Polygamy and its practice inevitably create conflict and crisis among families who practice it. The obvious examples of the terrible consequences of polygamy are Abraham, Jacob, Elkanah, David and Solomon. Abraham’s bearing a son by Hagar brought nothing but trouble for everyone involved. Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah, creating competition. Elkanah loved Hannah more than Peninnah, showing favoritism to Hannah and creating bitterness for Peninnah, and stress for Hannah. David has numerous wives and concubines, but is still not satisfied, pursung Bathsheba. Finally, Solomon’s spiritual bankruptcy is brought about by his many foreign wives who turned him from the Lord and into idolatry.
