Polygamy On The Rise In Norway

Norway's Directorate of Immigration reports that despite being illegal, there are an increasing number of men with multiple wives in Norway. The reason is that married men travel to countries where polygamy is legal and then add a wife.  Norway is considering tightening its rules to discourage polygamy, although so far men have been allowed to bring their second wife into the country.
