Polygamy in Morocco is legal, but very uncommon due to restrictions that were introduced by the government in 2004 that mandated financial qualifications a husband must meet in order to marry a second wife. In addition, a husband must have written permission from his current wife before marrying a second wife. Breaking these rules and marrying without permission from one's current wife can and has resulted in arrests.

[Polygamy] legally becomes theoretically almost impossible if not completely impossible.

Legally, no man may take a second wife without the permission of the first wife, as well as making a case to a judge that he is financially able to support both wives, and their children equally, and that his circumstances are exceptional.
