In many cultures it works very well. And not just many wives (polygyny) but also with one wife and many husbands (polyandry).
I have a good friend from the Middle East and she says the same thing about monogamy. (Not that everyone from the Middle East is polygamous. She just happens to be and I am making a point about different cultures). She plans on moving home and being in a polygamous marriage. She wonders how American women can handle the isolation and raise children with out the help of other women. For her there is a focus on the relationships with the other wives. In her culture they provide emotional support, help with chores, and help raise eachothers children.
Not that I would want to jump into a polygamous marriage but it isn't always what we see on the new.
