Islam strives to protect the women in society by forcing men to take responsibility. Before Islam there was no limit on the number of wives a man could marry. Islam came and limited the men's choices and commanded men to give each of the wives equal rights. In fact, the multiple marriages can be a blessing for women before being blessing for men. Justice in treatment is a must condition in the case of multiple marriage just as it is with a monogamous marriage. Some people find the idea of a man with more than one legal wife to be emotionally disturbing, but some women need a man to support them financially more than they need an exclusive romance. Islamic marriage laws enable men to be financially responsible and honest about their needs, which actually minimize the likelihood of men sneaking around.
