    At least (most) creepy Mormon cultists enter into this sort of thing willingly enough; apparently in Islam, the woman gets no say:

    The bolded line reminds me of a story I heard a while back about people who went into hiding from Islamic radicals for saying or publishing something they found offensive, only to have their locations revealed to their would-be assassins by Islamic police officers who felt it more important to oblige religious laws than national ones.

    a woman being forced into it, is against Islam, in fact a reading of how one can have more then one wife in the Koran makes it almost impossible for a man to do it. And the roots of why it was done in the culture make sense at the time, though today I think just reserved for the wealthy mostly as status thing and many would still say against Islam.
