Asked in Islam
Is it mandatory for a Muslim man to have more than one wife?
A: About the same number of boys and girls are born, so for each man who has two wives, another man must remain unmarried. It would therefore be impossible for every Muslim to have more than one wife. Even in countries where polygamy is legal, most Muslims choose to have only one wife. _____________________________________________________ It is practically exceptional for a Muslim man to marry more than one wife although he is entitled to marry up to four wives at a time.

Why may one wife be not enough for a Muslim man?
Having more than wife is called polygamy. Polygamy was very much spread before with unlimited number of wives. Islam religion, per Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad, limited number of wives to a husband by four. However, there are conditions for a a Muslim man to have more than wife, mainly He should have approval of his former wife (or wives) before marrying another wife. He should treat them equally in housing, spending, sexual affairs, and all other aspects of life. Usually, a Muslim man may seek for a second wife in case his former wife is suffering from a life illness that prevents her from practicing sex with her husband, or not capable of delivering a baby. He may marry a second wife who is divorced or who is widow and is in need of a man to take care of her and her children. However, it is not a rule for a Muslim man to have more than wife. The overwhelming majority of Muslim men are married to only one wife. It is an exception to have a second wife.
Why can a Muslim man have no more than one wife?
A: A Muslim man can have no more than one wife in Western countries that ban bigamy, as secular laws override religious customs and sharia law. As a practical necessity, most Muslim men can not have more than one wife, since the natural ratio of men to women is approximately one to one. Each man who has four wives effectively means that three other men must live celibate lives or adopt other means of satisfying their natural sex drive, possibly including rape, adultery and homosexuality.

Can a married Muslim man marries a non-Muslim single woman?
Asked in Quran (Koran)
Why can Muslim men marry more than one wife?
Because the Islamic faith permits poligamy and the laws in Islamic countries permit poligamy. If the Muslim man is in a country that does not permit poligamy, e.g. the U.S. or the U.K., he is subject to the laws in that country and may not marry more than one wife in that country. It would be alright with Islam, but he still must obey the laws of the land where he is.
