P.S. 一夫多妻制を採用している社会として中東が知られており、イスラム教の経典であるコーランでは4人までの妻帯が認められています。










<Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「一妻多夫制」=「polygamy」>






「一妻多夫制の世界」を英語にする場合、「Polygamy world」とすればよいですね😊。

PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 1,184 "Polygamy world"


According to the material introduced today "World's Sexual Tradition (Japanese only)", 18% of the world adopt a monogamy system, and there seems to be a lot of polygamy societies overseas.


On the other hand, there exist a custom that one wife having more than one husband at the same time in some areas in the world.


In this book, "Marquesas Island in Polynesia, Tibetan tribe in the Himalayas, Toda people in South India, etc." are introduced.


In case of Marquesas Island, it seems that there were overwhelmingly more men than women for some reason, and at one time it was 2.5 times as many as women.


It seems that polygamy (One wife has several husbands) was born due to population reasons and the material "World's Sexual Tradition" explains as follows.


"On this island, it is considered richer and greater for a wife to have many husbands.


Because it is the number of men, that is, the labor force.


As a result, women on Marquesas do little work, and men often do all the work.


Women on this island are particularly concerned with beauty, because the more beautiful they are, the more husbands they can catch and the richer they are." (Unquote)

P.S. The Middle East is known as a society that adopts the polygamy system, and the Koran, an Islamic scripture, allows up to four wives.


However, multiple wives need to be treated equally, and men who cannot do so will be monogamous.


In the Middle East, where wars broke out during the Islamic empire, many women died and some women became widowed, and polygamy was accepted to support them in the world of Islamic law.


In the Middle East, the decrease in the number of men led to polyandry, and in the Marquesas tribe of Borneo, the number of men increased, resulting in polyandry.


There is history in the structure of society 😊.
