A wedding going viral, is nothing new in the age of the internet. But this one in Indonesia caught the attention of netizens in the largest Muslim nation on earth, Indonesia.
In the video, the man is seated between the two women during the wedding ceremony with a blue cloth on their heads.
It took place in West Kalimantan, in a hamlet in the Airtarap village Kendawangan in the District of Ketapang Regency.
He gave the reason for the unique ceremony: “I do not have the heart to see anyone of them hurt. That is why I decided to marry both at the same time,” he said.
Hence, instead of letting go of both lovers or marrying one, he successfully got both women on board with his plan to marry them at the same time.
Many say it is an unreasonable amount.
Indonesia is no stranger to weird or unique marriages.
In September 2017, a 16-year-old boy got married to a 71-year-old woman against the wishes of the Indonesian authorities, sparking debates on the minimum age of marriage.
The boy had threatened to commit suicide if their families blocked the union, according to some reports.
While the name of the bride and that of his girlfriends are not known, the 16-year-old boy is Selamat Riayadi and his elderly bride is Rohaya. They got married in their home village of Karangendah in the western South Sumatra province of Indonesia. -/TISG
