The Courage of Vulnerability

Uncategorized

by Coach Fatimah

As I read the definition of “vulnerability” I suddenly was submerged in my own past moments where I met vulnerability at the fork in my own emotional road. A few words in the definition spoke to me.

In response to women who say, "Why can't I have more than one husband?!"

 

Many times when women discuss men being married to more than one woman, one knee jerk question tends to be, "why can't I have more than one husband?!"

Quick quips and reactive responses hardly are well thought out questions. Very few societies have ever practiced polyandry (women having more than one husband) and thrived. There are many reasons why but we focus on just a few reasons why it makes more sense to us why polygyny is more the natural way then other forms of polygamy.

Love... can a man actually love more than one woman?

As salaamu alaykum - Peace,
