so. 


The young man married in his early twenties for goodness sake! We all know that more often than not, a man is not emotionally and psychologically mature for marriage and may likely choose a spouse for the wrong reasons,other than that which is ideal. Now he is 40 and a lot more mature and MAYBE, just MAYBE has finally found his dream woman. 


There is a difference between WHAT IS RIGHT and WHAT IS ADVISABLE. Polygamy is not wrong,but may not be advisable in certain situations. Polygamy or monogamy is a matter of choice, orientation or principle. Neither is bad. So, let's not demonize men who decide to be polygamous. Any one you choose,be ready to carry your cross.😍

What you must do during this lockdown!

Things you must do during this lockdown! 1. Get married! It may sound awkward for one to think marriage at a time like this, but it is a very good priority to grace your to-do list. A lot of intending couples whose marriage ceremonies have been put on hold because of this pandemic should go ahead and tie the knots, because there would be a lot more at stake when the coast finally becomes clear. It is to your advantage,as you will have to jettison your earlier plan of a spending spree for a modest ceremony involving a few important personalities, without flouting the social distancing rule. It will also be an opportunity for more emotional bonding as you have all the time in the world to get to spend together. If your partner is from a neighbouring village or town, a very quiet and uneventful traditional wedding can be done with the fewest number of people possible. Get a "man of God" to do the needful,if you fancy that. You are good to go! 2. Avoid frivolous phone calls
