Wife agrees to husband marrying her cousin

Have you watched Alia Bhatt & Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Kalank’? The movie begins with Sonakshi Sinha (Satya) asking Alia Bhatt (Roop) to marry her husband Aditya Roy Kapur (Dev) as Satya is suffering from Cancer and she’ll die soon. She gets Roop and Dev married so that she can die peacefully with the thought that Roop will take care of her husband for the rest of life.

Now something similar has happened in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

Dileep and Vinita had tied the knot nine-years ago and they have three children together. Vinita said that she was not well and wanted someone trustworthy to take care of her three children. So, she decided to get her husband married to someone else, reports India Today.

Meanwhile, her husband expressed his liking towards her cousin Rachna and said that he wished to marry her since a long time. So it was decided that he will tie the knot with Rachna. But at the wedding ceremony, Dileep decided to marry his wife and her cousin together. So he exchanged the garlands and the nuptial vows with both the sisters together, reports Loksatta.

However, as per India’s Hindu Marriage Act, until and unless you divorce your first wife, your second marriage is not considered legal. But looks like this man took ‘Saali aadhi gharwali hoti hai” saying another level up and ended up making his ‘saali puri gharwali’!
