Polygyny the practice of having multiple wives has existed since ancient times and is still practiced in many countries throughout the world. In this book, Dr. Patricia Dixon argues that the practice is one the African American community should adopt as well. According to Dixon, the concept of monogamy was spread by Christianity and created an unrealistic and romanticized notion of marriage that leaves many women, especially African American women, unfulfilled and unsupported. She offers many reasons to support polygyny, most importantly, the shortage of available African American men. Through extensive interviews, she offers an insider s look at polygynous marriages, showing readers its benefits and disadvantages, interpersonal dynamics, how financial, sexual, and parental responsibilities are determined, and the legal, moral, and cultural challenges that must be overcome in order to make polygynous marriage possible within American society.

  • khoe Banned Added Dr Patricia, you are so right. On the other hands, polygamy is everywhere, even here in the U.S not only Africa. Muslim, India English, West Cost England. In fact, it being around before BC. Moreover, over 6.8 Trillion years ago. Can you remember Adam & Eve story? Adam had three wives then.
