"I'm thinking about a new wife, No. 9," he told the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot in a recent interview. "There are many women who wish to marry me and there is no lack of women. I never had a problem with such things. My first wife is my age, and today I hardly spend any time with her. Her children are big, and I leave her alone. I have younger wives to spend time with. Every night I decide which wife to be with."

What are these women? Stupid incarnate? Sorry... it's just disgusting what they let him do.

Activists said Abu Arrar's story showed the urgency of raising literacy and education among women in the impoverished Bedouin community. Many are pressured into marriage or feel they have no other options beside raising children, said Khadra al-Sani, director of Sidra, a Bedouin women's rights group.
well, that explains

Good for him, but are the wives happy?

Atom, I don't think they're starving. I think they just cut back on things like TV, Cable, Internets, Heating, Cell Phones, Hair salons, Bus Passes, Electricity bills, Ritalin, New clothes... They're Bedouin after all.

Yeah, I know sizz, it was more of a joke than a statement.

It is, however, ridiculous for anyone to have that ammount of children.

Now, I'm usually very open and understanding about cultural differences. I dont't go to someone else's country and start saying "thats weird" just because it's different or not something I'm used to. But some things, no matter what culture or traditions, are just wrong.

It's like having that many kids is just some sort of trophy to him, something to brag about. And his wifes arent even equal to him. It's like theyre just play things. It's really sad that woman are still 2nd class citizens in most of the world.

I don't care if his wives somehow really got brainwashed to love him, I'd like to go over there and kick his butt, and slam his head with a pan. That'll teach him to treat his wives, or any other woman as a 2nd class citizen. Oh and how I'd love to sterilize this man - there're too many kids in the world as it is. Him spawning more of his mentality isn't in anyway something to look forward to.

Sucks somewhat for the overpopulation of the plannet too, especialy if his kids share the same... desires. *insert eco-rant here*

If every man was Henry VIII, what would the other ~5/6 (or more in his case) of men do? Leave some for the rest of us, man! ;_;

Isn't it a primal need to spread our seed as far and wide as much as possible?

Atom, I believe you're right about the trophy thing. In some South American countries a man's manhood is measured by how many kids he has. So if his wife can only pump out one at a time wouldn't he want to get a second one to help out?

Also, we shouldn't assume that the women are the only victims here. Men have to abide by these customs or else people will think less of them. We should also consider the possibility that women actively contribute to this mentality and could be as responsible for this as men.
