I'm wondering why everyone only allowed to marry one? it's their personal affair, why the law ruled that everyone only should have one husband or wife?

in some state of America to have more than one wives.
Same as China not too long ago.
Ironically,  I heard some law-makers in China practise polygamy secretly.
Forgive my English

well, though in china...its monogamy....but we all know tht those married men still have few mistresses out of the marriage..so there is no difference from polygamy....
I don't know if I like you or love you, want you or need you, all I know is I love the feeling I get when I'm near you.

the men that have a few mistresses out of their marriages are still the minority...! this group of men live a somewhat 'miserable' life as they've got to cheat on their wives, racking their brains...! quarrels follow after being caught in bed with their mistresses by the sorehead wives, and then fight, and their relations finally end up in court...!

I think monogamy is too much a part of most cultures on earth for polygamy to be made legal. Within some marriages, couples may agree to such a thing, and that's fine; as long as there's a mutual understanding, who can argue? But can you imagine the possible mixed messages--an old-fashioned woman or man getting into a marriage, hoping to spend the rest of her/his life devoted to a devoted partner, just to realize that the spouse wants to add a second or third wife/husband? Yikes!

but how many couples can reach a mutual understanding that allows one party of the marriage to have a second or third wife...! it's in no way an easy thing to do as long as those marriage-related feelings are involved in their relations...! however some exceptions do exist for those couples whose marriges are money oriented..., !!!!

in arabic countries...a man can have 7 wives....


Please tell, in exactly which "Arabic" countries can a man have 7 wives?

Islamic law would allow 4 wives (IF you are rich enough to treat all 4 well and equally), but there is only one Islamic state in the world (two if you count Iran).
