An Indonesian woman was left shocked when her fiancé’s ex-girlfriend showed up at her wedding and asked him to marry her too. Nur Khusnul Kotimah, 20, from Lombok Tengah, Indonesia, gave in to the situation as her fiancé, Korik Akbar, 20, agreed to marry his ex-girlfriend, Yunita Ruri, 21, too.

 

Yunita found about Kori’s marriage after friends congratulated the couple on social media. “My husband’s ex-girlfriend found out about our plans to get married through social media, as many friends were congratulating us. Because of that, she asked to be his wife too,” Nur told Harian Metro.

 

Nur and Koik were getting married after the Merariq ritual in which the bride is ‘kidnapped‘ by the groom and brought to his home, with the consent of her family.

 

Soon after Nur reached Korik’s house, another woman arrived there and asked to be married to him as well.

 

Korik said that he was shocked at the arrival of his ex-girlfriend who had dated in 2016.

 

“I wasn’t expecting it and was shocked. But, upon discussing with the family, I made the decision to marry both the girls. The dowry for both was the same, which is 1.75 million Rupiah,” Korik said.

 

However, he added that he feels burdened by the decision of marrying both the women as he is currently unemployed and now has both of them relying on him.

 

Earlier this year, an Indonesian bride asked for her husband’s permission to hug her ex-boyfriend at their wedding. Surprisingly, the husband gave his consent with a smile and watched them hug each other. The ex-boyfriend then turned to the groom to shook hands with him too. The groom went on for a hug too.

 

Polygamy is legal in Indonesia, the largest Muslim population in the world. A Muslim man may take up to four wives. As allowed by Islam, a man may take more than one wife as long as he treats them equally and can financially support them all.
