Polygamy in South Africa| Proposals were presented for women to have more than one husband in this country, the conservative section strongly opposed. South Africa Mulls Allowing Women To Marry Multiple Men, Conservatives aren’t happy
In this country, women have proposed to have more than one husband
New Delhi: In South Africa, men already have the right to have more than one marriage and it is now being proposed to legally allow women to have more than one husband. According to the proposal, now women can have more than one husband. But as soon as the proposal came, its opposition has started and the conservative section has sharply criticized this proposal and described it as destroying the society.
motion introduced in parliament
This proposal to have more than one husband was put by the South African Home Department, which is under consideration in the Parliament of South Africa. According to a CNN report, this proposal has triggered intense debate in the country. Despite the fact that men are allowed polygamy (more than one wife), orthodox men are still opposing it. If African experts are to be believed, this will give women the pleasure of equal marital freedom and will shock the conservative people of the country.
the opposition protested
According to a report in The Independent, Leader of the Opposition African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP)’s Kenneth Mesho said the proposed law would “destroy society” if women were given equal marriage rights. The Constitution of South Africa is considered one of the most liberal constitutions in the world. This constitution has adopted same-sex marriage for all and polygamy for men.
Those who have four wives are also protesting
Businessman and TV personality Moses Maseleku, who himself has four wives, is also opposing polygamy among women. According to the BBC, Moses says, ‘This will destroy African culture. What will happen to those people’s children? How will they know their identity? Women cannot take the place of men. Never heard like this. Will women now pay lobola (bride price) for men?’
