Polygamy is illegal in Australia and therefore the Australian government will not approve your marriage.

Definitely not. Not many countries in the world approve poligamy. Moreover - if you marry her and then authorities find that you already had one wife, you will be detained.

BTW - I am always impressed by muslims who can have a few wives. How can you guys handle so many women.

You are right. But not only muslims are practicing polygamy. The hindu are more worse because they can marry many women as they wanted. Muslims However, has their rules as well. they are allowed to marry up to 4 wives and a man has to provide separate living accommodation for each of his wives. & he needs to treat them equally, to give them time equally. I think being a second wife 3rd & 4th wife of Muslim is much better than a mistress without any legal rights.

Aimhigh, not sure where you got that information about hindus. It is not correct. They do not practice polygamy!

In the ancient past some of the rajahs and high warrior casts did have many wives.

Polygamy is a punishable offence under the Indian penal code.

Scroll down and read to the subheading Polygamy in contemporary Indian society

If you get five posts up daniella, you should be able to PM someone by clicking on their name at the post and a box with options will appear.
Not sure whether it'll work with browndaddy or whether he will be able to respond until he has five posts.
Just be wary though as it is the internet after all.

Polygamy

Short answer. No! Australia is NOT a Muslim country nor is it a polygamous society. You would need to go back to Malaysia where that is legal.
