This show never seizes to amaze us and it also shows that as a people we all really just live different lives.
On Thursday night's episode of Sofaslahlane we got introduced to an elderly man who revealed that he was interested in marrying his wife's younger sister.
The man explained that the younger sister was very instrumental in helping out with the family business thus his decision to have her hand in marriage was a decision influenced by his work.

A man falls in love with his wife's younger sister, decides to marry both sisters and built an empire with his two wives.

As expected, viewers were up in arms about this especially the female viewers who did not understand why the man had to take the younger sister as a second wife.
Here are some of the best responses.
If you want a second wife, I’ll get a second husband. Turn this into a group marriage♥️ #SofaSlahlane— pay fo de honey. pay fo de nice. (@Audriinah_) July 5, 2018
This comment is true, the younger sister can easily become a part of the family business without having to marry the man.
You married her because you wanted to share everything you all worked for? You could still share it without marrying her🙄🤔#SofaSlahlane— Reba (@RebaMokgoko) July 5, 2018
Men will never agree to the idea of taking on a second husband so why do they expect women to do that?#SofaSlahlane— Grateful. (@Wanndee_) July 5, 2018
One viewer shared that this particular story did not shock her as she's had such an ordeal happen in her family as well.
#SofaSlahlane Im not shocked about the sisters because straight in my family Ramogolo wa papa onyetse siblings, the sister came to look after her sister after she gave birth then the husband started to have sex with the younger one and she got pregnant.

Having a man sleep with your best friend hurts like hell, I know because I've been there...I can't imagine how it must be when its your sister😢#SofaSlahlane— Tshepisoyamodimo (@Tshepiiiiiii) July 5, 2018
And of course the men begged to differ about this entire situation.
So let me get this straight. Lobola is fine in this day and age but polygamy, which is also part of our culture, isn't? Women seem to be picking n choosing what parts of "culture" they want and don't want, while we're forced to helplessly watch! #SofaSlahlane— Siya mbambo (@Siyambambo1) July 6, 2018
But I think polygamy is better because you know where your partner is at unlike cheating (which is a secret) #SofaSlahlane— POI Sessions ® (@DeepMarvin) July 5, 2018
What are your thoughts about this man's decision?
