Salaam/Peace,

Whether you're monogamously married, married in polygyny, or single; life presents itself with many challenges. And with these challenges come and we always learn from them.

And this is especially true in polygyny; with this form of marriage, some may say there are even double the challenges and triumphs. 

In this video, Coaches Nyla, Nazir & Fatimah each share ONE thing they've learned in polygyny and the impact it has had in their lives.

Why Being ANTI-Polygyny is Being Anti-Marriage

Salaam/Peace,

Despite polygyny being an honorable form of marriage, many disagree with it; saying that it contributes to dysfunctional households, it's only beneficial to the husband, all of the like.

And some, oddly enough, prefer for a husband or wife to commit an immoral act - such as cheating - rather than get involved with polygyny. But they aren't anti-monogamy.

In this video, Coaches Nyla, Nazir, and Fatimah deep dive into how being "anti-polygyny" makes one, by default,...

Co-wives Discuss: Pain in Polygyny

Salaam/Peace,

A more than common occurrence in polygyny is choosing sides. Trying to pick whether the initial wife is the "victim" for her husband marrying another woman or if the incoming wife is a "homewrecker" for "intruding" in on a marriage, although her husband is practicing something that is permissible in Islam.

In this video, co-wives & Coaches Nyla and Fatimah have a discussion on pain in polygyny and the impact it has had in their lives.

Buss 'em Open: Poly Myths

 Salaam/Peace,

In the matter of all relationships, there are plenty of myths behind them. Take polygyny for example. Many think of it "dysfunctional" or "unfair" for all parties involved, that it's just the "legal way" to cheat, and one of the most popular of them all is that it's a way for women to enter into a marriage and be a 'homewrecker'.

All in all, today's society deems it as dysfunctional. In this video Coaches Nyla, Nazir, and Fatimah give their insight on the misconceptions...

"Bonus Parenting" in Polygyny: Blended Family Edition

Uncategorized

Some people say that one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs in one's life is that of a parent. What about being a "bonus parent"? For those who are not familiar, a bonus parent is another name for step parent. Being one who was a bonus/step daughter twice around as well as being a bonus mom twice around, I have a little experience from both sides of the fence.

My first step/bonus dad, whom I lovingly refer to as "Pop" or "Pop-Pop" entered my life when I was 2 years old. Even though he and...

Handling Co-wife Comparison

Uncategorized

Salaam/Peace,

One of the major challenges between wives in polygyny is the compare and compete game. There seems to be some unwritten code that states that because you are married to the same man you must be competitors. Competing and comparing can tend to bring out more insecurity than growth. Have you heard the saying, "Comparison is the thief of joy"? While that can be true, we can also use comparisons in an empowering way if we choose to.

I created a video that explains that in a lot more...

The Weight of Healing vs. The Wait of Healing

One of the most important things is especially the harmony that may come from our healing; inner peace is always priceless.

In this video, Coach Fatimah discovered that waiting to heal placed much "weight" on her...
