    Saudi man accused of having 6 wives which is two over the limit

    Muslim men can keep up to four wives at a time under sharia, or Islamic law, which is applied in Saudi Arabia.

    But the religious police claim that this guy had six wives.

    More than 1 wife? Why would you do such a thing?

    Shouldn't this be punishable by death?

    It is difficult to understand a culture that is so different; where women aren't allowed to compete in sports because they aren't allowed to wear athletic sportswear, or aren't allowed to drive motor vehicles.

    Re: Saudi man accused of having 6 wives which is two over the limit

    So the question I have is... which of the 6 wives tipped off the authorities? I'm guessing the first one, who is better that she never gets her turn in bed anymore


    Edit while that is stated jokingly, I'm actually serious about that


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    I tend to prefer the 50-60 kg women myself.
