> Malaysian men marrying 'secret wives'
Malaysian men are marrying “secret wives” in Pulau Batam through a "cheap" ceremony. The Indonesian island has become the place to go for men who want to take on more than one wife in a nikah ceremony starting from as low as Rp1,000 (27 sen) to Rp10,000 (RM2.70). The marriage status is purportedly considered valid without having to go through the usual documentation process or court procedures as required in Malaysia. It was known among the locals as nikah siri.
