POLYANDRY – Housewife Has 5 Husbands, Sleeps With Different One Each Night


Rajo Verma, 21, lives in a one-room shack with all five, sleeping with a
different one each night on a rota. The housewife has no idea which one
is the father of her toddler son. She said: “Initially it felt a bit
awkward. But I don’t favour one over the other.”

Husband Guddu, 21 – the first to make her his bride insisted: “We all
have sex with her but I’m not jealous. We’re one big happy family.”
Guddu and Rajo got married in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago
and he remains her only official spouse.

But the custom in
their village is she had to take as husbands his brothers Bajju, 32,
Sant Ram, 28, Gopal, 26, and Dinesh – who married her last year when he

She said of the ancient tradition, called polyandry:
“My mother was also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I
had to accept all of them as my husbands.

“I sleep with them
in turn. We don’t have beds, just lots of blankets on the floor. “I get a
lot more attention and love than most wives.”
