Many have argued that it is the law that a man must marry only one woman at a time, therefore it is illegal and also immoral for him to sleep with another that’s not his wife.
Those on the other side have also argued that it is in the nature of men to have multiple partners and indeed, history shows us that men did marry many wives in many countries until the law on one man to one woman was introduced by the church.
One lady, who have analysed the current trend of infidelity by men and how marriages are hitting the rocks have opined that, it is time women understood that a man was not made to copulate with just one woman his entire life.
Twitter user Nyarkisii says if women made peace with this fact, it would reduce domestic squabbles and gender based violence by 90%, (of course she has no scientific data to back it).
She wrote: “The day women will make peace with the fact that a man cannot copulate with one female his entire life, domestic squabbles and gender based violence will reduce by 90%.”
Her analysis may be purely based on the fact that men most marriages are ending because the men cheated and men are mostly the perpetrators of gender based violence which can partly be a consequence of disinterest in a relationship.
In effect, she suggests that men be allowed to have multiple partners if that’s what they want in order to keep the peace rather than limiting their natural state which leads to undesirable consequences.
Many netizens agreed with her but also the fact that it is not going to be easy for women to come to terms with such philosophy.
