    In modern Jordan, polygamy has both its critics and supporters.

    Those in favour, such as the recently launched Committee for Supporting Polygamy, see it as a practical solution to the rising number of unmarried women.

    But critics say there are as many number of unmarried women as men due to the heavy cost of weddings.
