All couples dream of living their own happy ever after when they enter married life. We wish for a partner who will remain faithful until the end while staying true to the marriage vows made to each other.
However, what if the person that we vowed to stay faithful to for the rest of our lives ends up marrying someone else? Having to be a part of polygamous marriage is definitely not an ideal lifestyle for most women. Unfortunately, this is what happened to a lady from Indonesia who was willing to share her husband’s love with another woman.
Ketika Suamiku Menikahi Mantannya
Recently, a video went viral and circulated on social media showing the resilience of a woman watching her own husband’s wedding. It can be seen in the video that the location of the ceremony was held in a hospital ward. The husband apparently got married for the second time to his high school sweetheart. In the video, the second wife’s face was not visible as she was lying on a hospital bed.
In the video, the woman does not explain the reason her husband got married for a second time. It was revealed that the couple had gotten married at the expense of the first wife’s permission and approval which she consented to before proceeding to the wedding.
“Today my husband married his high school girlfriend for some reason. They got married in front of me at my request and consent,” the video caption reads.
In the same TikTok account, there are follow-up videos of the story after the solemnisation took place. In another video, it was revealed that the husband was reluctant to marry for a second time but was forced by his first wife. His wife intended for him to marry his ex-girlfriend who was lying in the hospital. It was even more heartbreaking when the first wife confessed to being a maid to her husband’s new wife and had previously took care of her.
The plot of the story however, arouses suspicion. The video that was posted on TikTok user @Rumah Pelangi account had managed to acquire sympathy from netizens. Many commented on the fact that the situation resembles the storyline of a famous Indonesian love story “Verses of Love” (Ayat-Ayat Cinta) written by Indonesian writer Habiburrahman El Shirazy.
“Real life Ayat- Ayat Cinta?,” commented one viewer. Due to the similarities and resemblance, many also questioned the validity of the video. Some speculated that it was just a mere gimmick and an act.
The post even garnered comments from fellow Malaysians who were also invested in the story. “I had thought so from the earlier video. It was an act. Because the way she cried is not convincing. You only cry like that in dramas,” commented one Malaysian netizen.
There is still no clarification from the TikTok user regarding the authenticity of the story. What do you guys think?
