"Young Qatari women increasingly seek assurances that the husbands will not enter into polygamous marriages. The permissibility of polygamy is staunchly defended at Islamweb. While defending the 'wisdom' of polygamy, Shaykh ‘Abd Allāh bin Zayd Āl Mahmūd, the late chairman of Qatar’s Sharia Courts, deemed monogamy preferable.

"Legal provisions compelling the polygamist to maintain his previous wife or wives can help limit the incidence of polygamy. For instance, polygamy in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, both wealthy countries, has been declining. The principal factors cited for the decline are galloping living expenses and the rising trend of employment among women" (para 16).
