There are thousands of dating websites that enable consumers to search for their soul mates.
Now, a new website enables men to search for a second, third or fourth wife.
SecondWife, was launched as a matchmaking site that allows Muslim men to seek up the four wives permitted by the Koran. The founder of the website said that the site is not only for men.
Women may search SecondWife male profiles and connect with men in the hopes of becoming the second wife. Yusuf Khan, a web developer and entrepreneur, launched the site three months ago.
The site already has more than 3,000 active users. “The key to online success is to find a niche,” Khan said. Aware of Islam and polygamy, he saw an opportunity and decided to go with it.
After doing research, he discovered that there is little competition for polygamous dating. The Koran allows men to marry up to four wives, provided they can support them financially and treat everyone equally.
However, less than 5 percent of Muslims practice polygamy.
