If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen the above picture pop up yesterday of my editor introducing me to a group of visiting journalist from Iraq.
And what did they want to know about? Polygamy, of course. Through a translator, they asked me about my job, whether I ever felt uncomfortable (not more than on any other reporting assignment) and whether I would let my husband take another wife (he's plenty happy with the one, thankyouverymuch!)
It was a fun, but short conversation - I was wrapped up in this interesting story of a cop who allegedly swiped a couple's prescription drugs by using a state database.
But, together with this story about South African president Jacob Zuma getting married for the sixth time, it got me thinking about the types of polygamy practiced around the world, and how different the cultures are.
On that note, has anyone read any solid books lately about polygamy and Islam? It's an area I'd like to learn more about.
