I love when people who have probably never been there act like they know more about a country I lived in for six years than I do.

Oh I have a more scandalous one than that. Age gap was smaller (I was 17, he was 31) but the scandalous bit was that I knew him because he was friends with my Da.

I wouldn’t let myself away with justifying it like that these days though.
Random question, but considering you lived in a culture where this was normal and accepted.

What do you think of men with multiple wives? Would you be the 'xth' wife?

Nope, I never considered marrying him nor he me. It was a pretty tawdry affair.

On the multiple wives thing, it’s way different than I pictured it. I always thought it was a fella with multiple wives in the one house deciding which bedroom he’d sleep in tonight. It’s rarely like that.

It’s more like a guy from Cork who works in Dublin having a wife and family in each city; the two wives often have never met or in some cases don’t even know about each other. You have to be pretty wealthy to run two homes like that, so it’s more common in oil-rich countries in the Gulf.

Technically you’re only meant to get a second wife under certain specific conditions (like if your first wife turns out to have fertility problems) but what often happens is they marry who their parents tell them to as their first wife and then for love with wife no. 2. I never met anyone with 3 or 4, I think that’s basically reserved for royalty.

That's actually quite interesting, thank you for the insight.

I always only saw it through a 'huh, huh, bang multiple women, be great, huh huh' viewpoint.

However, I can barely handle one women, let along try for more. Hahah

Married the wrong woman.

Had an affair with a much older woman. She was 62!

We can’t tell us how scandalous this is unless you tell us how old you are
