Accidental Polygamy: Saudi Father Marries His Daughter to 2 Men

A man who gave his daughter in marriage to two men at the same time is being questioned in Saudi Arabia on charges of violating the provisions of Islamic Shariah and deception.

The Public Prosecution said that the behavior of the father was an appalling breach of ethics and that he must be severely punished.

According to the case documents, the first husband married the daughter and lived with her for two months before he left the Jeddah area and the wife went to her family home to stay with them, Saudi daily Okaz reported on Monday.

However, the husband later received a call informing him that his wife got married again. He managed to contact the second husband who confirmed that he had just married the woman and that they were together in their home.

    There is only one way honor can be reclaimed.
    Stone everyone involved in this case.
    Stone both husbands, stone the “bride”, and then stone the dad twice.

    Or as CNN would report, “An honest mistake.”

    If her first husband took off with her dowry without killing her, he is very unworthy.

    Just cut her in half. There’s a hole at both ends.

    no harm in double dipping the dowry thing, unless you get caught . as for the daughter? muslimas are little more than brood mares anyway

    The second husband may regret he did not demand a virginity test before accepting to pay the father. If the father raised livestock, he would likely sell the same animal to several different people.
