Apparently Germany is forking out significant money to one very large Muslim family.
A man who simply goes by the name Ghazia left Syria and migrated to Germany in order to escape the war torn place he once called home. He also happened to bring along his 4 wives and 22 children. According to Islamis law if a man can financially afford it he may have as many wives as he’d like, while living in Syria this requirment was met. However the law doesn’t say anything about migrating to Germany and applying for wellfare to the tune of $400,000 dollars a year in order to support all of them after you leave the country due to war.
Under Islamic law a man can marry up to four wives as long as he is able to give them financial support.
However, German law does not recognize polygamous marriages.
But instead of the marriages being ignored, the refugee was given special leeway to choose his “main wife”.
Gazia, 49, lives with his “main” wife Twasif and their five children in the Rhineland-Palatinate town and visits his other families that live in the surrounding area every few days.
He said he used to run a garage and car hire service in Syria before the country’s descent into civil war, allowing him to provide for his family.
He told German daily Bild he was committed to his families: “In our religion it is my duty to visit every family and to be with them.
