Polygamy - a celebration!

Apparently in South Africa polygamy is legal and thus a South African man has married four women in one ceremony to which hundreds of people were invited. He thought a joint celebration would save money because the festivities had been combined. Well, you can understand that -so many friends and relations -'We have to invite Uncle G or Cousin H '; 'If you're inviting HIM I'm definitely asking HER'. Can you imagine all those mothers-in-law struggling to make their wishes felt - and can you imagine the problems they must have encountered as they attempted to coordinate their wedding outfits? Oh my! I hope he's ready for the undoubted spats that might result from his 'thoughtfulness'?

  1. Sounds to me that he's made his first big mistake making those poor girls and their Mums share the "bigday". I wouldn't like to be in his shoes.

  3. You're both so right! 'Marry in haste, repent at leisure' or perhaps that should be 'Marry in quadruple, pay the consequences.'
