An Old Husband And A Bold Wife (12) (Too Many Wives Spoils His Life)

There was a news about a 84-year-old Nigerian.
He is the most-married man with 86 wives and has 170 children.
He was detained for unlawful marriages and contempt of Islamic religious law.
He was ordered to divorce 82 wives and keep only four.
He is not beyond the reach of justice claw.
He argued back that his wives married to him by their own will,
after they were cured of their disease by miraculous Allah's will.
The big family ate up 36 kilos of rice in every meal.
The money came from begging by children, one wife revealed.
Some wives are younger than some of his sons and daughters.
There was a confusion how they called one another.

The wives and children went to the Justice Ministry premises in 3 buses.
protesting with ' What Allah has joined together, let no man put asunder.' writting on placards.
demanding his immediate release,
venting their anger and grief.
If he keeps all his wives of abundance,
he will have the death sentence.
If he chooses the most-loved four,
then the relationship with the rest 82 will go sour.
What would happen to him, you guess?
He will surely be crushed into powder out of jealous.

Life and wife,
wife and life,
are so inseparable,
whether happy or miserable.

It is a true fact we all understood,
that no wife or too many wives is no good.

I don't want to say nothing is good nor bad. But this is nice as apoem. Everybody has his or her rights to do as one's wish.
