In humanity as a man you can marry one up to four wives

Thanks to Con for instigating this debate, & I accept the challenge. :)


Con has not elaborated on his Resolution, so I shall take the initiative.



Resolution:



- Since Con mentioned ‘Polygamy’ & ‘man marrying four wives’, I am led to believe that this is about Polygamy (specifically Polygyny) according to Islamic Law, & thus the Resolution would be treated from a legal approach, in the framework of Shari'a Law.


- Polygamy = Polygyny or Polyandry:

> Polygyny: one man legally married to more than one wife.

> Polyandry: one woman legally married to more than one husband.


- Since Con did not specify who has the burden of proof, it must thus be shared. For Con to disapprove of Polygamy (Polygyny as opposed to Polyandry), & for Pro to approve of Polygamy (Polygyny as opposed to Polyandry), all that in the framework of Shar'ia Law.




Best of Luck, & may the best argument win.
