It is something I think all parties involved should embrace willingly, and it’s okay for anyone who chooses it. Some religions|traditions allow polygamy and I have nothing against it. However, I am ABSOLUTELY certain that I will not be NUMBERED as a wife or be cajoled to accept a practice that does not align with my faith and family values.

Most decisions might be tough to make, but whenever we confront our options with courage and confidence, we should equally be open to the paths of our design. I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word and thought that comes with it in our lifetime.
“We should understand that taking life-changing decisions hastily is not the best. God in His infinite mercy fixes things in His own time, He will answer all our prayers.
