How many wives is a Hindu man permitted?
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,
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.
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.
