Between  1998-200 there was a war between Ethopia and Eritrea.This left over 150,000 men dead out a total 4 million population.This has led to a scarcity in men that has led to , the Grand Mufti, the highest religious authority in the country to make one of the most interesting decrees in recent times-that every man must marry two women or risk jail sentence.


The decree read in part

“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 with life imprisonment,”
