Hmm. i'm not convinced on the issue of econmic consolidation - a guy would have to be pretty wealthy to have several wives. On the other hand if they all work - or a few work then ok, more income. But three alimonies? Several child support bills? Is it worth it?
Otherwise, those scriptures are fairly clear to me in as far as understanding there is no contradiction. He says divorce is uncool ('God hates divorce') and it is! It is never a good thing - there are no winners. I think the implication is 'make it work, be faithful, love each other'. Now it doesn't always work - reality. And like I said, i do think there are other grounds for divorce apart from adultery.
