Contrary to popular belief, polygyny is not widely practiced in Islam although it is permitted in certain circumstances. Men who marry more than one woman do so knowing that they are responsible for treating their wives with kindness and dignity as well as for providing for their material needs. It is not, as many imagine, a game or some type of fantasy life to be married to more than one woman. Furthermore, women who do not wish to enter into such marriages are free to accept or reject them. Read what Islam says about plural marriage as well as the role polygyny has played in both Christianity and Judaism in the follwing articles.
