موجز عن البحث:
The objective was to review research that examined the effects of polygyny (a specific form of polygamy) on children and adolescents. A systematic literature search and review was conducted of research published 1994–2014 that focused on psychological variables, primary data collection, and compared data on children and adolescents from polygynous families with monogamous families. Critical analysis included the relevance of methods to the culture, including the psychometric properties reported. A total of 13 papers satisfied the inclusion criteria. The review found more mental health problems, social problems and lower academic achievement for children and adolescents from polygynous than monogamous families. Similarities between children and adolescents from polygynous and monogamous families included self-esteem, anxiety and depression scores.
Although polygynous family structures appear to have detrimental effects on children and adolescents, the mediating effects of parental education, economy and family functioning need to be investigated.

عنوان المشاركة: Psychological Well-Being and Bullying/Victimisation among Adolescents from Polygamous and Monogamous Families in Saudi Arabia
Family structure is an important context for children’s upbringing. Polygamy is a type of marriage that affects the structure of the family. This research investigated the impact of polygamy (one man married to more than one wife) on adolescents in Saudi Arabia. The research aims were to investigate differences between adolescents from polygamous and monogamous families in the following variables: psychological wellbeing (self-esteem, satisfaction with life, depression) and bullying/ victimization.
Participants were a total of 98 students from schools in Riyadh City; 49 students from polygamous families and 49 students from monogamous families (71 boys, 27 girls; mean age = 15.36 years). Questionnaires and tests to measure demographic variables, self-esteem, satisfaction with life, depression, bullying, and victimization were administered in schools. All tests have been previously validated for use in Saudi Arabia.
The results found statistically significant differences between participants from polygamous and monogamous families in all dependent variables. Adolescents from monogamous families reported higher self-esteem and satisfaction with life than adolescents from polygamous families. Also, adolescents from polygamous families had higher depression, bullying and victimization scores than adolescents from monogamous families.
Conclusions were that polygamy had negative effects on the psychological well-being (self-esteem, satisfaction with life, depression) and behaviour (bullying) of Saudi adolescents.
