It is just too much to call the legally wedded wife as a 'First class prostitute' no matter from what angle you look at it. That was what I have read of late about a movement to train women as better wives.
How low can you stoop to equate the role of a wife as that of the world's oldest profession.
Sex is just a part of marriage, not the sole purpose of the amalgamation of a man and a woman!
The problem lies actually in the denial syndrome that frowns at a husband who wants to take another wife.
Taking a second, third or fourth wife is completely legal from the point of view of Islam, if he can be just to all of them.
Having a second wife is regarded as a crime or even a sin by the majority of wives. To them, it is an act of not loving one's wife any more, unfaithful.
Actually, to be honest about it, it is any man's nature to have the intention or desire of having two, three or four wives. It is just that this and economic considerations that makes him reconsider his intention.
To many, it is his wife and probably his off-springs' rejection that make him forget about his desire, though deep inside him it is that he actually wants, especially when he wants more in a woman than mere sex.
So, come on stop being a hypocrite. Know and understand one's husband's right and not make him choose between you and her.
It is not that his love for you has gone with the passing years, it is just that he wants the love of another woman.
Why not share, rather than keeping his love just for yourself? Knowing well (though you never want to admit it) that you now cannot any longer meet his demand of attention and love.
To husbands, don't take this as a signal that you can marry another woman wantonly.
I am just suggesting that it is all right to marry more that one wife provided your intention is clear, and you are sure you can provide justice in your marriage.
I am just requesting for the women folks to seriously think about it rationally, without jumping to the ceiling just because their husband says that he is planning to marry another woman.
It is allowed by Islam. Why prevent something that is permissible and at the same time letting some thing that is not permitted to go on unabated like no one cares - free relationship between the opposite sex that lead to so many social ills like baby dumping.
