Somali Man Weds Two Women on the Same day Because He Wanted many Children and Doesn’t Want His Wives to be Jealous

A young Somali man, identified as Bashir Mohamed has gotten married to two women last week in Kenya. He told BBC that he will encourage other men to do it. The wedding, which took place in Sinai village, Ahmed Dhagah district, was well attended but the guests were surprised by the strange spectacle of a groom and two brides.

The groom says he wedded the two brides at once because he wants to have many children. Polygamy is allowed in Somali culture, but it is unusual for a man to marry two women at the same time, as Mohamed did.

Speaking to BBC Somali, Mohamed said he courted both brides Iqra and Nimo for about eight months and convinced them to marry him.

“I used to bring them together to socialize with me at my home, I used to say openly to both of them that I love them. They were satisfied,” he said.

Bashir further revealed that the idea of marrying the two brides on the same day was his way of ensuring that they wouldn’t get ‘jealous’ as well as ensuring they felt equal since they would be aware from the onset that they were in a polygamous marriage

“I will encourage other men to do it, if they can afford it,” he added.
