    I was just wondering about polygamy and I see and hear a lot of men having more than one wife...but is it taboo for a woman to have more than one husband if she practices?

    Wodabe men in North Africa live in a society the reverse of ours as Africans in America.
    There the ratio of men to women is greater, so, the men wear makeup and preen(not homosexual) for the atention of young brides, in other words courtship is reversed

    and women may have up to 3 husbands

    So the men would not have more than one wife? Only the wife was the one with more than one spouse?

    You failed to mention if the MEN had more than one wife other than the women having more than one husband

    Hey, I was just about to offer my services to her as husband #1. Guess I'll have to settle for #2. That just means I'll have to try harder.
    Just remember MsI, it's all for research and science.
