Do Religions Still Have Arranged Marriages and Polygamy? EPISODE 46

Marriage and religion have always been related, and religions often address the spiritual and ethical components of marriage, but in many cae, marriage customs are based on cultural expectations. That means that while religious teachings may guide some of the taboos, vows, and underpinning ideas of what is expected of a man and woman in their marriage, the details come from the surrounding culture and society. Whether or not a marriage is arranged and the number of partners in a marriage are two aspects of marriage that are heavily effected by the surrounding culture and society.
