In the UK, Bigamy is an offence. So, this issue relates only to those followers of certain religions that allow multiple wives.
I was under the impression that the law of the land trumped any religious law? As such, why is this even being discussed?
If followers of one religion have their "religious right" to take multiple wives upheld, then surely the whole law needs changed to allow this to ALL,
otherwise it becomes unfair to others.
However, what of those who arrive in the UK as immigrants, asylum seekers etc, and then bring over wife #1 and the kids, followed by wife #2 and the
It's all very well saying we must support them, but I, as a hard working average guy am thoroughly pissed off with paying for others. Don't get me
wrong, I have no problem (kinda) with paying my taxes and national insurance, as I always have done since I left school and started work at age 16, 35
years ago, but why am I paying for people who have never, and never will, contribute to society yet expect society to support them?
There's a fat cow in the council provided flat below mine who has never worked, and pops out a new sprog every few years, by different fathers, just
to avoid having to get a job. She is currently at number 5 and receives benefits for everything. She has never paid into the system but is
"entitled" to those benefits? Where do these people think the money comes from?
So, back to supporting some guy's multiple wives / families. I'm sorry, but NO!
One wife / family and no more. If they want more, move somewhere that it is legal.
