Man marries two women in the same wedding ceremony

A man in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh married two women at the same time in presence of his family members and guests.

According to reports Sandeep Uike, a resident of Madhya Pradesh’s Betul, solemnised the marriage with two women on 8th July at a ceremony in Keria village.

One woman hailed from Hoshangabad district and another from Koyalari village of Ghodadongri block. Uike came in contact with the woman from Hoshangabad when he was studying in Bhopal. As the courtship was going on, his family decided to marry him to a girl of their choice from Koyalari village.

This led to a dispute and to resolve this a meeting of the Panchayat was convened by the three families.

It was decided that if both women are ready to live together with Uike, then both of them should be married to him. The girls agreed to this.

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.

However due to the the ongoing coronavirus pandemic situation,  necessary permission is required to be taken to organise any function. Authorities are now be mulling to send notices to the event organisers of the marriage.
