    Dream Fulfilled: Kenya Legalizes Polygamy Without Consent Of Wife

    Kenya’s parliament has passed a bill allowing men to marry as many women as they want, prompting a furious backlash from female lawmakers who stormed out, reports said Friday.

    The bill, which amended existing marriage legislation, was passed late on Thursday to formalise customary law about marrying more than one person.

    The proposed bill had initially given a wife the right to veto the husband’s choice, but male members of parliament overcame party divisions to push through a text that dropped this clause.

    “When you marry an African woman, she must know the second one is on the way, and a third wife… this is Africa,” MP Junet Mohammed told the house, according to Nairobi’s Capital FM.

    As in many parts of Africa, polygamy is common among traditional communities in Kenya, as well as among the country’s Muslim community, which accounts for up to a fifth of the population.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm afraid that a teenaged girl over there is little more than a penis socket. I know that sounds harsh, but it's pretty much true. I hope your sponsored girl escapes that fate.

    It's part of my church's outreach to a tribe in a very rural part of Kenya, in the rift valley and near the Ugandan border. There is a very large missionary presence in the area.
