Woman to woman marriage as cultural punishment

Woman to woman marriage as cultural punishment! I viewed this video two years ago, but I had not stopped a bit to think about it. In the Kuria tribe in northern Tanzania (Tarime District), if a woman fails to deliver a baby boy, she gets ‘forcibly’ married to another woman, generally an elderly woman. I wish I were there to ask men if it would not be fairer to ‘punish’ men by forcing them to get married to other men, when, for instance, they fail to give birth at all.
