"Swaziland’s King Mswati III openly admits the presence of legal polygamy. In fact, King Mswati is perfectly within his rights as monarch to 'choose a new wife every year from among thousands of virgins.'... polygamous unions challenge the value of one woman by prioritizing the significance of one man. As a standard cultural practice, polygamy is unproblematic insofar as it does not promote disease. However, HIV infection is significantly higher among newly married adolescent girls since the men they marry tend to be older, HIV positive, and active participants in polygamous relationships. That is, polygamous marriages perpetuate sexual infection among people who were previously HIV negative" (2).
