In my experience, as a subsequent wife, when the subject of polygyny is brought up, the focus turns towards the feelings and emotions of the initial wife. I was informed that as an incoming wife, you know what to expect, you know what you "signed up for". However, in my own journey as a subsequent wife and as a polygyny coach who decided to finally shed some light on feelings and emotions of incoming wives, feelings that are not often heard, I've found out that wives in general, no matter what order they may have entered into polygyny have some type of emotional baggage or feelings that can cause issues with their self confidence, their role in their marriage and peace within themselves and their union.
There are women who see polygyny as a solution for society, as a way of life for them, but are afraid that they may not have the emotional stamina to deal with the unknowns and the "what ifs" as well as the "what would the people say" possibilities that may insert themselves in their thoughts and lives. I addresses the concern of "Am I emotionally capable to handle polygyny in this video. Check it out and leave your comments and questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
