Can A Woman Marry More Than One Husband?

Toyin Lawani

Fashion mogul, celebrity stylist designer, single mum of 2 and owner of Tiannah's Empire, Toyin Lawani, has said that she would marry as many husbands as she wants when she clocks 40. The fashion designer said this because of the infidelity of most men in recent failed marriages. She also went ahead to question the  double standards of men been able to marry as many wives as they want why women can not.

This has made her put out a strong statement saying that a women can marry as many husbands as she wants provided she has the money. So in the case of a cheating husband, you can dump him and replace him with another. She finally concluded her statement with an advise to the young ladies to double their hustle so that no man would be able to use them anyhow they want or replace them with another woman.


In your own opinion, do you think this advise of getting married to another man or woman because of a cheating partner is advisable?

  • No I don't think a woman can marry two husband at a time even the Bible make us to understand that we cannot save two master's at a time unless she will marry one year and leave that one to another one

  • According to my tribe rules, a woman married isn't even supposed to sleep with another man talk more of marrying another husband. The only condition that permits you to marry another husband is if you as the lady was very young when your husband passes away then the family of your husband can allow you to go or they can even say no.  In conclusion isn't good.

  • Many women have being doing it but not leaving with the men in the same house, it's not possible! I can imagine how it will be when women start marrying more than one man in the same house. I don't want to imagine what will happen again. Lol

  • Honestly the way people carry this feminist thing on there head is really funny,  like how can you possibly marry more than one husband? Its true she has money and can marry the number of men she wants ,yes but at the end she is still loosing because she will still be the one to bear the pregnancy , provide for the men and this men will sit at home doing nothing . I don't care what her reasons are its still meaningless.

  • In my own opinion I think that if both partner claim to really love each other then there would be no need for cheating let alone getting married to another person.

  • This method is completely unethical, it is against both social and moral laws.

    Women marrying more than one man will definitely be a disazdis to the world.

    Biblically, it's also a sin

  • Well... It depends on the tribe you're from. But for Christians. Marrying more than one spouse is not right. When you're in a right marriage that God dwells in. There won't be a space to cheat in the first place.

  • Yes, because if the husband divorce her, she can go ahead and marry another man or if the husband died and her prefer not stay without a man she can remarry, there many cases a woman can marry another husband no problem.

  • The fact here is that, if your husband is going to cheat he will surely do, and if he's not going to cheat, there's no condition that will make him cheat. My advice to ladies is that they should make sure they attain some standards in which no man can bring them down, even if they break up with them.

  • She is suffering from a broken heart. However, cutting off head is not the cure for headache. It will not pay her as a woman.  Actually according to the Bible, the man does not also have the right to change wives as he changes cloth. Such advice is not humanly enough. She should wait and pray till the right man comes

  • Toyin is wrong. I don't think there's any woman out there who can walk into any man's family in view of paying his brooms price to the Man's parents or family. To Toyin she should realize that infidelity as she put it she will be the cause of her broken marriage and not the man.

  • That's very bad because according to our culture woman are to be valued and if a woman marry more than a husband she will lose her worth and value.. ....and I also believe in one man one woman

  • Celebrity with their talks ehn. Polyandry is real but to be honest, i have not seen or heard of that in any part of the country Nigeria. Maybe she wants to set a new record.

  • There are many cases where a woman can marry as many as she want but according to what she is saying, she might be going through a serious pain caused by her ex- husband or ex- boy friend but in the other way round, i think women has a role to play to keep thier husband to themselves. Yes, a big role in  the other room.

  • I don't think marrying many men for a woman is the best at all. Even healthwise it is very dangerous for a woman. Morally it is bad for a responsible lady to be changing men like clothes. And the worst of it all is the children involved definitely they will become a future problem.

    If your husband cheats it is not a ticket for a lady to be jumping from one man to another

  • I don't so, that unethical and morally wrong too, moreover its not a guarantee that the second partner you married isn't going to cheat too, its like creating a bigger problem.

  • In every marriage there's always ups and downs, but I don't see divorce to be the very best option, but of the situation really need you to divorce it's better, than just be in psychological trauma, so after divorce another man will surely come, but who knows, it may be better than the previous one or more worse, so please think before you act.

  • Based on our culture, it's wrong for any woman to marry multiple husbands, because women needs to be submissive to their husband and their husband needs to love them.

  • If she wants to marry more than one husband then she can go over to India and other Asian Countries where it is a normal thing to do and not here in Africa which is not part of our culture

  • That would be wrong..having many husbands would make you look like a whore..I think she’s just heartbroken and hasn’t seen the perfect person for her

    - Adelakun David - 2019-08-27 10:42:14 Quote

  • That's definitely not a solution, if a man can't stay with you alone and not cheat, what makes you think another man will want to share you with a fellow man. The truth is both of them will still cheat, moreover this is morally wrong, biblically its a sin too

  • If we consider the sexual implication of it, I don't know how the lady plans to survive, she'll really have an issues. We have ladies that complain about one man disturbing them almost very night, how much more when they are two men.

  • A woman having three to four husband is not good enough no matter the reason A woman shouldn't be changing Husband like someone changing his or her Mobile Phone, The advice she gave shouldn't be considered at all it is Shameful and Degrading.

  • A woman getting married to more than one man is totally not advisable as it is. I think it should only be applicable to those who are divorced or better still young widows. A woman getting married to more than one man is wrong.

