Polygamy is a common phenomenon in Saudi Arabia. People finding a good match has no hesitation in getting married multiple times in Saudi Arabia due to cultural values and availability of finance for a respective class of society.[irp]
Recently surprising news broke out when a person who visited a home to find a good match for his son got married himself with elder sister of the girl. A Saudi Father visited a family to plan marriage of his son.
During their visit, the mother of the expected bride told them that she is not willing to let her younger daughter get married before her elder daughter. She asked the father and son that they have to wait until she finds a good match for her elder daughter.
She also offered to the son that if he is willing to accept her elder daughter as her bride, she has no issues in strengthening the relationship. Listening to this, the son became frustrated as he was not willing to get married to that girl.
In agony, he left the house but his father stayed there. Meanwhile, the father offered the mother of girls that if she has no issues, he wants to marry her elder daughter. The lady agreed the proposal and the newlywed couple started their life happily.
The interesting incident went viral on the internet as well. It is not known that after the marriage of elder sister, the son of that person got married to the younger sister or not.
Polygamy is not something new in Saudi culture but such kind of interesting marriages are rare in Kingdom to happen. Being Muslim we believe that God has already set match for each person and at the appropriate time, a couple gets together by any mean. Probably the same thing has happened in this interesting case.
