(MENAFN -Arab News) AMMAN: Imagine one’s wife gets pregnant and it is followed by a shocking revelation that the real father might be the wife’s husband number two or three or four. This is not a plot of a c-grade movie. This rare polyandry case has taken Jordan by surprise.

The four husbands have taken the dispute over the pregnancy of their shared wife to court.

The London-based Arabic daily Al-Hayat reported this week that a court in Jordan’s northern town of Al-Ramtha is considering the case, which reportedly involves two Syrian men, a Jordanian and a Saudi.

Each man claims to be the real impregnator of the wife, denying knowledge that she was married to another man. The court has resorted to DNA tests to resolve the dispute.

“This is a strange story and the law does not protect dupes,” a reader commented on Al-Hayat’s report, referring to the four husbands.

Another slammed the marriage as “disguised prostitution.” One commentator asked whether the court was “ruling with God's law or with Hollywood law.”
