How many wives  is a Hindu man permitted?

Answer:

Well, the fact actually is, that according to the Hindu scriptures, a hindu  can have more than one wife.
It was only in 1954 that the Indian  Constitution passed a law, as the Hindu Marraige Act that a hindu can marry only  one. Otherwise before that polygamy was allowed,
so that means the Indian  Constitution has made it illegal, whereas the hindu scriptures permit it.
  In a survey, there were more hindus with many wives as compared to muslims.  Hindus should fight for their right according to hindu scriptures. And  practically, there are more females than males, so where would the rest of the  females marry. Thousands of females die every year due female foeticide and  infanticide, which further decreases the female population.

The  female population in India, barring Kerala, is less (I should say seriously  less) than the male population. Under the circumstances, polygamy does not make  any sense in India. And the so called law prohibits it, which is total fabrication to keep Hindu’s under control., and I reject the Law.

All our Hindu God has more then one wife. Lord Krishna had 8 wifes. And father of Lord Rama had Three.
 Let us first try to increase the  female population and save the girl child. However, first paragraph is  correct.
Marriage to more than one spouse at a time. Although the term may also  refer to polyandry (marriage to more than one man), it is often used as a  synonym for polygyny (marriage to more than one woman), which appears to have  once been common in most of the world and is still found widely in some  cultures.
Polygyny seems to offer the husband increased prestige, economic  stability, and sexual companionship in cultures where pregnancy and lactation  dictate abstinence, while offering the wives a shared labour burden and an  institutionalized role where a surplus of unmarried women might otherwise exist. 
The polygynous family is often fraught with bickering and sexual jealousy; to  preserve harmony, one wife may be accorded seniority, and each wife and her  children may have separate living quarters.
Polyandry is relatively rare; in  parts of the Himalayas, where brothers may marry a single woman, the practice  serves to limit the number of descendants and keep limited land within the  household.

  1. A Hindu man should not marry a Muslim girl. Similarly, a Muslim girl should not marry a Hindu man. There are a lot of Hindus for Hindus girls and a lot of Muslims for Muslim girls. They should marry as per their own school of thoughts. Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan should divorce their Hindu wives. Similarly, Hindus having Muslim wives should divorce them. How a Hindu woman lie under a Muslim person and a Muslim woman lie under a Hindu man? We should avoid these practices and act as per our own religions.

  3. Lord Rama has only one wife, which is Sita Mata.
    His father Dasratha was the man with 3 wives.
    We should rise above literary meanings of our scriptures and puranas. Lord krishna represents the ultimate Lord. And he had 16008 wives. Whoever sees and devotes to him n wotever form ,he appears to them n same form.
    Eg. For Arjuna and Sudhama he was friend.
    For Draupadi he became a brother.
    For Radha he was lover. Etc.
    In the present world polygamy would only add to problem and would be misused by men to discriminate women.
    In India ,you are right that Muslims are previlegd .
    THATS WHY WE RSS AND HINDU NATIONALISTS ARE DEMANDING A COMMON CIVIL CODE, whereby polygamy would be totally banned.
    They have another right , husband can divorce wife by saying ‘TALAQ’ thrice!!
    And he doesnt have to luk after wife or kids after that!

    • What problems would get added further? you should agree that the society was better in earlier days when their was a choice for everyone. Now it is just discrimination and to avoid this people convert. You can not deny the fact that polygamy is going to stay whatever laws are made. Men by nature are polygamous and to not respect their natural instincts is a crime. The law should be fair, if someone affords to maintain multiple wives he should have a choice instead of making him divorce the existing wife and spend a hell lot of amount in court case, alimony and maintenance.

      • Well Said.Totally agree.There are many man and woman those have multiple hidden partners even after marriage.Most of the Man are always ready to cheat there wife.Instead of asking a person to divorce he should allowed second marriage so the status for both the wife remain equal otherwise after divorce that status and condition of a woman is so bad in society.I have seen lot of couple doing a fight every time on small things after a couple of years of marriage.Every second married person is laughing on jokes on married life.Most of the married man start a affair with other females and leave them with an excuse that they are married.Is this not against woman?Why only hindus are forced to avoid polygamy.

    • As for common civil code First draft what rights Husband would have as per law in Marriage .

      Why husband is bound to pay maintenance to wife for whole life ?

      Why Husband gets no thing in return as per law First codify these .

      What remedy legal husband would have against wife in such code .?

      Simply than why not allow a written agreement between husband and wife .

      Why Father would have to pay for children and would be regarded as second grade in custody by courts .

      Why wife should be entitled maintenance even after divorce

      Why Hindu wife has unlimited rights under DV Act and 498aIPC and 125 CRPC without any duty or responsibility .

      Hindus need to fight for right of husbands rather jealous of Muslims.

      • Why wife should leave her house and stay in the hell with husbands like you? why only girls are expected to change house, surname and everything.
        If you are feeling husbands are paying maintenance then I would like to inform that even women have started working. Now boy’s parents dont take dowry but they want daughter in law who is working. Life time installment is better than one time settlement naa? Now you say who is ready to marry a girl who is not working?
        Even housewives are not jobless. Actually I would say they are most daring persons than working women. They do all household chores including take of ur children who get father name as initial. She does all the work without getting one penny also. If she does the same work in other house even she can earn money. And if she does same work in US she will be called housekeeper and will earn dollars in per hour.
        Now even though women started working, it doesnt mean that her work has decreased. Actually now its increased. Before she used to to do only work in house but now even outside too. Only work has increased for women and men never helped in household chores. There are very less men who help their wife in household chores but there are more women who started working. After some days you will never see a housewife.
        If u r in US and got married to a girl in that country then u will understand. Husband and wife share their work. Cleaning house and putting clothes in washing machine is husband’s job. Be happy to have an Indian wife.
        And I agree with ur point in law. But u need to understand this law was made by Dr. Ambedkar in 1950. Full law book is outdated. Its neither helping women nor men. In small ways its helping by giving some reservations for women. Reservations for SC/ST is also there. Getting a seat in bus or compartment in train doesnt help women in equality.
        Rapes and molestation is still continuing against women.
