Ministers to bar polygamists from claiming extra benefits

“The Government is set to stop men who are married to multiple women from claiming extra benefits payments.

Last year it emerged that the number of polygamous relationships among British Muslims is increasing. Polygamy is currently illegal in Britain, but there are concerns redefining marriage for homosexuals could could pave the way for polygamy to be recognised.


Currently men who have married more than one woman in countries where the practice is legal before coming to the UK are allowed to receive multiple benefits.”
