Young British Muslims are fuelling a rise in Sharia weddings and secret polygamous marriages, claims Islamic family lawyer
Young British Muslims are increasingly opting for Sharia marriages – sparking fears of a rise in 'secret polygamy', it was claimed last night.
Around 100,000 couples are living under such arrangements, which are not recognised under UK law.
Because the practice bypasses register offices, it is feared men are taking more than one wife without the authorities' knowledge.
