According to a map in Wikipedia
, Russia is a country where polygyny is illegal, but the practice is not criminalized. Let's figure out how it all works.
The current family legislation of Russia prohibits a citizen from being married to several women at the same time
. The new marriage is possible only after the dissolution of the previous one. At the same time, more than 20-25 million Muslims live in the country
, and the Koran allows a man to have up to four wives. In addition, polygyny is the norm for followers of a number of religious movements
, for example, Mormons, as well as a custom revered in many nations.
