    • From then on, polygyny (one man with several wives) replaced polyandry (one woman with several husbands) as a marital practice.
    • One version of polygamy, polyandry - the marriage of a woman with more than one husband - is very rare.
    • Polygyny and polyandry are not allowed, and it is forbidden to marry close family and kin members.
    • So maybe you want to democratise polyandry and polygamy, if that's what you want to do, that's fine, but I mean I'm not sure necessarily that the idea of multiculturalism actually is something that needs to be actively embraced.
    • Most marriages are monogamous, although fraternal polyandry (having more than one husband) is permitted and is even considered to be prestigious.
