Fraternal polyandry (from the Latin frater - brother) is a form of polyandrous marriage in which two or more brothers share one wife or more. It is also termed adelphogamy, but this term also has other meanings.

Fraternal polyandry is found especially in certain areas of Tibet and Nepal, where polyandry is accepted as a social practice.
