A Saudi man who finally decided to marry his long-standing fiancée got the shock of his life when she demanded that he first marry her three friends. Once he overcame his shock, he agreed to her demand.
The unnamed man from the western Saudi town of Taif had thought his fiancée, a school teacher, was joking when she told him that he must marry her three school colleagues before she agrees to marry him.
But he quickly realized the woman was serious when she introduced him to the three women and asked him to marry all of them at the same time.
“He later accepted her demand and married the three, who rented three apartments for their marriage life…the three decided to cooperate to please their husband by meeting every night alternately at each flat to tidy up, cook and wash his clothes,” Kabar Arabic language daily said.
It did not make clear if the man went ahead and married his fiancée.
Moslem men can have four wives at a time but women cannot have more than one husband at the same time.
