The Bible is God's word, and it tells Christians how to act in various situations. It also tells us what God wants from us as His children and lets us know that He still loves us. The Bible has many different lessons, but today we'll focus on what it says about having more than one wife.
There are many reasons why a man might want to marry more than one woman. These include traditions, personal desires, or the fact that the woman can't have children. Most of the time, polygamy makes women angry and lonely. Some people in the Bible had more than one wife, like Abraham and Elkana, who had two wives named Hannah and Peninah.
In 1 Timothy 3:2, it says, "A bishop must be blameless, the husband of only one wife, watchful, sober, good-mannered, able to teach, and the husband of only one wife." This is proof that God wants Christians to only have one wife. But to avoid fornication, let every man have his wife, and let every woman have her husband, says 1 Corinthians 7:2. In Luke 16:18, Jesus says that anyone who marries more than one wife is committing adultery.
