First, before jumping straight into the conversation, I think there is the need to clarify first the complete meaning of what “Polygamy” is.

The word polygamy is a compound word for both polygyny and polyandry, the where later means (one man is married to more than one wife at a time) while the other polyandry means (one woman marrying more than one husband at a time or simultaneously).

Now when we say “embracing polygamy”, it is a call on society to give the freedom or come to the acceptance of both genders been free to have more than just one sexual partner and relationship companion. That is losing the shackles of one religion monogamist believes as to another’s the support of just one gender having the freedom of having multiple partners with a superseding control and capacity to own and lord over the opposite gender.

But with more and more infusion of western culture diluting the African culture, young African women are kicking back against the idea of them having to share their husbands. These making husbands, men more and more prone to having mistresses, baby mamas, and side-chics instead of just marrying another wife.
