After watching this video, you need to answer this basic question: who is right?
Is it OK for someone to marry to more than one person at one time?
Please share your opinion
This gentleman obviously is defending himself. He does not call the second wedding as marriage but "Placage Onet"

It's a wedding day in Haiti. Be it the Haiti on Hispaniola or the one in the hearts across the Diaspora, a Haitian wedding tradition permeates through geographical and economic boundaries. The customs set out to usher a new couple into their married life are simple, poignant traditions that are quickly being adopted by people outside the Haitian sphere, while being simultaneously forgotten by those within it.
No one is formally invited to a Haitian wedding. This is perhaps one of the first differences between other wedding traditions. It is also one of the reasons why the customs are currently mostly practiced within the rural areas, where word of mouth gives an individual access to a wedding celebration.
Disillusionment of marriage on the cheap and in the quickest possible time is a profitable feature of the judicial system in Haiti. Caribbean divorces have been a favorable option for many United States couples who wish to be divorced as the ease and quickness of the procedure means they can move on with their lives that much quicker.
The procedure for obtaining a bilateral divorce in the country of Haiti includes a personal appearance in court with the submission of certain documents including, a letter of information, an original or copy of the marriage certificate or an affidavit that has been notarized, identification, a copy of an agreement of separation (this is not mandatory) and the defendant's waiver, submission to jurisdiction and power of attorney. For a unilateral divorce, all documents but the defendant's waiver is necessary. The defendant will be notified by the judge of the action for divorce and will have 12 days to respond, 20 if they live outside of the western hemisphere.

Bullying happens in every social context to individuals, groups, classes, races, genders, and sexual orientations. Researchers claim certain characteristics are present in people who bully. They are often authoritarian, dominating, controlling, socially underdeveloped, and prejudiced towards others. They are also emotionally volatile, coercive, habitually aggressive, paranoid, insecure, and prone to acting in robotic ways.
Bullying or hazing--as it is called on college campuses--has a shameful tradition that secretly legitimizes itself.
Research in psychology implies bullying begins in childhood. If bullying behavior is not dealt with then, the risk increases it may turn into a chronic disorder. Bullying works through mind-games, name-calling, or character assassination. It finds fertile ground in gangs and groups, often occurring in school environments.
Alimony is a term you will commonly hear during divorce proceedings. In simple terms, it is a financial arrangement between divorcing couples, one of whom will receive financial support from the other upon separation. Generally, the non-working partner will receive regular payments from his/her employed spouse depending on the latter's income.
In many cases, one of the married couples is employed while the other takes care of the household and provides emotional and physical support to the working one. In this case, think of alimony as recognition for the contributions and sacrifices given all throughout the relationship.
