Man forced to marry four wives in six months
Unfortunately, I do not have the exact date for this story, but it is from 2006.
A Saudi man is in the hospital after his divorced parents forced him to marry four times within six months.
The battle began when the father insisted the boy should marry a girl from his side of the family.
The mother retaliated by ordering him to wed a girl from her side, reports Arab News quoting Al-Watan Daily.
But the father wasn't happy with the balance of power and insisted on a third wife from his side, to show who was boss.
The mother, not to be outdone, then demanded that her son include another wife from her side of the family.
The son has now been admitted to a hospital for psychological treatment. He is refusing to see his parents or his wives.
I think King Solomon might be able to empathize with this man.-- ARB
