Can women marry more than one man?

Since polygamy was only permitted to provide for widowed women and their children, this purpose would not be served by polyandry, i.e. the marriage of a woman to more than one man, hence there was no point in permitting it.

Polyandry goes on in Tibet. Usually a woman is married to 2 brothers or occasionally to a father and son. It's normally done to avoid breaking up the family land.

The only way to make it fair is to permit men AND women to have multiple spouses Otherwise it's one-sided and out of balance. Very bad ju-ju

i saw a documentary from the 70s or 80s. somewhere in some east asian country, one of the populations there have this custom of marrying a woman to more than one man.
in one case, one woman married 2 (or was it 3 or 4?) brothers. but this is the thing: the men were related by blood. and they have to be related by blood. after a few years, the husbands found another woman to marry - this was good, because their wife was doing everything by herself [cooking, washing, cleaning, and other chores] and having another woman in their family meant splitting the chores, and making things easier..


i believe it was done because their population was small in numbers, and they didnt want the blood from other populations mixed in. i also think they didnt have enough women born to marry to each man.

of course, this was very weird to see, for my western eyes..

so, in theory women can marry more men.. should it be done? i don't really think so, not in our western society where women are still objectified and mistreated.

If I ever have a chance at getting married I'm going to be the last man that girl is ever with. It's what my father had. It's what my grandfather had. It's what my great-grandfather had. It's only fair that's what I'll have to.

The question y'all -should- be asking is "WHY would someone want to marry multiple folk?" Seriously, dating one person is hard enough labor as it is already... I mean if I was a millionaire then my outlook would be different yes but as a commoner I don't see much in my favor.

They do in this one sci-fi book I read: Red Rising. The Obsidian caste women have children from multiple men. But that's sci-fi lol.

On a serious note, I don't see why not. Polygamy seems to make more sense to me as I get older with how unhappy people can be in relationships it seems time to try something else.
