You Go Girl! Jordanian Woman Married to Four Men in Rare Case of Middle Eastern Polyandry
Al Bawaba ^ | February 24th, 2014

Posted on 02/24/2014 4:19:43 PM PST by nickcarraway

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 Jordan’s 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-Hayat’s 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.

It's every bit as disgusting when women do it as when men do it.

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.

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.

You would think that being married to one @$$hole would be enough.

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

It’s still gross and demeaning.

Thanks nickcarraway.
...sparked controversy when the four husbands take a dispute over the pregnancy of their shared wife to court... 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... In many Muslim countries, polygamy is common practice but polyandry is legally and religiously prohibited.
If it's prohibited, it probably has happened plenty of times -- although that's not a given in muzzie societies, because murder happens all the time but is semantically redefined, as murder is illegal even there.

Regardless, it's obvious that the four men have similar taste in fabrics.
