Jump to: navigation, search

Polygamy is legal in the African nation of Cameroon, contracted frequently for reasons of both status and wealth. It has been reported that polygamy is most often found in rural areas of the country. Even still, it has been said that polygamous unions are slowly beginning to decrease, mainly due to social and economic reasons. There is no limit on how many wives a man can take, which is rare for most nations that allow polygamy.[1]
