An interesting rationale for polygamy...

Malaysia's leading Islamic politician, Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, has announced that men should take on up to four wives so that some women won't be relegated to be "aged virgins," though they should "be sensitive to [their] first wife's feelings." He also has some stellar ideas for men who leave their wives without alimony or abuse the polygamy laws: He has also called for men to be whipped if they desert their wives without paying maintenance. Similar punishment should apply to those who abused Islam's polygamous provisions: "In addition to being fined, these irresponsible men should be caned, preferably until they become impotent."
