Polygamy is the practice of having more than one spouse at one time. Earlier polygamy was limited to rulers and kings. Colonial education and laws put an end to this practice. But polygamy is still widely prevalent in the society and increasing at an alarming rate. The study reveals that this practice is not exclusive to Muslims but exists among all communities: tribals, Buddhists, Jains etc.
There are various reasons and factors that led to Polygamy. One of the strongest pertaining cause is the religious and cultural belief system, where the religion, itself promotes the polygamy concept. Sometimes, due to religious beliefs, the legal system also accommodates the Polygamy practice. For example, Islam supports the Polygamy concepts and thus it is legalized to have multiple wives for the Muslims in the countries like India, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Philippines and many more.
In my opinion, the best solution is to introduce strict laws & regulatory practices to abandon
Polygamy. Not only the amendment, but the government must take the strict action for the implementation of such laws. The women literacy rate should be encouraged as it helps women to know their legal & fundamental rights and show them the path to fight against the illegal issues. The women empowerment programs should be encouraged. The women should be made independent & self- sufficient.
To sum up, the ensured equality in the society, awareness & practice of fair legal rights can be helpful to decrease the Polygamy issue.
