Dehradun: A young woman in northern India is taking brotherly love to a new level.
Rajo Verma has five husbands who are all brothers, and she sleeps with a different one every night.
“Initially it felt a bit awkward,” she told the Sun newspaper. “But I don’t favor one over the other.”
The 21-year-old Verma is also not sure which one fathered her now 18-month-old son.
Verma and first husband Guddu were united in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago, but she has since married Baiju, Sant Ram, Gopal and Dinesh. Baiju is the oldest at 32, while Dinesh is the youngest at 19. The seven of them live in one room in Dehradun.
“We all have sex with her but I’m not jealous,” first husband Guddu told the newspaper. “We’re one big happy family.”
Verma married the four brothers in support of an ancient tradition called polyandry, according to the Sun.
“My mother was also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I had to accept all of them as my husbands,” she said. “I sleep with them in turn. We don’t have beds, just lots of blankets on the floor.
“I get a lot more attention and love than most wives.”
