How would you treat them in manner that respects how they think you should treat them and their families.
I'm sorry, I don't quite understand what you're saying here.
Since they are outside my culture, and so, outside my understanding, and this seems to be a longstanding tradition of theirs, I wouldn't be able to
do anything about, so I wouldn't say anything.
However, I do think monogamy should be the human ideal (oops, sorry for dropping another positive moral judgement). Since, I think to most people, the
idea of a 'soul-mate', another person of the opposite sex who you can bind your self with to the point where the two of you feel as one, I think
that is what people spiritually strive for.
Unfortunately to your tastes, they involve precepts like 'faithfulness' in body, mind and spirit to the other spouse.
