Famous ultra-orthodox music and film star in Israel, Shuli Rand, marries his second wife, tv personality Tzufit Grant. And in case you misunderstand, we don’t mean that Rand is once divorced. This is actually his second concurrent wife. The pseudo-polygamous situation was given the all-clear by Israel’s Rabbinate because Rand’s first wife refused to agree to a divorce. So why is this controversial, though? Women’s rights groups among the first to point out that for ‘chained wives’, or women in Rand’s exact position – don’t have a magical permit that allows for remarriage when it’s the husband who can’t let go.
