Polygamism and monogamism have co-existed in many cultures for years. Evidence abound in the Bible that King Solomon, the wisest person in his time was a polygamist. Was he a Christian? As the world population grew larger, and Christian religion began spreading; the concept of monogamism began to grow tap-root. But, the believers of the cultures of marrying multiple wives put their feet on the ground against monogamism. Unfortunately for the practitioners of monogamism, the Islam religion and Africans bought into polygamism.
Either way, with all things being equal, do a monogamist live longer than a polygamist? Evidence abound that people who have more sex live longer than the individuals who have les sexs(like the French people….lol!). Common sense will dictate that the man with plenty wives will be more busy sexually. Besides, women of different shapes and magnitudes, races and class are attracted to men without boredom. Obviously, the polygamist will have a filled weekly schedule of his sexual activities fitting in the petit, tall, short, slim, thick women as desired. What a privilege? Should women be allowed to marry multiple men at the same time? Furthermore, researchers believed that sex is good exercise for both participants (man and women), reduces stress, modulate headache, reduces blood pressure and increases the happiness index of a woman. Conclusively, there is preponderance of facts that the polygamist will have sex than the monogamist, therefore will live longer. But, do not try this at home……lol!

<p style=”text-align: left;”>Monogamism and polygamism was created by culture and some times individual choice. Evidentially, people began to embrace monogamism due to population explosion created by polygamy at the time of the industrialization era in Europe. As a matter of fact, monogamy thrive mostly in the western world. In addition, African culture promotes polygamy that’s why Africa can be regarded as home of polygamy. Though, some religion like Islam and some traditional religions encourage polygamy too.</p>
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Furthermore, the ability to live long depends on many factors. Some of them are; Genetic, prenatal and childhood condition, marital status, socio economic status, education, ethnicity/migrant status and lifestyle. However, experts claim that those who have more sex, live longer than those who have less. Obviously, a polygamist have a packed week schedule of sexual activities. Truly, researchers have proven that sex controls blood pressure and regulates the entire body system. If this is true, it means the polygamist stand a better chance to live long since it’s certain they have more sex than the monogamist.</p>

Polygamy is no longer encouraging because it causes more division in any family than unity.
