• Much more than you may think. I don't have the exact % numbers but this excerpt may give you an idea: MONOGAMY AND THE MODERN WORLD "Should-be" monogamy never gained worldwide attention until the last few centuries. The should-be monogamy idea was not popular in previous generations, not until its strong uprising in the last 150 years or so. In fact, polygamy was still openly practiced in the last generation in non-western countries, and is today still practiced in modern societies, even though not so openly because of the outcry of the Western Feminism movement. How quickly the should-be monogamy concept has taken over, such that it makes polygamy appear sinful and wrong ever since the beginning. A worldwide ethnographic survey of 849 human societies show 708 whose customs are polygynous (more than 1 wife), 4 polyandrous (more than 1 husband) and 137 monogamous. Other than the religious and supremacy factors, there can be a few other reasons for this. If you wish to read the whole article here it is:
  • Who cares? There is nothing wrong with polygamy just the babies who can't deal with the polygamers. Not much of a concern with me. I am not a polygamer but is it my buisness to intervene with their life? no.
  • Not enough. Of course, not enough actually practice monogamy, either, although many give a great pretense of it.
  • Many Asian and Middle Eastern countries are allowed to practice polygamy, but I am quite sure the whole world practices either bigamy or polygamy. Best regards.
  • Most I'd say, but considered fooling around
  • have no idea
