Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – It’s Biblical For Men to Need More Than One Wife?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – It’s Biblical For Men to Need More Than One Wife? April 13, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – Why Would God Make Men With Polygynous Natures When They Cannot Act Upon Them? (as usual no direct link to this guy – it is the top most piece on his website)

Editor’s note: Now Larry is trying to say that’s it’s way easier for divorced men to remarry than women. Of course he is citing something he heard when he was getting a divorce without statistics to back it up. I suspect that if women are marrying less often than men that there is a different reason for this, like perhaps women really don’t want to put up with the ridiculous hijinks of some man and would rather remain unmarried. Larry does not seem to realize that there are much worse fates in this world than remaining single.

Even if there was an exact ratio of 1/1 males and females there is a great possibility that many men will not want to marry.  In fact a lot of women talk about this today- “Where are all the guys that want to marry?” That is a different topic for another post.  But I can tell you for a fact when I was going through my divorce they told us that divorced men had a far easier chance of getting married and often got married faster than the  divorced or widowed women.  It is just harder for divorced or widowed women to get married again especially if they have children for a variety of reasons.

Now if polygamy were legal it would solve this problem by allowing wealthier men to come along and have multiple wives and be able to care for them and their children.

Part 1 | Part 2

Larry really has some awful stuff up right now on his blog, what to do about a lazy husband, and why wives need to accept their husbands porn habits.
