To build a large family.


A tribe.


A powerful integrated unit.


Of course this is my purpose, I am sure there are a plethora of alternative opinions here.


My chosen purpose has focus, and consequences.


For example of consequence, a potential wife needs to be of healthy childbearing age.  Note this is aligned with the historical use of polygamy throughout human history.


If there is no one suitable for that purpose, that is fine, I am already fully engaged in my mission.  Any wife/wives are here to support me in that mission.


As I said, I am focussed.


Any feeding frenzy over a new single woman is counter to this philosophy and of no interest to me.  The head of the family is the prize, and not visa versa.


Perhaps this is not the time or place. It doesn't bother me one bit.


Polygamy is a belief, which may or may not have the opportunity to be put into practice.


PS I am pleased to announce the successful arrival of child eleven, who is a delight.

Reflecting as an adult on my childhood, I think my parents had two separate only children rather than two children, siblings.  My parents showered us both with a lot of love and attention, meeting all our needs.  Certainly that was a fantastic experience but left me unprepared in some ways for the cruel world and independent adulthood, where there is not always someone there to help you and fulfill your wishes.  There is an old saying that if you give a child and a pig everything they want, you will end up with a good pig.


What does this have to do with polygamy?


Do we have multiple independent husband and wife relationships, or a sharing, or both?


The two shall become one of Genesis implies a singularity of pairing, exclusive of others.  Extending that to polygamy would imply multiple one flesh pairings, each unique in its bonding.


But what of sister wives?


The name itself implies a relationship between wives.


How many women raised in western society really want the sister aspect of polygamy, rather than engaging in a tug of war with the other wives, the objective being to secure the greatest share of the man's time, energy and resources?


Is the maths simply 1+1, and another 1+1, and so on, an additive process?


Or are there synergies, sharings, benefits, where 1+1+1 = more than 3?


In chemical terms, the synergy would be covalent bonding with the women the atoms and the male the electron.


Surely the highest and best form of polygamy is where each person seeks to bring out the best in the others, being true agape.


Something to think about.
