Justice minister wants to end toleration of polygamy
Justice Minister Heiko Maas said this week that he wants to bring an end to the practice of tolerating polygamous marriages among immigrants in Germany.
"No one who comes here has the right to place their cultural entrenchment or religious thinking over our laws," Maas told Bild newspaper.
"Therefore no multiple marriages will be allowed to be recognized in Germany."
In Germany, marrying another person after you are already married is illegal and punishable by up to three years in prison.
