StepFeed, Saudi cleric says polygamous men can keep their second marriage a secret

"Saudi cleric Abdullah Al-Mutlaq recently sparked controversy after saying polygamous men aren't obligated to tell their first wife of a second marriage. 
"The Islamic scholar, who is an advisor to the kingdom's royal court, made the statement during an episode of state television program Fatawi (Religious Edicts). It came in response to a question on whether hiding a second marriage from a spouse is permissible."
