Marry Two Wives OR Be Arrested; Eritrea Gets New Law Ov by fkaz(m): 7:03am On Jan 27, 2016
After polygamy was legalized in Kenya, another country has followed...

Mandatory polygamy by men in Eritrea is being received with a mix of bewilderment and excitement.

Activists have posted a memo by the Government of Eritrea asking men to marry at least two wives due to acute shortage of men occasioned by casualties during the civil war with Ethiopia.

The May 1998 to June 2000 Eritrean/Ethiopian war saw 150,000 soldiers killed from either sides but bigger impact on male population in the Eritrea nation who were then just 4 million people in total.

The statement assures of government support to the polygamous marriages.

The activists translate it thus, “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 .”

A single lady praised their President, saying “He is so
considerate of women! That’s good of him.”
