Multiple Wives, Hidden Lives 14:00, 2009 (Ref: EU09752)


We have an exclusive film about the practice of polygamy in the UK – which has reached record proportions. A number of British Muslims are ‘marrying’ multiple wives in unregistered religious ceremonies – a practice most common amongst younger Muslim men. In this film made for the BBC we speak to one woman (anonymously) who fled a polygamous marriage and another Muslim woman who actively sought a polygamous marriage.
