Indonesia man marry 2 girls, pays dowry, protects feelings

Reportedly, the man had decided to marry both of his girlfriends since he could not bear to watch either of them get hurt. As per the Indonesian custom, the man paid dowries to the two bride's families. It was also stated that he married the girls on mutual consent from both of them. 

In the video, we could see the man finding it difficult to recite his vows in the first attempt. However, he gets it right in the second time. In Indonesia, there is a concept called 'Polygamy' according to which a man can marry up to four wives as long as he is capable of managing all of them financially.

The man had reportedly told the local media that he took the decision to support the feelings of both the girls as he does not want them to get hurt. A facebook user named Ani Purwani had shared the video and the pictures of the marriage ceremony which is doing rounds on the social media.
