Polygamy is perceived by most people as a backward institution of marriage because it deprives women of their rights and places them in a passive and subordinate position. After reading it, I feel sorry for Nepalese women! However, it is quite surprising that there is an even rarer institution of marriage such as polyandry. However, few people know that polyandry, a seemingly more surprising institution of marriage, exists in the world.

In today's society, the term "polyandry" is still quite unfamiliar to most people.

Non-brotherly polyandry

In non-brotherly "polyandry," a group of like-minded men from different families marries a single woman.

In polyandry, there are four main characteristics:

Emphasis on blood relations: It is believed that only brothers who are related by blood are the closest relatives, and wives can only marry their own brothers. Under this system, women are often caught in endless pain and distress. This stress can lead to problems with their mental health and even suicidal thoughts.

Finally, this marriage system also brings great social pressure and prejudice to women.

However, for those living in the Himalayas, polyandry is a realistic option. More and more people are calling for the abolition of this unfair marriage system and focusing on women's rights on this issue.

However, no matter how tortuous the path of reform, we firmly believe that polyandry in Nepal will eventually become history with the passage of time and the development of society.

In general, polyandry in Nepal is a unique cultural phenomenon and social system. They no longer take this institution of marriage for granted, but see it as a backward custom that should be rejected. Although it still exists in some regions, its future is fraught with uncertainty and controversy. This institution of marriage is called polyandry, and it has two types: brotherly and non-brotherly. This change in perception will provide strong ideological support for reform. For those living under this system, they face many challenges and difficulties.

Although the road to reform has been full of hardships and challenges, people's attention and efforts on this issue have undoubtedly brought new hope to women in Nepal.

Brotherly polyandry

In brother polyandry, all brothers of the same generation share a wife.

Secondly, from the perspective of social environment, with the acceleration of urbanization and the development of modern communication technology, the degree of openness of Nepalese society is also increasing. However, with the continuous development and progress of society, this ancient polyandry system is also gradually being eliminated and replaced. In this marriage, the wife usually marries all the brothers of a family, not just one brother.
