Why are men polygamous by nature? Power of the Visual
Why are men polygamous by nature? The Answer is very simple. This may be a very bitter pill to swallow for many people, especially for those women that come from the Indian subcontinent. However, the reality is that men, by their very nature, are “wired” to be polygamous. If they do not get to practice polygamy in the correct, responsible and ethical sense of the word, they will practice an unethical form of serial polygamy involving mistresses and prostitutes.
There are two books that support this claim, backed up by scientific studies and analysis. Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of modern sexuality by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha, and The Myth of Monogamy by David P. Barash and Judith Eve Lipton. Both of these books are available online and in bookstores. I would suggest that naysayer of polygamous marriages read these books to understand that there is a great deal of wisdom associated with the Islamic rulings related to polygamy.

In this video, the same issue is discussed but only Islam gives the moral and ethical solution that was legislated by God Almighty.
Why are men so easily turned on sexually by a woman’s legs, but not vice-versa? Why are female strip clubs so much more prevalent and popular than male strip clubs, but not vice-versa? In five minutes, Dennis Prager explains why the answers to these questions reveal so much about male and female sexual nature, and how the visual impacts the two sexes in totally different ways.
This in no way excuses men or women to disobey the Almighty in what He has commanded but to do everything that is natural in a permissible way in Marriage.
Again this is not for everyone but it is a solution and an option that is there in Islam while being a blessing and mercy for the growing number of women who can’t get married.
“Do not go near fornication and adultery, it is an abomination and an evil way.” (Quran 17:32).
“Tell the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them; And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.
And tell the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty…” (Quran 24:30-31).
