10 Husbands in One State

A New York woman was caught marrying ten different husbands in eleven years without divorcing any of them. Liana Barrientos began her serial wedding spree in 1999, when she married for the first time. After that, the marriages came thick and fast, all registered in different counties.

Barrientos married Mohamed Gerbil in November 1999, Ahmed Allam in November 2001, Habibur Rahman also in November 2001, Davit Koridze in February 2002, Duran Goktepe in March 2002, Aliaksandr Paharelau also in March 2002, Vakhtang Dzneladze in May 2002, Rashid Rajput in July 2002, Kakhaber Khorbaladze in August 2002, and Salle Keita in March 2010, prosecutors alleged.

Although the case was exposed in 2010, it has still not been adjudicated. Barrientos is due in court today in the Bronx for an arraignment on charges of false instrument for filing. -via Uproxx

I assume she was doing this for profit. The men needed a wife to satisfy either a legal requirement (get married to stay in the country) or a cultural expectation (as "proof" of one's heterosexuality for their relatives).

Maybe she should have gone farther afield.
