Polygamist Politician Faces Acrimonious Divorce

A foreign politician has started divorce proceedings in the UK courts against his fourth wife according to The Telegraph.

Polygamous marriages are lawful in Egypt for all Muslim men.

A millionaire dentist who defeated her ex-husband’s “controlling” mother in a £10million court battle broke her silence over the bitter feud after the hearing concluded on Monday 28 October 2013 reports The London Standard  .
