I stumbled on this item while reading through The Sun newspapers, read it, and couldn't believe my eyes. I realized I needed to come present you with this narrative the more I read because, believe me when I say, it's wild! People are truly amazing.
Without further ado, let me jump right into the story.
Polygamy is still commonly practiced in many African societies, as you may or may not be aware. A number of males in Igbide and Enwhe, both villages in Delta State's Isoko South Local Government Area, practice polygamy.
Now what is surprising would be that an increasing percentage of men are preferring to conduct multiple engagement procedures on the same day! Mr. Othuko Uloho, who married two women in April of this year, put it this way: "You plan it when you want to do it." You can go to the first one and make a reservation for the bride price to be taken from morning to noon because we are from the same village. The other will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. The next day, you'll be in charge of reception.
Now the question is:
What makes you think someone would want to do something like this?
Not only that but tying the knot with two different women on the same day? So this is the part of the story I'm most excited to share with you.
Justification of "Uloho"
Mr. Othuko Uloho explained as he should neither do this out of love for the two women or because of the widely held belief that women now outweigh men. For the following reasons, Mr. Uloho married two different women on the same day:
My father only married one woman, so I had to marry two to catch up to him. When my father was still living, he urged me to live above him. I needed two, and he only had one.
It's as simple as that. That's how he justifies himself. He opted to marry two wives instead of one, as his father had done, in order to outdo his father. Isn't it intriguing? This is the first time I've ever heard something like this.
