A Birmingham woman, Haleema Muhammad, says she would only go for a polygamous marriage and nothing else.

Haleema, who travelled to her home country Somalia more than a decade ago and decided to marry a man who already had three wives, says she likes the marriage arrangement because it was less responsibility.

However, she says the hardest thing is sitting at the table and waiting in your tent for your turn.

She says the marriage broke down as she wanted to return to the UK where she has been highlighting the issues. Polygamous marriages are illegal in the UK but the practice goes on and, she says, leaves the wives with a lack of rights.

Whatever rocks your boat…
