A TikTok user named Mister Lustin aka Emmanuel Lustin has gone viral for marrying his ten wives in a lavish ceremony. The user, who goes by the handle @misterlustin, posted a video showing the wedding photo he took with his ten wives after tying the knot with all of them. The video has been viewed million of times, and has received mixed reactions from the viewers.
How Common is Polygamy?
Polygamy, or the practice of having more than one spouse, is not very common in most parts of the world. In fact, it is illegal in many countries, and is often associated with negative connotations such as oppression, exploitation, and abuse. However, having multiple wives is considered normal and acceptable in some cultures, especially in Africa and Asia. According to a study by the Pew Research Center, about 16% of the world’s population lives in countries where polygamy is legal or tolerated.
Studies Show There are Benefits of Having Multiple Wives
Some of the reasons why some people choose to have multiple wives include religious beliefs, cultural traditions, economic benefits, social status, and personal preferences. Some also argue that having multiple wives is better from a scientific perspective, because it limits the chances of having bad genes show up over and over again.
A study by the University of Utah found that polygamous men have more children and grandchildren than monogamous men, and that their offspring have higher genetic diversity and lower risk of inherited diseases.
The Negatives of Polygamy
However, having multiple wives also comes with many challenges and drawbacks. Some of the problems that polygamous families face include jealousy, conflict, inequality, discrimination, legal issues, and psychological stress. A study by the University of British Columbia found that polygamous societies tend to have higher rates of violence, crime, poverty, and gender inequality than monogamous societies.
Mister Lustin did not reveal much about his personal life or his reasons for marrying his ten wives. Hopefully he loves them all equally, and that they are happy together.
He clearly does not care about what other people think or say about him or his family. He seems proud of his lifestyle. At the end of the day you can’t knock a man for living life how he wants.
