Two many wives

Man convicted of bigamy

A 47-year-old St Philip man has been fined $7,500, payable in three months time, after he admitted back in March to committing bigamy.

Curtis Cadogan of 277 Emerald Park West pleaded guilty to taking Keisha Greenidge as his wife on August 25, 2012 even though he was still married to Ingrid Cadogan.

When Cadogan pleaded guilty on March 23, Principal Crown Counsel Alliston Seale, who prosecuted the case, explained that the first wife was in the process of divorcing her husband, but the papers were never served on him, as she was unable to locate him after he moved out of their marital home.

If Cadogan fails to pay the amount imposed on him by Madam Justice Michelle Weekes, he will spend three months at HMP Dodds.

    Who cares… If the man and women all agree so be it! Never understood why its illegal in the first place. As long as he can afford to take care of both and any children who cares!

      You can have more than one wife under Barbados law. If you marry according to Muslim rites that is a Muslim marriage not a legal Barbados marriage.

        That should have been “can’t have more than one….”

    Lots of men have many wives…they just don’t marry any of them. It’s why I continue to feed stray cats. They are loyal.

    The law is the law and marriage is a legal contract. You don’t need to be married so why lie about it?

    If such men are capable of pleasing and appeasement by all means .The double standards however for women is scorn ,for a collection of diverse partners

    Can we build Harems in a somewhat socially acceptable way?