    - Shakirudeen Hassan - 2019-08-27 10:55:54 Quote

  • A woman can marry more than one man but definitely not at same time because marriage in the real sense of it,means a woman have to live together with the man everyday while they are still married but in some cases while the process of divorce is still ongoing,some women go ahead to remarry.

  • No it's not supposed, a woman should get married to only one man. It's actually funny if I get to see a woman get married to two men ,it sounds weird,that is what I feel though. A Woman should be married to one man

  • There is an adage in my language which says that if you divorce a witch man or woman, any man or woman you would marry again would also be a witch. Polyandry is not a good option for woman especially on the ground of men cheating on them. But in any case, I think it is culturally a bizarre for a woman to marry more than one husband at the same time especially in African tradition.

  • For crying out loud, how on earth will a  woman marry more than one husband? How can she cope in bringing up her home? When the children of the first husband need her the most, she will be no where to be found because she is staying with her second husband children.

    In my opinion, it is an error for a woman to marry more than one husband.

    - James Agada - 2019-08-27 11:02:05 Quote

  • To me is not advisable she can approach her husband and share her concerns and express her need for verification. You have probably had a history of pushing away suspicious thoughts and labelling them as ridiculous, or of just having no clue that something was going on. Often, to hide your suspicions feels like you are sticking your head in the sand.

  • Marrying more than one husband is polyandry, it is commonly practices in India where there is a lower concentration of men to women, to them the practice is seen as normal... However in most African countries especially Nigeria, marrying more than one husband is seen as a sacrilege. The act is more or less a cultural practice varying from place to place

  • This is not possible. I think she is just hearbroken because i dont think she can handle more than one man. Except if she decide to keep boyfriends that is understandable but marrying more than one man is not possible

  • No it is not.  Cheating in marriage is very bad but then, neither of the spouses is allowed under God to go and do the unseemly if one goes into cheating for whatever reason. The best thing a woman can do when her husband is found cheating is to pray and seek the face of God till she wins her husband's heart back.

    Going to marry another man outside marriage for whatever reason is not justifiable.

  • A woman marrying more than one man is wrong biblically and socially. It makes the woman look irresponsible. I think she should just keep herself until she finds the right man

    - Ifeoluwa Micheal - 2019-08-27 11:14:02 Quote

  • God is against men/women marrying more than one wife/husband as it were except in cases of death of the first spouse but polygamy and polyandry are part of the errors of today's society.

    Like some people will say,instead of marrying more than one wife,upgrade the very first one u married and live happily ever after. There is no happiness in marrying more than one wife or husband but make sure the foundation of the marriage is solid to avoid wants of other partners

  • In my own opinion, whatever it is that has been identified to be norms and traditions should be keenly followed.  It's been said that when a woman gets married to more than one husband, such is a prostitute and is considered as abomination. As a woman, getting married to more than one husband is like bringing suffering to oneself because it is the woman that will suffer the pain most. We can't compare our composition to that of a man but if you have the capacity to satisfy them, you are good to go. We are all entitled to our decisions.

  • I don't buy the idea of a woman marrying more than one husband, the more she changes husband more the frustrated she will be. Let go off the anger and settle issue

  • In my own opinion I assume that if both companion declare to clearly love every other then there might be no need for dishonest not to mention getting married to every other person. properly... It relies upon at the tribe you're from. But for Christians. Marrying more than one partner isn't proper. While you're in a proper marriage that God dwells in. There might not be a area to cheat within the first location.

  • In this modern age getting married to two wives doesn't give you the power and respect like it used to be rather it gives the society the impression that you're ignorant.  A woman can marry two husbands if she pleases but how will she cope with them When we all know that generally men are jealous 

    Good luck

  • She is trying to get faster than her shadow because no matter what, man is still the pillar of his home where the woman stands on. Therefore it's never in her hands to take such measure probably, in the sense that is totally disregard to the man despite her wealth. But she should relate the issue to God and wait to see it solved and, via that a good wife build her home.

  • Polyandry is not advisable for women. According to the Bible, of your spouse isn’t dead, you are not allowed to marry another. Marrying more than on man at the same time is not a good thing to do.

  • The advise is not good if you continue to marry once your partner cheats on you, you will just end up marrying 20 husbands with 2 years and that is very wrong

  • I don't think I have ever meet such situation even women don't like to share their man talk less of them trying to get married to another person while they are still marry with the first husband so it's not possible 

    - Nkemdi Victor - 2019-08-27 11:36:56 Quote

  • This is quite funny though,  first of, before making some decisions it's important to take steps based on the perspective of the society & culture that raised you. It is said that women could be jealous but men are of a more jealous spirit. Never in our society will such marriage work, such woman will fallout miserable because it takes a lot to properly manage even one man talk less of two (2) .

  • I don't think the advice is good.....moreover it doesn't earn you respect and you can't just because your marriage failed expect others not to get married but rather work on issues that cause your failed marriage

    - Adesanmi Olayiwonuola - 2019-08-27 11:39:20 Quote

  • It is not advisable, but it also depend on the situation she is facing, the best is to stay with one husband because u dont know what problem u will face with other man out there..

  • I don't think it is morally or spiritually right for a woman to marry more than one husband eventhough in Islam, a man can marry more than one wife with conditions attached but it is not applicable to a woman. 

    - Emmanuel Samson - 2019-08-27 11:43:05 Quote

  • A woman who is in her right senses would understand the fact that marrying as many husbands as possible is absolutely nonsense, a wayward and unreasonable life which cannot be left for the upcoming generation.
