A Birmingham dating entrepreneur has launched what he claims is the UK’s first ‘marriage only’ matchmaking site.
Azad Chaiwala says GoMarry.com is aimed exclusively at people looking to wed as soon as possible.
Rather than going on a date, potential couples must attend a ‘marriage meeting’ and answer 101 questions to see if they are a good fit.
Mr Chaiwala, a Muslim, says the site already has almost 5,000 members of all ages, faiths and backgrounds – with between 60 to 70 per cent being female.
Khalid Mahmood, who branded the venture ‘stupid’ and warned women entering a polygamous relationship are waving away financial rights usually attached to a marriage.
He said: “It puts a person in huge peril because they are not allowed to claim, as a partner, on his estate. It is not acceptable and puts individuals very much at risk, it puts them at a huge disadvantage.”
“They think they are doing the right thing, but it does put them at risk in terms of the financial situation.”
Secondwife.com now has more than 100,000 members with the vast majority being Muslim men.
