My maroccan friend called me with a question about a problem I never knew she had. Basically no one in her family does. She married an iraqi man islamically and they have a 1 year old son. Her husbands younger half brother of the age of twenty was living in iraq which is not really safe. So someone suggested to him, to let his wife(my maroccan friend) legally marry the younger brother so he could come to the safe west, while obviously islamically being married to her real husband. After some pressure from his side she ended up agreeing and now that same younger brother lives with them. He needs to stay married to her for atleast 3years to be able to get his pasport. The problem now is that she is expecting. So she told her real husband that the child should have his name since he is the real father. What happend afterwards was him flipping out and saying stuff as I dont need the child if my brother will end up being found out and send back! He told her to simply say nothing and have his parental rights revoked after he gets the pasports and legally divorces her. In both cases hower she will look like a ho. The question that arises now is whether she should force her real husband to acknowledge his child making her look like a ho. Or shut up about it and later on have her fake husbands parental rights revoked and have the dna of the kids tested so that the 'real' father can acknowledge his kids. She is very angry because in both cases her reputation will be tarnished. while her husband is happily strolling around with his brother and no longer even gives any attention to her or their son?
