Illegal marriages of British Muslims


Polygamy is illegal under UK law, but religious marriages are not registered and so are not legally valid – a man might marry his first wife in a civil ceremony and then marry someone else in a religious one.
There are no official figures on the number of people in polygamous marriages in Britain, but Zlakha Ahmed, a project manager of Apna Haq, a woman’s support service based in Rotherham, says that the number of polygamous marriages is growing.

In her experience, it is younger British-born Muslim men who are the driving force for the increase in numbers.
