Question
Hello, What are the laws pertaining to polygemy? I have one wife who is barren and we wish to have a family. I love my wife and have talked with her about this subject in depth, but she has asked me to find out what the laws are first before she will agree. Thank you
Answer
Shalom U'verachah, The answer regarding polygamy is very simple it is totally forbidden. However if you have fertility problems then you can contact me at the Puah Institute in Israel 972-1599-505-022 and I will be happy to offer medical alternatives. Kol Tuv
