Is it tradition for the Jamaican man to have several women? If so, is this behavior accepted by the Jamaican women?
ANSWER: by Wellesley Gayle December 28, 2009
No, it is not a tradition.
I think however that their are social factors, including aspects of the now popular dancehall culture, that glorifies such behaviour, and so, you'll find that not only the Jamaican men are practicing the lifestyle, but some Jamaican women - although not comfortable with it, have come to accept it.
And even then, it is probably still in the minority.
I hope that helps.
Let's watch the other comments this gets.
