She said:

"If his parents do not fight over him, who are you to fight over a married man? So when a man decides he wants to marry, pray that he will get a good wife and one who together you can support and help each other."

The unidentified Kenyan lady also said that it was high time women should stop fighting each other over men and instead switch gears to fighting over education, work, promotion and other better things.

She added:

"Polygamy is there, we accept it, we refuse it, we deny it. It is there. Even the Christian men should stop hiding and going home to their wives, yet they have a side chic somewhere. That is no solution. Introduce them and let them know each other."

The majority of the men in the comment section agreed with her sentiments and asked women to be open to sharing one man as long as he treats them both right.
