All well and said, may I know the solutions for the 8 million more women than men in America. If all these men in America are married there will still be 8 MILLION women who are single. WHAT IS YOUR SOLUTION...PLEASE? What will happen to these women.

Remember that in Islam, polygamy is only allowed in a very strict conditions.

Among other things, the man need to have consent from the first wife and he must be financially able to support the more that one wifes and treat them fairly.

The wives has equal rights to the men and as to his wealth.

Please get yourself well informed before passing comments of matters of your prejudice.

I wonder as to whether is it better for a men to legally marry and take in wives and protect and feed them and as compared to men sleeping around with women all over and single unwed mothers with children whose father cant be identified which is now common in the western world. OR free sex by teenagers or adults a common sight as in the western world.
