Sham Sharia weddings leave Muslim women exposed to abuse and cheating husbands

AN ESTIMATED 100,000 British Muslim women are being duped into sham Sharia marriage – leaving them exposed to abusive and cheating husbands.

The massive figure highlights a worrying trend of young British Muslim couples opting for such arrangements – which are NOT recognised under British law – and leave men with the polygamous option of having up to four ‘wives’.

Sham ceremonies which are not legally recognized can leave vulnerable women oppressed, with no rights to a fair share of assets if the relationship ends. Under the strictures of Sharia law many others are forced by their communities to return to abusive and sometimes violent husbands.

A leading lawyer dealing with Sharia cases said a “huge rise” in such ceremonies among the 2.7million-strong British Muslim population was behind the growth of “secret polygamy.”

    Arrest them, Polygamy is still illegal in the UK, just make it obvious that even “sham” weddings count and will result in prison and loss of benefits.

    Cheating husbands?
    In a polygamist marriage?

    But all Sharia marriages are shams because of lack of recognition of women and little girls and sex slaves as having authority to consent, or not.

    As the saying goes.
    One wife is not enough.
    Two wives and they are always fighting over who is the favorite.
    Three wives and it will always be two against the prettiest one.
    Four wives is just enough.
    Five or more wives and the welfare officials will usually catch on.

      Five wives and you might not be able to afford the security needed to protect yourself from the four angry men who are unable to find wives because you have taken four more out of the “marketplace” than you should have a right to.

    If all these men have multiples wives then there must be millions of young men with no wives or prospects. Maybe if the Jihadi’s could get laid more often they would be more relaxed. Ban polygamy and Mid East anger might just get solved đŸ˜€

      You are avoiding the big huge homosexual muslim elephant-in-the-closet in the room, so to speak.

        Not sure pent up sexually frustrated gays are the issue but if it is then the next step is to allow freedom for gays and watch them get too busy chasing the male tail to care about jaunting across the dessert looking for towns to invade.

      I don’t think it will work.

      I think it is things like this that drive them to colonize the West. Look what they have available to them in their home countries.


      That would drive even me to murderous insanity.

        This is where the burka comes in handy. And by the looks of some of those ISIL soldiers she would be considered a catch.
