Saudi Arabia Debates Whether Polygamy Is Solution to Rising Issue of Single Women

TEL AVIV – Saudi Arabia has recently become embroiled in a debate over the notion that polygamy could provide the solution to the problem of single women in the kingdom, with some proponents saying men should take three wives – a single woman, a widow, and a divorcee – thus alleviating the burden of spinsters on society.
