Marriage

 

Husband and wife relationship

If you want to marry me, marry twin my sister too.

Sipho Njomane's fiancée insists she can only be his wife if he marries her twin sister. The prospective husband to be, is not keen on the idea, as taking two wives and particularly twins is against his faith. Thembi and Thembisile (37) are from Eden Park, Ekurhuleni. At an incredibly young age lost their parents and are inseparable and have vowed to stay together until death divides them.


“I love Sipho, but I cannot marry him and leave my sister behind. We knew we had to stand together no matter what. We vowed that if a man loves only one of us, he is not good enough for either of us.” Said Thembi.



When asked about what he thinks about this proposed arrangement Sipho said, “I do not know what to do. I am getting old and Thembi is the right person for me”. The uncle of the twins feels that if both are willing to marry the same girl, he has no reservation. Sipho should go ahead and marry them both if being separated from the other would make them unhappy. “To marry one and leave the other behind can cause problems. It’s better if they marry the same man to stay as close as they are.” Said the twin’s uncle Mathunjwa Ndima (71).


Will there be happiness in this kind of marriage, only time will tell if or when Sipho decides to marry them or not. But the pressure of not willing to honour your future wife’s dreams will have a repercussion in the long run of the marriage. Most guys will jump at the opportunity without even blinking. Cultural expert believes that Sipho has hit the jackpot as this is a rare opportunity, though it happens. It is like buy one get one free.


In the next article will explore what happens when twin sisters marry the same man, is it happily ever after or does it ends in disaster.
