    Yes. But it is also a debatable point considering how they treated her. She was the most respected wife of any of the Pandavas. Mahabharata happened due to her.

    I thought they were not allowed to marry outside and decided to share wife.
    So why was Draupadi made common wife?? I do not get this at all. What was the reason?? Was it some legal pact, where Draupadi would become legally wife in the sense of look after everyone, but intimacy with only Arjuna, then that makes more sense. But if she was asked to sleep with them all, then Pandavas are just as much human waste as much as the Kauravas. Good thing Krishan destroyed both sides.

    Hindu Kings too had multiple wives in the ancient era.

    NO. She slept with each Pandava for two months in a year and last two months were her to decide with whom she wants to sleep. That is how she had five sons from each of the Pandavas who were slayed by Ashwathama on the intervening night of 17th-18th day of the battle. Lord Krishna knew that Ashwathama was "Ansh Avatar" of Lord Shiva and he also knew that no one can ever stand against him in battle, so he took away Pandavas to a river front for the night and that saved the Pandavas while their sons got killed.

    Pls read Kautilya. Multiple marriages were very common to create long lasting friendship treaties between kingdoms. And even commoners were allowed to have multiple wives till 1955. Polygamy within Hindus was abolished by Hindu succession act 1955. Mulayam has two wives and so does Ram Jethmalani. They both had married second time before 1955.

    To convert India into a muslim majority state bcoz while Hindus were stopped from polygamy, Muslims were allowed to continue the practice by Muslim Pt. Nehru.

    That is the most despicable thing.
    Also how did she have kids so fast.
    One kid every two months when it takes 9 months for a normal baby birth?? o was biology different that time??

    Can you explain what was the reason she was made to do this??

    The Sharia Court of India has chosen to debate about Triple Talaq but has shied away from the principles of equality by refusing to discuss Polygamy and Nikah Halala. Do you see how we are still a slave to British and Muslims thru our SC Judges?

    So Hindus were also opposed to polygamy, which possibly existed as an exception in society, and thought it was immoral, which is what allowed it to pass without any resistant, as I understand??
