in touch with me via a phone call his first response was to tell me that he would be getting a second wife. I was stunned with this revelation. I shouted and screamed at him on the phone explaining that he didn’t have the right to enter a polygamous marriage as that was not what I had signed up for in our Muslim marriage, let alone allow myself to be someone’s alternate week of pleasure and flesh.
His words; not mine.
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing on the other side of the phone as my whole world it felt had come crashing down in front of me. In pure agony I screamed out loud; he failed to hear me. Instead, he kept demanding that I gave him permission to have sex with another woman as he had needs to fulfil and with me being abroad in another country, surely this was acceptable.
