Tunisia became the first Arab state to formally abolish polygamy in 1956,[1] the same year it gained official independence. In current times, Tunisia is still one of the very few predominately-Islamic nations that has legally banned polygamy, another notable nation being Turkey, which has been noted to have a significant amount of western influence.
