An article about why men in Egypt can cheat on their wives caused a scandal at the parliament level.
An article about female polygamy caused such a scandal in Egypt that the matter has already reached the parliament
The article was published in the newspaper Al Masry Al Youm, its author was a journalist from Saudi Arabia Nadine al-Bedair. The article has already been strongly condemned by some religious figures, calling it offensive and un-Islamic. But there is another point of view that the material highlights the burning issues of the bad attitude of some husbands towards their wives.
It is clear that Nadine al-Bedair wanted to create a scandal with her article, and she did. The journalist suggested that polygamy should either be allowed for both men and women, or not allowed for anyone. That is, a man should not be allowed to take a second, third and fourth wife just because he was bored with the first wife.
According to the laws of Islam, a husband can have four wives if he is able to provide them with equal treatment and care. But in practice, the so-called "first" wives get bored with their husbands over the years, and they take on new spouses only to restore the sharpness of sexual sensations.
