Argument: Competition between wives for husband's attention erodes the sisterhood
- Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. "The Case Against Polygamy". The Huffington Post. April 23, 2008 - "This competition also erodes the natural fraternity and universal sisterhood of women, engaged as they are, even after marriage, for the affections of the same man.
- In this sense, polygamy fosters unending rivalry and leads not to peace and harmony but to altercation and strife. How can any polygamous marriage be happy when, by its very nature, it does not bring people together but drives them apart."
