10 Reasons for Polygyny

Dear Sister-to-Be,

I was thinking it might be fun to list 10 reasons why living in a polygynous family is a great idea. There are many many more reasons than just 10, but I think a list of 10 is a good thing for a start. I am not listing things in a particular order, just as they come to mind:

  1. You are living in a big family with your best friends always around, and a lot of support for your life style from other adults.
  2. You have a lot of children around, your own and those of your sister wives.
  3. The work in house and garden is distributed evenly amongst the adults of the family.
  4. You, as a part of the family, can live self sufficiently on the family's own land, and so can your children.
  5. You are well protected in bad times, and in good company at all times.
  6. You can home school your children together with other children of the household.
  7. You will not have to go to a nursery home when you are old, but will be well cared for all the days of your life.
  8. You can eat wholesome food that the family grew itself.
  9. You can stay home with your children and don't have to sell yourself to an employer.
  10. Your children have plenty of other children to grow up with, who are all raised according to the same standard.
Questions, comments ? Please do to hesitate to say what you have to say.


  1. Testing 123, because Hugh sagt:

    It's hard to post comments at "Sister, where art thou?"

  2. I thought that only women who are brainwashed would ever submit to polygamy. That is what the plyg haters always say.

  3. Cristina,

    Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, that is what they say. To me, the brain washing lies elsewhere, but it is more difficult to spot for most people because it is so wide spread. Turn on the TV, and you see how brain washing is done these days.

    No, you need not be brain washed to be happy with polygamy as a woman, indeed not, and if we believe the prophesy of Isa 4:1, many women will realize this before long.

    Grace and Peace,

  4. Rebeckah,

    I received and read your comment, but rejected it. I am sorry, but arguing for the sake of arguing is not what I intend to waste my time on, and allowing your comment would put me in the position of having to explain too much, explain things I thought were obvious, for the most part. You are free to doubt everything I said, of course.

    If you are personally interested in an answer, please contact me privately.

    Grace and Peace,

  5. hi,
    Thank you for the blog. We (my wife and I) have always believed in plural marriage but never given ourselves self the grace to actually think it through. Which we have done now , we both now know to wonder that it is, and what it can offer us as a loving family.

    But how do we do it? How do we meet potential sisters?
