We met each other when I was on holiday 6 months ago. Went on a date with him and i was smitten. When I came home we messaged, called and video call everyday and night. I went back after 4 weeks and stayed with him. I've been back a further 2 days. Over the time I met many members of his family. I spoke to his parents on phone even though they don't speak English (he translated, he speaks perfect English). I saw a video uploaded on social media from his Uncle saying it was his wedding even though I didn't see the 'bride' on video. When I sent him the video and asked him he completely denied it and said it was a circumsion party. Even his family have denied he is married.
Four weeks after his 'wedding' we went on holiday together which had already been booked a few months ago. We stayed at his cousins house and slept in the same bedroom. He told me if he was married he wouldn't be able to go on holiday as he would have to stay with his 'wife' and we wouldn't of been allowed to sleep in the same bed in his cousins house because of his culture. He still calls, messages and video calls from his bed in his parents house every night. He wants me to go back over in 3 weeks. He speaks to me open it front of his family and they all know who I am. If he does have a wife I have no idea where he hides her so we can speak.
I want to know if that would be right ... I've read he has to pay for them bride' how much would that be?
Would his family allow him to speak to me if he was married? He said women at home don't go out etc
We have been to lots of places together and we go out every day and night we are together...
He tells me he is a jealous man and I can be jealous too. He does want to know where I am and he has looked on my phone ... he has also shown me who he talks to on his phone ..
I'm just so confused wether to believe him or not ... I will appreciate any advice or help x
