Well, Joe, or whatever your name is.. you obviously haven't got your thinking cap on!

Yes, as moslems we may have up to 4 wives. And yes The Prophet, PBUH had 10 wives! But he is our leader, and as a leader he has different priviliges than others. He is our Prophet, PBUH.

Even in non-religious things in this world, whatever they may be, the leader usually receives a better payment than people who are at the bottom of the hierarchy. Because he has more responisibilities. Anything else is stupid.
