A polygamy video shows Malay women talking about their choice, accompanied by their husband and the first or second wives.
The brief video of unknown origin is circulating on Whatsapp in Malaysia. The language spoken in the video sounds pretty much like Bahasa Malaysia, and the buildings show in the clip looks like it is filmed in Malaysia.
The couples appear to be walking near a 99 Speedmart store, which is a Malaysian brand and is apparently only found in Malaysia.
The video also looks like a promo video, destined to promote polygamy.
Malaysian laws allow polygamy, but it is a state affair when it comes to the registration of polygamous marriages for the Muslims.
The video voice-over says a large number of people met at an event – for polygamy marriages – at an unknown location.
The ceremony involved 14 men who were accompanied by their newly wedded wives and their first wife.
They are seen walking together with a seated crowd in what looks like an exclusive polygamist event.
The first wife wore matching outfits with their husband and the second wife, with all the groups wearing the traditional Malay wedding costumes.
The first wife of each group is actually seen greeting and joining the newly married couple.
At one point in the video, three women and a man are seen on stage wearing a greenish coloured outfit, with the women introducing themselves as the first, second and third wives.
The last shot in the video shows some couples standing by the traditional glutinous rice dish adorned with eggs. This is symbolic of the union of hearts in the Malay culture, which shows they are united in fear of their Creator.
