    To be fair, this has been condemned by the secretary of the Islamic Council of Victoria, as well as the Australian Muslim Women's Centre For Human Rights.

    This was a Facebook post written the official page of the Preston Mosque - Victoria's largest mosque:

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/preston-mosque-in-strife-over-telling-wives-to-share-their-husbands-with-other-women/story-e6frf7kx-1226422997012

    Its a good thing this was condemned, but it really is offensive to know that there are some Muslim men who still believe it is okay to do this to their wives - and expect us to accept it.

    These men should be ashamed of themselves.

    There is, of course, an allowance for this within islamist doctrine which is possibly what was described. It's called a "Muta marriage". It's a temporary marriage lasting for hours or longer that involves the exchange of money or services for the benefits of marriage, ie: some boom boom.

    It's called prostitution in many places but in the Islamic worldview, its said to be sanctioned by god so... Good enough for the 7th century, good enough for today.

    So many men of all colours, race, creeds, religions or whatever are bad news for their wives.
    Wife beating, shagging around and sheep sex are far too common amongst married men.

    Fred, if it's a bad thing it's a bad thing - regardless of who else is doing what else that's bad.

    Most people in 'the West' take mutual sexual fidelity (exclusivity) as a 'given' in marriage, and are firmly committed to monogamy - MUTUAL monogamy.

    The problem I see with the paradigm is that it isn't mutual: it doesn't allow for a woman to have a second or third husband......

    A man in Islam is allowed to have up to 4 wives.

    The current wife(s) are Not allowed to forbid him from taking another wife.

    Nor does he have to ask the current wife(s) permission.

    Although, a good husband would tell her/them his plans ahead of time and not make adding another wife to the marriage a surprise. :cool:

    Even in the O.T. most of the Prophets, Moses, Abraham, David, Soloman, etc., had multiple wives.

    But there is no instance recorded in the Bible of any woman having more than one husband.

    Since muslims follow the example of the O.T. prophets and Muhammad(pbuh)

    Only men are allowed more than one spouse. :cool:

    Muslims are allowed to have up to 4 wives, the rich Sheiks have even more. They don't really care to hear what Westerners think of this.

    I was married once for 5 years, I couldn't imagine having more than 1 wife, that must be what hell is like.
