Polygamy ‘is bad for the heart’

Men with multiple wives have four times the risk of heart disease, a new study has found.

Researchers said the study suggested that the stress of running multiple households and the “emotional expense” of polygamy could place strain on the heart.

Research on 687 men in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates found that the risks of heart disease increased with each extra wife.

Two thirds of the men in the research were monogamous while the rest had between two and four wives.

    One can bet that this line of medical research will not go far. The dominant new-class culture favors polygamy. Anyone researching this issue will be ostracized, and verbally beaten up, for the new class establishment.

    Why the hell would anyone want more than one wife?

    These guys deserve every grey hair and heart attack that comes along!

    Interesting. I wonder if there might be more eating and weight gain because various wifies want to curry favor by cooking up their best recipes.

    • Yeah, the sheiks are all pretty fat!

  • I wonder what Western feminists think?

  • Makes sense.

    Multiple wives = multiple mother-inlaws, that’s the cause right there

    Imagine listening to complaints times four day in and day out plus even the exact same complaints times two, three, four. Lmao…men can be so silly. That’s why Muslim men use the escape clause of talak (saying I divorce you three times) popular in Saudi.

    Bigamy – Having one wife too many
    Monogamy – See ‘Bigamy’
    *rimshot* 😉

    Did they control for other risky behaviour? I suspect a man who has taken the plunge of marriage more than once is not going to shy away from bacon and tobacco.

    “No man can serve two masters:” three or for would be really crazy.

    I saw a Muslim man in a Costco with two presumed wives in hijabs. They were each pulling him in different directions to buy stuff they wanted. I was also pulled in two directions. I felt sorry for him, and was glad about his misery.
