Abraham had two wives? What! Well, even though it was not God's plan, many men, including Abraham, took more than one wife. Even King David (yeah, the David that fought Goliath) took more than one wife.
And guess what? Solomon basically had almost a thousand wives! That's a lot! Today, a family with more than one wife or husband is known as a polygamous family.

Why did Abraham have another wife? Well, in Bible Times, children were very important (they still are), especially boys. Children (precisely boys) would carry on their family name; so if a man's wife didn't have a child, he would go and marry another woman.
