Eritrea Demands Men Marry At Least Two Wives
Is this a joke??
Activists in Africa have recently posted a document on Facebook allegedly from the Eritrean government demanding local men marry at least two wives due to men killed during the civil war with Ethiopia.
“Based on the law of God in polygamy, and given the circumstances in 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.”
