The Men With Many Wives (Full Documentary) – Real Stories


Polygamy – the practice of having more than one wife – is illegal in the UK. Despite this, the number of polygamous marriages is rising. The question is, why? To find out, this investigative documentary goes into people’s homes, Muslim community centres and matchmaking services to get answers to some downright awkward questions like: Why exactly do the men need more than one wife? Why would a woman give up her legal rights to marry a man who already has a wife? Through individual testimonies by men and women involved, the film sheds light on one of the most contentious issues facing Britain’s Muslim community.
