A man married four women all from the same school at one ceremony, according to press reports.

The Saudi Arabian man, has married a student, teacher, principal, and an educational supervisor who oversees the school.

The 50-year-old man of the Jazan region, lives on the same street as the school.

The women’s ages were not reported.

A colleague of the teacher and principal said that the school staff were surprised to learn about the marriages, but said the man treats his fellow wives the same as he does the other women at the school.

"The issue of teachers and students being married to the same man is funny and is a topic of gossip at breaks during the school day," he said. Police said that no charges will be filed in this case.

According to the law, Saudi men are allowed to marry up to four women. There is no law in Saudi Arabia that prevents teachers from marrying students at their school, according to press reports.
