    Bigamy: An issue of one too many - View From Venus - Sunday TOI - NEWS - The Times of India

    interesting article this. The polygamy issue is usually the one cited by many to come up with the uniform civil code.
    Come to think of it, more % of Hindus take more than one wife than Muslims. Many more converting to just take another wife.
    Good thought about regulating bigamy through conversion and an eye opener of sorts this statistic.

    its just human psychology as if it is legal we wont do and but if it against law then we will go to any extent to do it and also why we need such concession for a particular group in a secular nation? is any secular or normal nation have this kind of separate laws ? (dont show islamic nation as they have only one law that is shariat)

    more than one wife!!! who said India is poor. Seriously, one wife is big responsibility how do they put up with wives and children. I hope these guys have enough financial backup.

    Either the constitution must sanction everyone to have as many spouses as one may wish(as many husbands or as many wives) or simply make it illegal for anyone to practise polygamy or polyandry(irrespective of religion, region, caste, colour, creed).

    Just have one law: Either allow it or not. But no hypocrisy of making it illegal for one particular section while allowing it for another section of society.

    The percentage of polygamy is small and the community whose religion sanctions more than one wife has the lesser percentage of people doing thst than the one that doesn't allow. So regardless of legal or illegal, it's happening. A five odd percentage is not a big percentage anyways.

    there is one huge disadvantage has all wives of this section has right on properties and it is nightmare for people who buy property from this people as in future some one may come and say am fifth wife and i have right on this property then not only your property is lost but also money(you wont get single penny)
    ps:my grandmother bought one house and after some time some one came saying that she has right on property and grabbed that house with assistance of law so its a growing danger as if they do purposefully by selling properties and grabbing after sometime using this law which favors them
