Are Muslim mothers in law nicer?

A married Premier League footballer has been caught out marrying a second woman in his native Ivory Coast – to the fury of his mistress.

Cheick Tiote, who earns £45,000 a week playing for Newcastle United, reportedly wed Laeticia Doukrou in a traditional ceremony this month, despite already being married to first wife Madah, 25.

The 28-year-old midfielder lives with Madah and their two children in a £1.5million mansion in Ponteland near Newcastle.

But he also has a one-year-old child with mistress Nikki Mpofu, who was furious when she discovered he had married for a second time, it was said.

The 33-year-old Zimbabwean ended her three-year affair with the footballer, claiming he had promised to make her his wife

She reportedly told a friend: ‘He met my mum and said he’s permitted to have several wives. I was comfortable with that.

‘He’s used me like a mop.  He’s just a pig.’

A pig.  That’s pretty harsh for a Muslim

Tiote’s first wife has reportedly forgiven him for marrying another woman.

His agent confirmed … that he had married.

Jean Musampa said: ‘I can say that he did get married and that it is his second marriage.

‘This is nothing unusual. He is a Muslim.’

Although polygamy is illegal in Ivory  Coast, it is still widely practiced.  I wonder how that affects his marital status in the UK?  Surely there is an international agreement that marriages in other countries are still recognised?

Which leads me to wonder if Muslim polygamy is something we have in New Zealand as well?
