A minority of Britons, but a very large one, accept having more than one wife or partner, provided it is legal and consensual, according to a survey by researchers at Swansea University in Wales who asked 1,000 people in the United Kingdom. Their stance on sharing their partner with another person.
The research was based on the results of the first part of the study, in which 393 men and women were asked about their polygamous relationships, Al-Arabiya.net learned from a British newspaper’s coverage. The Times, today Monday, revealed that men are interested in polygamous marriages.
To check if the results were coincidental, the researchers conducted another study on 735 older men and women from the first category, that is, the average age of one of them was 33 compared to the average of 25 years in the first category, and 39 % of men said they were ready for polygamy, as only 5% of women accepted. Thus, the researchers wrote, interest in polygamy “appears to exist despite cultural forces that inhibit it, suggesting that such interests may be part of the evolving psychology of mating rather than a product of culture,” according to their analysis.
