Yahoo! News - Saudi Weds Four in One Ceremony to Spite Ex-Wife: "RIYADH (Reuters) - A Saudi man married four women in one night only to prove to his estranged first wife that he was still attractive, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

After the failed marriage which only lasted several months, the man's wife told him that 'no woman would ever marry him,' al-Watan newspaper said.
'So he swore to marry four women just to prove her wrong,' it said.

Polygamy is relatively common in Saudi Arabia, a conservative society with deep Islamic and tribal roots. Under the country's Islamic law, men are allowed to marry up to four wives at the same time. "
