Meet Saepul Bahri.
The 28-year-old recently made headlines for marrying two women. Both are cousins. The coronavirus pandemic certainly didn’t put a dent in his love life.
According to Lombok Post, the Indonesian had been dating both women, Mustiawati and Hairani, for three months before requesting for their hands in marriage.
However, because he married two cousins at one go, his marriage ceremony which took place on June 20, 2020 went viral on Facebook.
“I had never planned on marrying two of them but after falling in love with them, I just couldn’t decide on marrying one. I just had to marry both instead and my parents also gave me their blessings to proceed with the wedding,” Saepul said.
Saepul said he doesn’t mind that both his wives are related to one another. On the other hand – or hands in this context – his wives, whom Saepul describes as shy and introverted, find him to be responsible and honest.
“Although both are related, it doesn’t bother me as I love them both coupled with the fact that they both have a close relationship with each other,” he said, adding that both Mustiawati and Hairani are also ready to stay with each other and do not mind each other’s company.
The Indonesian worked in Malaysia for nine months to save up money for his marriage.
He also managed to use some of his savings to get a house in Lombok where he would be living with both his wives.
