There is a portal to find your second wife. Well, this may sound interesting. But, the fact is that this is a serious effort for finding your life partner through the digital media. It is not clear when the website began functioning. However, the whois records show that this website was registered in 2003.
The website proposes to create opportunities for willing Muslim men and women to formalize the Sunnah of Nikah. In Islam, the polygamous relationship are a form of security for vulnerable women such as divorcees, widows or single women who are above the normal marrying age (it varies in different cultures).
Second Wife is a brainchild of Azad Chaiwala who considers that this Islamic principle is lost in the current world. He has chosen a different way to propagate the idea in a relatively opposing world. The location of this website is also a controversial choice as United Kingdom bans any form of polygamous relationships.
Membership of Second Wife
The portal has a stringent membership criteria and ensures that no one can make a fake profile on its website. Moreover, the moderators are continuously checking any sort of profanity or illegal communication. Thus, it seems to be a better place where vulnerable women can find their life partners with relative ease and privacy. The Second Wife is part of Polygamy.com group.
“We are the first, the largest and only service of this kind. We have over 400,000 members. Pornography, easy hookups, extra marital affairs, prostitution is now ever so common & accessible for non-Muslim men & women. Polygamy is a much more safer & honorable option for both Muslim men and women,” claims the website.
The portal further claims that it is strictly endorsing religious and faith based polygamous marriages. Thus, it asks users to verify the legal formalities regarding the polygamous marriages in their country of origin or where they live, and act as per the law.
Polygamous marriages are endorsed in almost all Muslim countries. However, a number of Western countries have laws which criminalize polygamous marriages.
