When pregnancy made her too tired to have any sexual relationship with her husband, this was a source of tension between them and Saleh decided to take a second wife. d) Problems with in-laws. i) Problems between the wife and her in-laws. Problems between the wife and her in-laws appear to occur more frequently among the lower class than among the middle and upper classes. In the lower-class, conditions of life are tough which makes it difficult for the husband to live independently of his extended family.

Ii) The husband's financial responsibility towards his different wives. The research revealed that among upper-class polygynous families, husbands do not maintain an equal financial responsibility towards their different wives who live in different houses. The wives and children of a polygynous husband who reside in a separate house from his do not live in the same standard of living of the wife and children who reside in the same house with the husband. This is particularly true when separation between the husband and one of his wives takes place when their children are still young.

This is meant to discover the extent to which the polygynous husband can maintain equal financial treatment among his different wives and the factors which affect his ability to maintain financial equality. The determinants of husband's financial responsibility will be traced by linking the financial responsibility of the husband to the household's residential pattern and the income generated by the wives and children. In dealing with the residence patterns of polygynous households among the different classes, the focus will be on the factors shaping these patterns.
