A Site to Help Get Wedding Bells Ringing and Ringing and Ringing

Add this twist to the panoply of websites that promise to fill the holes in your love life: Sites that are aimed at married men who want to add wives, and single women who’d be happy sharing a spouse.

Certain that there were plenty of people in the world who’d be interested in such a service — and willing to pay for it — Azad Chaiwala, a 33-year-old British entrepreneur of Pakistani origin, created what he said were the world’s first matchmaking sites for aspiring polygamists.He started SecondWife.com, aimed specifically at Muslims, in late 2014, followed by Polygamy.com, which is open to anyone, this year.

The sites now have tens of thousands of members, Mr. Chaiwala said. Most registered users are in Britain or the United States, even though bigamy is a crime in both countries. But some members log in from India, Pakistan, or other countries in Asia or Africa where it can be legal.

While he has no way to know how many polygamous marriages his sites may have facilitated, Mr. Chaiwala said he had received more than 100 letters from users thanking him for guiding them toward multiple-marital bliss.

Mr. Chaiwala speaks of his sites with an evangelist’s fervor, hoping to spread the idea that polygamy offers a pro-family antidote to promiscuity, prostitution, divorce and broken homes. He dismisses those who criticize polygamy as anachronistic, saying it is better than adultery or one-night stands facilitated by apps like Tinder.“I am saying, ‘Marry two or three, and be loyal to them,’ ” he said.

Creating a profile on either site is free, but to browse profile photos, you need to upgrade to a paid membership of $20 a month or $45 for three months.

Three-quarters of the users on SecondWife.com are men, Mr. Chaiwala said, but most of the profiles on Polygamy.com are posted by women. He guesses that many women don’t want the obligation of a full-time husband, or consider it a plus that a man is already married.

“If they are capable of taking care of one wife, perhaps they are capable of taking care of me,” Mr. Chaiwala said, speculating on what women might be thinking.

One thing the sites are not intended to do is to help women seek out multiple husbands — a practice known as polyandry. This is not because Mr. Chaiwala opposes the idea, he said, but because it is “not a viable business proposition.”

One unexpected factor could determine if you'll divorce or not

If you're in it for the long haul, you might want to consider watching costs when planning your wedding. The less expensive, the better your chances are of staying hitched.

According to an Emory University study, stress about wedding related finances can start to lead couples down a rocky road. The wedding ceremony has a large impact on whether you will get divorced or not. The average cost of a wedding is around $30,000 dollars and research shows that a more expensive engagement ring can lead to divorce court.The argument is that young couples may already be in student loan debt and struggling to handle those payments. The long-lasting benefits of a big, fancy wedding are much less tangible than the lasting benefits of a college degree and subsequent earning potential.

The study found that couples whose weddings cost more than $20,000 divorced at a rate roughly 1.6 times higher than couples whose weddings cost between $5,000 and $10,000. The couples with the lowest likelihood of divorce were couples with weddings costing $1,000 or less. However, the study also reports that the higher amount of guests in attendance at a wedding correlates to a lower rate of divorce.

While everything in the wedding industry seems to be expensive, if you're looking for a lavish fairytale wedding you may be better off cutting your costs for a long term happily-ever-after.

"In the days leading to her death, she told us she was already visiting the other side, and that where she was going, there was only one gender.

Arquette broke into the film industry as a 19-year-old in 1989, portraying a transvestite named Georgette in "Last Exit to Brooklyn."

From there, Arquette went on to land a series of movie roles, often as a member of the supporting cast. Among the most notable flicks she appeared in are "Pulp Fiction," "Threesome" and "Bride of Chucky."

She also guest starred on episodes of "Friends," "Roseanne" and "Xena: Warrior Princess."

Her transition was documented in the 2007 documentary "Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother," which included appearances by members of her family. The documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
