That`s probably why polygamy is banned from many nations (because the wealthy can only afford it and the middle/lower class get screwed).
I`m in favor of polygamy. I think it`s natural, and the traditional way it has been done in just about every society. I don`t think a society should force a man to be limited to one wife, if he chooses to have more.
The strong (physically, wealthy, or whatever is viewed as strong) men are able to care for more women, and produce more (strong) kids. That`s the way it should be.
Some might argue that their religion forbids it, but this is not true either. The major religions (like Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, etc.) all do not say anything against having multiple wives, or something like concubines.
I don`t have any experience myself, but I imagine it is not all fun and games for the man either. Just having one wife is a lot responsibility, so I imagine having multiple wives would require a real man.
