    Samarra: Abdul Rahman Nayef Al Obaidi, a 22-year-old Iraqi farmer, fell in love with two women, but instead of choosing between them, he married both in one night in a small village in central Iraq.
    The wedding ceremony for Obaidi and two of his cousins, Intidhar, 17, and Suad, 22, was held on April 6 at his family home in Al Laqlaq village, north of Tikrit.

    The ceremony was attended by the families of his two brides, relatives and friends, who were happy and surprised.

    Parents encouraged him

    Obaidi, the youngest of five sons, said that he informed his parents about his plan to marry his two cousins in one night and they encouraged him, though many of his relatives were against the idea.
    "It took me less than one month to make a final decision because the two families are my relatives and I love the two girls," Obaidi said.
    The most important step was to persuade the two young women.
    Intidhar said: "He told me, 'We will marry, me, you and Suad, in one night, so what do you say?' And I told him it is all right, if you treat us both the same way".
    Islam permits men to marry up to four women, but stipulates that the wives must be treated equally.

    Persuaded
    Suad said she was surprised when Obaidi told her about his idea, but he persuaded her to go along.
    Obaidi's older brother Salman played the role of mediator in the negotiations with the two families, and succeeded in making his brother's dream come true.

    His father, Nayef Hamid said he feels proud of his son, although he is the only of the five sons to marry two women.
    Hamid said that he is ready to support all his sons if they decide to marry twice.

    Obaidi's mother, Rasmiya Mohammad too said she supported her son and did not want him to feel sad because he loves the two women.
