I’m a 30-year-old woman

who is dating a married man

from Zimbabwe. He wants to make

me his second wife. The problem is

that, his first wife doesn’t agree to

this. She even threatened to kill me.

Sis Naledi answers:

Polygamous marriages work

better when there is consent

from the other spouse so that

there is harmony in the marriage.

If you go against the first wife’s

will, there will definitely be turmoil.

Let your partner find a way to

address the matter with his family

before you get married.

You can get the legal protection

from the court if you are in danger.
