Bedouin father of 67 says he’s got his eye out for wife No. 9

first_imgEMEK HEFER, Israel – With eight wives and 67 children, Shahadeh Abu Arrar has given new meaning to the term “family man.” Abu Arrar, 58, is a member of Israel’s impoverished Bedouin Arab community. But even in a traditional nomadic society where men commonly have several wives and many children, Abu Arrar is exceptional. “I’m thinking about a new wife, No. 9,” he told the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot in a recent interview. “There are many women who wish to marry me and there is no lack of women.” Abu Arrar, whose oldest child is 37, was photographed by the newspaper in a long Bedouin robe and head cover, surrounded by a dozen or so of his kids.

Four veiled women, including two who said they were his wives, sat on the porch peeling vegetables. While Islam allows Muslim men to have four co-wives, it is a custom in Bedouin society to flout the already-generous ruling – and an Israeli ban on polygamy – by marrying women one at a time, divorcing them and marrying others. Culturally, it’s understood that the renounced wives are still married to Abu Arrar, the experts said. It’s unclear how Abu Arrar supports his massive family. Camels, goats and a cow were grazing on his property. Yediot said he also receives about $1,700 in government handouts each month. According to the Israeli Interior Ministry, Abu Arrar has 53 children registered as Israeli citizens. He has 14 other children born to Palestinian wives in the West Bank and who are not eligible for Israeli citizenship, his other wives said. Either way, his family size pales in comparison to the size of the average Israeli family: 2.3. Abu Arrar claims to remember all his children’s names, and says they are split almost evenly between boys and girls. Activists said Abu Arrar’s story showed the urgency of raising literacy and education among Bedouin women. Many are pressured into marriage or feel they have no other options beside raising children, said Khadra al-Sani, director of Sidra, a Bedouin women’s rights group.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
