Polygyny and Me

I feel lucky….

Posted on: January 17, 2010

Sometimes I look around and I concentrate on everything I am unhappy with in my life and marriage… but that shouldnt be the way….

When I look at others I see how lucky I really am….. my husband is always there for me when I need him….

I have 9 wonderful step kids whom I really enjoy going places and doing things with…. and I have 4 wonderful children of my own….

I also have a wonderful sister wife (co-wife) that i really respect and adore…. she is really a sweetie…. i could not ask for anyone better than her.

There are many good things about my marriage… and many good things about my husband….

I really do have to say he is trying his best, and really trying to arrange himself… tonight he spent time with my 17 year old son watching a movie and talking with him about what is good and what is not…. heck what step father really takes the time with his step kids like mine does… not many!

I was withoutย  a car for over one month… my sweet husband was taking me to all the places I needed to go, including my private student’s house… he sat under a tree in the car for an hour waiting for me…. or sometimes he would go up into the dunes and eat while he was waiting…. he was doing this everyday for almost two months….Then he would take me to the center where i would take the rest of my private students and come back and pick me up at 8…. alot of husbands would just say cancel your students.

I just guess sometimes I get in a ungrateful mood…. and i do have so much to be grateful for…. especially my husband…. he is really the greatest! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love your blog sister. It is nice to read that polygyny can work. I’m not in a polygyny marriage but I wouldn’t mind. It’s halal and I seer that there are many benefits. Love to read more about your life:)

wa alykum salaam

Assalamu ‘alayckum

it’s very SPECIAL to find that there are co-wives that are trying their way out in their marriage situation. I am not in a polygnous marriage *YET* & i ask Allah to grant my husband a righteous,obedient &beautiful second wife. We agree about the wisdom behind polygny&he is amazed how many wouldn’t accept the idea. I would love to see him taking a second wife&find us working together(cooking,raising kids Islamically&working towards pleasing our man) so may Allah grant him a beautiful,obedient,righteous second wife who is going to be my sister&the love of our husband in sha’ Allah!
