A YOUNG mum told last night how she has five husbands â€” who are all BROTHERS.
Rajo Verma, 21, lives in a one-room shack with all five, sleeping with a different one each night on a rota.
The housewife has no idea which one is the father of her toddler son.
She said: â€œInitially it felt a bit awkward. But I donâ€™t favour one over the other.â€
Husband Guddu, 21 â€” the first to make her his bride â€” insisted: â€œWe all have sex with her but Iâ€™m not jealous. Weâ€™re one big happy family.â€
The couple got hitched in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago and he remains her only official spouse.
Eldest brother Bajju said: â€œI consider her my wife and sleep with her like my brothers.â€ Rajo cooks, cleans and looks after 18-month-old Jay while her hubbies go out to work in Dehradun, northern India.
She said of the ancient tradition, called polyandry: â€œMy mother was also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I had to accept all of them as my husbands.
â€œI sleep with them in turn. We donâ€™t have beds, just lots of blankets on the floor.
â€œI get a lot more attention and love than most wives.â€
