A marriage should be treated with the utmost respect.
This film talks about the grand marriage being necessary for a man to reach high social status ( and respect). For the women, it's great source of pride, and also provides them with social status. Whilst I have my views on Polygamy, I'll save them for another post. Ultimately it is preferable to lying and cheating. Yet, believe it or not, there are men in polygamous marriages who still cheat, and indulge in affairs outside of that structure... so you tell me? What's it really about?.
Yes, will look at that in another post
