Weegy: Polyandry, a form of marriage in which a woman has two or more husbands at the same time was once practiced by several cultures such as the Maasai people in Kenya and northern Tanzania, [ as well as people in Nepal; Nigeria; Bhutan; The Sumerian king Urukagina of Lagash (circa. 2300 BC), was one of the first leaders to have abolished the custom of polyandry in his country, on penalty of death by stoning the woman with rocks upon which her crime was written. The prairie province of Saskatchewan Canada is the only jurisdiction in North America to have "judicially sanctioned" polyandrous unions at a family law court level. Although frowned upon and outlawed by most of the worlds societies, there are societies where people still practice de facto polyandrous arrangements even though they are banned by the law. Polygamy is a form of marriage where a man is allowed two or more wives, and is not only allowed but encouraged by many Muslim countries and is considered a virtue. There are many other cultures who also see polygamy as a virtue but have discontinued or outlawed the practice openly because of the countries laws banning it, the Mormons would be one example. ] (More)
