I just stumbled on this incredible story from India about Rajo Verma who lives with five brothers as husbands.
Rajo verma, 21, lives in a one room shack with all five, sleeping with a different one each night on a rote.

The housewife has no idea which one is the father of her toddler son. She said: “initially it felt a bit awkward, but I don’t favour one over the other.”
Husband Guddu, 21, the first to make her his bride insisted: “we all have sex with her but I’m not jealous. We are one big happy family. The couple got hitched in arranged Hindu marriage four years ago and he remains her official spouse.

According to custom in their village, she has to take as husbands his brothers Bajju, 32, and Sant Ram, 28, Gopal, 26, and Dinesh who married her last year when he turned 18.

The eldest brother Bajju said: “I consider her my wife and sleep with her like my brothers.” Rajo cooks, cleans and looks after 18 month old Jay while her hubbies go out to work in Dehradun, Northern India.

She said of the ancient tradition, called polyandry: “my mother also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I had to accept all of them as my husbands. “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.”
