Among the things to know about divorce in Islam and polygamy is that we at the polygamy 411 blog do not tell any woman that she must stay in a polygamous marriage. It’s important to note that there are women who love their husbands and want to stay married to them, despite that their husbands have become polygamous.
Not all women want to divorce the men whom they love, regardless of their problems. For instance, some women may feel compelled to stay in a polygamous marriage when they consider such things as the children, finances and having a place to live. Furthermore, not wanting to live in a polygamous marriage is not reason enough to leave for most. They must weigh the pros and cons of staying and leaving.
There are some women who are adamant about not accepting polygamy. Generally speaking, those are the women who leave a polygamous marriage quickly. Those women don’t need anyone to tell them to leave. They intended it on their own. They had no need for others to tell them it. Those are the women who know they are unwilling to accept a polygamous marriage under any condition or circumstance.
Most women aren’t ignorant. It’s one of the things to know about divorce in Islam and polygamy
They know that they can divorce, as Allah has allowed spouses that recourse. So, then why do some women come here to tell others that they don’t have to accept their polygamous marriage? Why tell them that they can and should leave it?
The outsiders can’t see that the women are bright and intelligent and know what their options are. Basically, I’ve found that most women know that they can leave the marriage. However, they battle with themselves as to if they should or not. They need to make their intention and then do what they must to get it done.
Sadly, some people project their own mores and beliefs on others. By and large, they hate polygamy. With that said, they want others to dislike it, as well.
In conclusion, a woman needs to take a good look at herself and her life. She needs to ask herself why she stays in her marriage and what she wants from it. Only she can answer it.
