The reason some Muslims practice polygamy is because many women who are poor, and without husband need the protection and support. Some Muslim men who own businesses who can afford to support a second wife or third do have multiple wives. In the ancient Islamic times when there was war and many women were left without husbands the men use to bring the women and marry them. Now, in days it is very hard in these economic times to have a second wife, but if the Muslim man can afford to have a second wife he can marry her with asking of the first wife. The Muslim man has to pay the maintence of all wives rent, electric, buy her a car and also all expense’s are met, if he cannot meet this then the man cannot marry the second wife.
