              Certainly, Indian Muslim personal law allows it. If it contradicts the Quran, then it is a bit of a shame really

                      This is a common custom let it be Aamir nd other khans , I won't be surprised with shah rukh getting divorced and marrying someone else. I don't understand why separation is nescessary when Indian law allows you have four. I have three with option for fourth always there at my choice.

                          Very very sad indeed. Totally unexpected. Farhan should have learnt how it feels when the parents separate. Its a life long trauma. Now, they are inflicting the same psychological trauma to their innocent helpless children, for their own selfish interests. Cruel parents.

                            How these actors/actresses separate after having 2-3 children and that too after 16 yrs,20 yrs , etc,Hrithik Roshan and now this Farhan Akhtar even Amir Khan divorced after 2 children , Dont they think of children --- How did these actor's wife pregnant for 9 months with each child -- didnt her husband love her when she became a mother --- I fail to understand , DONT ANYONE ASK THEM about their family life .... Dont they talk to friends ....
