The wife married to FIVE brothers: Rajo, 21, follows a tradition in Indian villages which allows families to hold on to their farmland


 

A young Indian woman has spoken out about being married to five husbands, all of whom are brothers.

Rajo Verma, 21, lives in one room with the siblings and they sleep on blankets on the floor. 

The mother-of-one, who sleeps each night with a different brother, does not know which of her five related husbands is the father of her 18-month-old son.

Happy family: Five brothers (L-R) Sant Ram Verma, 28, Bajju Verma, 32, Gopal Verma, 26, Guddu Verma, 21, and Dinesh Verma, 19, with their shared wife Rajo Verma, 20, and their son Jay Verma

Happy family: Five brothers (L-R) Sant Ram Verma, 28, Bajju Verma, 32, Gopal Verma, 26, Guddu Verma, 21, and Dinesh Verma, 19, with their shared wife Rajo Verma, 20, and their son Jay Verma

The set-up may seem peculiar, but it is tradition in the small village near Dehradun, Northern India, for women to also marry the brothers of their first husband.

She told the Sun: 'Initially it felt a bit awkward. 'But I don't favour one over the other.'

 

Rajo and first husband Guddu wed in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago.

Since then she has married Baiju, 32, Sant Ram, 28, Gopal, 26, and Dinesh, 19 - the latest in the line of husbands - who married her as soon as he turned 18. 

'We all have sex with her but I'm not jealous,' first husband Guddu  - who remains the only official spouse - said. 'We're one big happy family.'

Tradition: he set up may seem peculiar, but it is custom in the small village near Dehradun, Northern India, for women to also marry the brothers of her first husband

The ancient Hindu tradition of polyandry was once widely practised in India, but is now only observed by a minority. 

It sees a woman take more than one husband, typically in areas which are male dominated. 

In fraternal polyandry the woman is expected to marry each of her original husband's brothers. 

It is thought to have arisen from the popular Sanskrit epic of Mahabharatha, which sees Draupadi, daughter of the King of Pancha being married to five brothers. 

The practice is also believed to be a way of keeping farming land in the family. 

Rajo said she knew she was expected to accept all of her husbands, as her own mother had also been married to three brothers. 

She said they sleep together in turn, but that they do not have beds, just 'lots of blankets on the floor'. 

She added: 'I get a lot more attention and love than most wives.'

I noticed that when I am on IF the page I am on keeps going back to home page i.e. IF's main page. What is going on? This has happened on two computers. For example if I am on DM checking something it will refresh and go back to home page.

Is this some way of increasing hits to the website? its irritating me.

Your answer will be appreciated.
