Northern Indian woman Rajo Verma is married to brothers Sant Ram Verma, Bajju Verma, Gopal Verma, Guddu Verma and Dinesh Verma. She sleeps with a different one each night and has no idea which one of them is the father of her 18-month-old son.
“Initially it felt a bit awkward,” she told the Sun newspaper. “But I don’t favor one over the other.”
The seven-member family shares one room in Dehradun.
Verma, 21, and first husband, Guddu, were united in an arranged Hindu marriage four years ago. She then was married to the other four brothers in support of an ancient tradition called polyandry. Baiju is the oldest at 32, while Dinesh is the youngest at 19, according to The Daily News.

“We all have sex with her but I’m not jealous," first husband Guddu said. "We’re one big happy family.”
Apparently this runs in Rajo’s family.
“My mother was also married to three brothers so when I got wed I knew I had to accept all of them as my husbands," she said. “I sleep with them in turn. We don’t have beds, just lots of blankets on the floor.
She added: “I get a lot more attention and love than most wives.”
