I think we should look at and think more widely why Islam allowing men to have more than one wife. According to biological science women go through mood changes , lots of emotional changes, fertility period, infertile period and god knows what... For a woman when she go through all these changes she sometimes get lack of interest in sex too ..it depends on how she feels... But for a man it is not like that and he does not go through ups and downs like a woman. So the man really needs sex regularly. If he does not get it then he can be very nasty too.

And also there are men who needs more sex than other men. For those can have one, two, or three, even four wives if he has the capability of looking after all of them equally . this means economically as well as emotionally. So you see the beautiful side of Islam. For those men, they do not have to have secret girl friends, or they do not have to go on the next door neighbour's wife. Islam allows you to have more wifes if you desire and if you are capable, but in a very nice manner and very civilised manner. In this way your community is saved for not having illegitimate children or killing of unborn children or even you do not have to search to see if you have a sister or brother just in case you may fall in love with by unknowingly. Islam is for the whole mankind. it is good for you and your community.
