Man with 97 wives
« on: January 31, 2017, 07:15:30 AM »
Hello Joseph, What is your view on Mohammad Bello Abubakar, who married around 100 wives, at a time near 80 wives. He died yesterday.

According to Wikipedia, "Although the Quran states that a man may marry four wives, Bello claimed that when the Quran set a law, it must also set a punishment for offenders, and no punishment was given for this particular offense."
