Men to marry two wives or be jailed

Sometimes, it seems we live in uncivilized world. Last year, two women were sentenced to rape in India and the news went viral on the internet. Now the whole world is buzzing about Eritrean government who seems to be living in medieval time. While some countries are trying to abolish polygamy, Eritrean men have been reportedly asked by their government to marry more than one wife or risk being jailed for life.

Eritrean men to marry two wives or be jailed

Polygamous family in Africa

Those who love polygamous lifestyle but live in countries where polygamy is an offence may be thinking of going to settle in Eritrea.

It can be recalled that when a pastor married two wives in America, it was considered a taboo and the pastor was reprimanded by many on social media.

According to the government, the order is because there is an acute shortage of men due to the civil war they fought with Ethiopia. Eritrea was annexed by Ethiopia in 1953. The document which was issued by the government reads:

“Based on the law of God in polygamy, and given the circumstances which the country is experiencing in terms of men shortage, the Eritrean department of Religious Affairs has decided on the following:

“First that every man shall marry at least two women and the man who refuses to do so shall be subjected to life imprisonment with hard labour.

“The woman who tries to prevent her husband from marrying another wife shall be punished to life imprisonment.”

Eritrea is a multi-ethnic country, with nine recognized ethnic groups in its population of around six million.

Eritrean men asked to marry two wives or be jailed

Eritrean women are said to be very beautiful and they hearken a lot to their men counterparts largely because most of them depend on the men for their livelihood. The country ranks that worst (189 out of 189) on the World Bank’s ease-of-doing-business index.

The government who called on the male citizens to marry at least two wives, is quite aware of the severe poverty in the country. Therefore it also assured them that it would pay for their marriage ceremonies as well as accommodation.

In most African countries, polygamy is not an offence, provided one has the money to cater for the women. Some African countries such as Kenya even legalized polygamy.

However, some people take advantage of this, misuse the opportunity and end up marrying lots of women who they can hardly take care of.

In Nigeria for instance, Alhaji Abubakar Bello Masaba, who married 86 wives and has over 186 children became the head of the largest family in the world.

NOTE: Eritrean Government has debunked this information which was first published online on a Kenyan news site called “Crazy Monday”, calling it hoax and added that Eritrea DID NOT enact such law or order their male citizens to marry two or more wives.

    “Men to marry two wives or be jailed.” Are you kidding me?

  • Mike says:

    This government needs to be overthrown. If polygamy is allowed in a country, you can encourage the men to marry more women bu no to say marry more than one wife or go to jail

  • Guest says:

    It is good that Eritrean government denied enacting such law because it is actually inhuman.

    I heard that lots of Nigerian guys were googling how to go to Eritrea as this news broke out.

    • Ahmed says:

      Not only nigerians. it is possible lots of americans were already planning to go and settle in Eritrea so they can have the chance to marry many wives because is it not allowed in their counry.

  • The man says:

    I love polygamy but it is not allowed in the US. If two women are ready to marry me, why is our government saying no and saying yes to gay marriage? Sick American government.

    In this awesome scheme of things you receive an A just for effort. Where you confused me was first in the specifics. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more correct here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you what exactly did deliver the results. Your text can be very powerful which is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of exactly how you seem to connect your points which inturn make the conclusion. For now I will yield to your point but hope in the near future you actually link the facts much better.
