Lady ties the knot with twin brothers
A Rwandan woman identified as Marie Josiane, has married two brothers who are identical twins.
The young lady revealed that she first dated the elder twin who did not disclose that he had an identical brother. In a video shared by Afrimax TV, Marie said had never seen them together.
However, on one faithful day she met, hugged and kissed the other brother without knowing that he was not the one she was dating.
The second twin then fell for her, but when they all realized what had happened, they chose to happily be in an polyandrous relationship.
The woman also revealed that hate or envy does not exist between the two brothers due to the fact that they are both married to one woman.
The three have been staying together for the past two years and counting.
The twin brothers say due to the nature of their marriage, people say a lot of things but they always turn a deaf ear because they are happy sharing her. They are expecting their first born soon.
Polyandry is the marriage of a woman to two or more men at the same time; the term derives from the Greek polys, “many,” and andros, “man.”
When the husbands in a polyandrous marriage are brothers or are said to be brothers, the institution is called adelphic, or fraternal, polyandry.
The practice of fraternal polyandry is common among the people Tibet in the Nepal parts of China and India. It is based on the belief that a child can have more than one father and usually when two or more brothers marry one woman, they all have equal sexual access to her.
Polyandry is believed to be more likely in societies with scarce environmental resources. It is believed to limit human population growth and enhance child survival.
