Here come the brides: Polygamy club woos Malaysia
RAWANG, Malaysia – When she was practicing law, Kartini Maarof once went beyond the call of duty for her divorce client.
She arranged for Rohaya Mohamad, a mother of seven, to be married again , to Kartini’s own husband.
The spouse they have shared for a decade is 43-year-old Ikramullah Ashaari, who has four wives and 17 children. His 72-year-old father has 38 offspring from five marriages, without ever having flouted Islam’s prescribed limit of four wives at a time.
In this Sept 2, 2009 photo, polygamist Mohamamd Ikramullah Ashaari is seen in his home with wives Kartini, left, and Junaidah, second from left in white, and family in Sepang, south of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
