A rare polyandry case in the Middle Eastern kingdom of Jordan has sparked controversy when the four husbands take a dispute over the pregnancy of their shared wife to court.
The London-based Arabic daily al-Hayat reported this week that a court in Jordans northern town of al-Ramtha is considering the case, which reportedly involves two Syrian men, a Jordanian and a Saudi Arabian.
Each man claimed to be the real impregnator of the wife, denying awareness that she was married to another man, according to al-Hayat. The court resorted to DNA tests to resolve the dispute.
Many people expressed their shock that such an incident took place in a Muslim society. In many Muslim countries, polygamy is common practice but polyandry is legally and religiously prohibited.
This is a strange story and the law does not protect dupes, a person commented on al-Hayats report, referring to the four husbands.
Another slammed the marriage as disguised prostitution. One commentator asked whether the court was ruling with God's law or with Hollywood law.
Sounds like Jerry Springer needs to hop on plane to the Middle East.
I would so hit that...
They are getting the stone pit ready as we speak.
Who would WANT to live with more than one prick
This story illustrates the shortage of women in the middle east. These guys are in court hoping to establish a paternity that will give them exclusive claims to the mother.
We know what’s in her future...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBH3lNP2Dfs
Unlikely in Jordan. They’ve got a “brutal dictator” who has ruled that women have rights.
“They are getting the stone pit ready as we speak.”
I think you have the answer. I was going to ask if they are going to draw straws to see who gets to behead her, but if they stone her, then all four of them can join the party.
Have they no Internet?
That may give three camels a rest, anyway.
You would think that being married to one @$$hole would be enough.
“I would so hit that...
Hate to tell you but that was the husband!!!
This is how it was with mormons since a man might marry several women and those women could be married to several men.
STD’s would travel fast
Miley Virus might have already purchased plane tickets
