South Africa’s government is considering allowing women to have multiple husbands, a possibility that has thrown the country’s conservatives into uproar.The proposal to allow polyandry was included in a green paper from South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs, which hopes to make marriage more inclusive.The option is just one of several in a wide-ranging document, but it has caused intense debate in South Africa.Polygamy, where men marry multiple wives, is legal in the country.
I’m not a fan of either (one partner is enough for me thank you) but if men are allowed multiple wifes, then women should be allowed multiple husbands.
The country’s conservatives were left aghast by the suggestion.One prominent face criticizing the proposal is Musa Mseleku, a reality TV star who has four wives.”I’m pro-equality,” Mseleku said in a YouTube video posted to his own channel in May. He claimed in the clip that polyandry would throw the paternity of children into question.”That child is going to belong to which family?” Mseleku asks.”More than that, we are spiritual people,” he added. “Our spirits, our creator, has made sure that we are created in this fashion.”
You have to laugh. A guy with four wives is aghast at the proposal a woman can have more than one husband and saits our creator made sure we are created this way!
