” Polygamy and Polygyny have existed since recorded history and practiced throughout the Ancient Near East, the Far East, the Mediterranean empires, Europe and Britain…Besides legitimate marriage, Temple prostitution in the spoils of war were the two most common sources of women for polygamous men. Records of explorers and missionaries in the Christian era confirmed the widespread practice of  polygamy among native tribes in Africa and America.”
