The scholars note that highly disproportionate rates of incarceration, drug use and HIV/AIDS in the black community add to the dilemma.
Despite some women adamantly supporting the practice, Bennion said that women interested in plural marriage have to be careful when searching a site like Second as they could unknowingly end up with an abusive partner.
I've learned during my darkest times just what a gift this lifestyle can be.I'm not here to be a toy for a man, nor are my sister wives.Most men don't enter this lifestyle so they can have more sex; rather, they have a sincere sense of a higher purpose.A verse in the Quran, which is quoted at the top of Second Wife.com’s homepage, states: “Then marry women of your choice, two or three, or four, but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly, then only one.” Chaiwala and the website have faced a strong backlash from a number of politicians and women’s right activists in his native U. “The popularity of this site worries me deeply,” Jess Phillips, a Labour Party member of the Commons women and equalities committee, told the Times. S., where polygamy is generally associated with fundamentalist sects of the Mormon faith in rural areas of western states, the practice of plural marriage is actually more prevalent among orthodox black Muslim communities living in major cities like Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago.Numerous scholars attest that many of the women involved in polygamy do so not only willingly, but that some are also the main drivers in pushing their husbands to find another wife.“There are professional, Muslim women who want good husbands but also want the help of another woman in the house and a support network so they can be career women,” Janet Bennion, a professor at Vermont’s Lyndon State College and the author of “Polygamy on Primetime,” told Fox News.“These professional black women want to marry these polygamous men because these are the only good men they can find.” Bennion and other academics studying polygamy in the U. say that the practice is flourishing in the black Muslim community because of the lack of “marriageable men” in the African-American community.There are some telltale signs, she added, that women can look for when trying to look for a husband: Be wary of men who already have multiple wives or many children, stay away from men who just want young wives, know that these marriages are against the civil law of the land and draw up a contract with their husband-to-be.“If it is illegal it is ripe for abuses,” Bennion added.“In polygamy a man openly marries more than one woman, he has an honorable relationship with both woman as his wives, not side-chicks, one night flings or mistresses,” Chaiwala said on his website. Second has more than 1,600 profiles of men in the U. looking for wives, with just 304 profiles for women searching for a husband.“He provides for and maintains both families, he is not let off his responsibility in case he did not want it or is not kept away from it by family visitation laws etc. Given the illegality of polygamy and that second marriage ceremonies are performed in secret, it is difficult to determine how many people live in polygamous families, but academics estimate the range is anywhere between 50,000 and 100,000 in the U. In the United Kingdom, where the website has drawn much more press coverage, there are almost 4,000 profiles for men and 261 for women.
