Amberay was the talk of the town after she managed to get herself a husband in the form of Jamal Marlow who is by any interpretation of the words a high networth individual. What really pushed the narrative into the realm of juicy gossip is the fact that he is a married man prior to his taking her own.

What is interesting is that as soon as he made the declaration in an attempt to give his new wife legitimacy, his other family began to experience cracks as his wife started closing ranks with Amberay’s former co-wife (yes, this is the second time this lady has been involved in a polygamous setting) and even he had to accept that indeed, he was experiencing some turmoil pursuant to his decision.

And at this point, the focus shifts entirely onto Jamal and the fact that he is clearly failing at maintaining a polygamous marriage. Which is hilarious tpp witness because his faith actually empowers him to take on two more wives.

Amberay financial times: stop taking advice from socialites

So why does he suck so bad at this whole polygamy thing given it is what a lot of men dream of. Let us dive into a few factors that are both his failure and the reason why he might eventually oversee the failure of his household:

Jamal introduces Amberay to his people

#1. He publicly humiliated his wife

You never ever humiliate the mother of your children unnecessarily and that is precisely what he did. You see, Jamal does not know the edicts of what makes marriages work and one of those edicts is the fact that even as you pursue an affair you never humiliate your wife.
And inorder to protect his new wife’s public image, he has done precisely that, completely forgetting about his family (at least from what we see on social media) and focusing solely on Amberay.

Why no one should take Amberay’s opinion on colourism seriously

His wife has doubtless had to endure DMS and even whispers as she goes about her business. Some of which are laden with pity while most are laden with vitriol. Trust me when I say that at his weakest, Jamal will have to contend with his first wife’s ire because as the adage goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

#2. He has taken on a wife who belongs to the streets

Amberay is a single mother who got involved with a multimillionaire failed politician in the person of Zaheer Jhanda who found out he couldn’t wife her and stay with his homestead intact. He too was a muslim.
It is the height of hubris to simply assume you will succeed where your predecessor failed. To top that off, this is a woman who was happy to be a video vixen for the celebrities she dated.

Not only does this socialite not have a great relationship track record, but she was also once shown to have visited a witch doctor -a claim she refused, saying she was acting in an ad that was never released. Add to this the fact that she lacks the common sense to know she shouldn’t be stirring the waters of the family she is now joining and you see why there is a huge cause for concern.

#3. The relationship started out as an affair

As my mentor put it, “If she cheated for you, she will cheat on you”

According to Jamal’s wife, when the two started dating, she had no idea what was going on. This goes contrary to Islamic teachings but more importantly, it is only a fool who thinks that a woman who was willing to be his partner as he partook in infidelity is going to be loyal to him.

Perhaps for now Jamal is safe because they have new relationship energy going for them. Perhaps it is because he is the best possible option available to Amberay or perhaps she simply wants to prove the haters wrong. But the day will come when other options will avail themselves to her. What then?
