In what could be first of its kind wedding, a man in Madhya Pradesh shared nuptial vows with two women in the same mandap in front of his friends, family and relatives.
Sandeep Uike, a resident of Madhya Pradesh’s Betul, solemnised the marriage with two women at a ceremony in Keria village under Ghodadongri block, about 40 km from Betul district headquarters on July 8.
Now the district magistrate is investigating the issue.
The man had married two women one from Hoshangabad district and another from Koyalari village of Ghodadongri block. Uike had met the girl from Hoshangabad when he used to study at college and wanted to tie knots with her.
However, his parents had fixed his marriage with the girl from Koyalari village. This led to a dispute and the case reached the Panchayat.
There it was decided if both women are comfortable with living with Uike, then they both can get married to him. Surprisingly, the women agreed to it.
The wedding was held in Keria village with all norms intact and in the presence of guests and families.
Mishrilal Parate, vice-president of Janpad Panchayat Ghodadongri and a witness to the marriage, said that the three families had no objection and themselves decided to go ahead with the marriage.
I know, you have questions. And so do I.
