TEHRAN – All three wives of a 67-year-old Iranian man took overdoses in an unsuccessful triple suicide attempt after the youngest wife bought an expensive pair of boots, a news agency reported on Sunday.

“My two other wives were very jealous after my 27-year-old wife bought a pair of boots for $450,” the husband was quoted as saying by the ISNA student news agency.

“After they had an argument about the price, they all attempted suicide together,” he added.

All three women, now in stable condition in the hospital, have separate apartments and cars.

Men in Iran, where Islamic law has been in force since 1979, can marry up to four wives, although polygamy is fairly rare.
