An Indonesian man known as Jekklip recently went viral on social media after news broke out that he got married to two women in a span of a week.
Jekklip tied the knot with his first wife, Linda Herlina on 2nd September and went on to marry his second wife, Vivin a week later on 9th September. This unusual situation happened at the 24-year-old man’s residence in the South Sumatera region.
Upon legalising his marriage with his first wife, Jekklip or Jek later admitted that he already had a sweetheart and they have been together for two months. Jek admitted to Linda that he is madly in love with Vivin and was willing to divorce Linda if she is against being in a polygamous marriage. Linda evidently approved his decision and he proceeded to marry his second wife a few days later.
“I went back to my hometown recently and my grandparents introduced me to my first wife, Linda. Both of our families agreed to get acquainted. As a good grandson, I aimed to cherish and make my family happy so I abided by their request for me to marry Linda last August,” Jekklip remarked in an interview.
“The wedding was only six days apart. When we held the wedding ceremony with Vivian, the family asked Linda to don her wedding dress to make her happy and not feeling left out. I love them both and I hope that I can be fair to both of them,” he added.
While this is certainly uncommon, we wish the trio the best of luck.
