View Full Version : Man marries for 53rd time!
A Malaysian man has married for the 53rd time - and has gone back to his original choice, wife number one.
"I am not a playboy. I just love seeing beautiful women," Kamarudin Mohammed, 72, told the New Straits Times.
Kamarudin, who was married to one woman for just two days, said all his marriages ended in divorce, except his last, which ended when his wife died.
As a Muslim he could marry more than one woman at a time, but said he did not believe in that, or in flings.
His new wife, 74-year-old Khadijah Udin, said she agreed to remarry him after he agreed to give up his flighty ways.
"Kamarudin... promised to look after me until the end of our lives and said he did not want to continue his habit of remarrying repeatedly," she said.
The groom said he was happy with his choice.

In case anyone missed it, Britney Spears was his 49th wife.

My grandparents have only been married for 49 years, so it is kind of an interesting thing to think about.
Why does he even bother getting married? Just become a pimp or somethin. :rolleyes: Now aren't "flings" and being "flighty" the same thing? :confused: :rolleyes:
I think a more relevant question is why 52 women would do that.

Heck, I don't think I'd marry a man who'd been married more than 3 times... (I'd rather he'd never been married at all before me ;) )
Ok, say some guy proposes to you, and he's been divorced let's say... 16 times... wouldn't ya think he'd be pretty prone to do it again? I mean, come on! :rolleyes:
I would have to seriously consider marrying a man who had already been married once.

I suppose he must be sooo charming and girls find him unbelievably attractive. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif
I expect where he comes from it isn't as strange and outlandish as we make it out. I took a trip to Kuala Lumpur last year, took a train down to Singapore (cool) and took a ferry to Malaysian Borneo. There, you do see men walking around who have married at least five times.
All I can say is that I wish him good luck, and advise him to quit while he's ahead.
*Maybe he just did it for the wedding presents*
I also think it's quite funny how he went back to the original! I wonder why they split up in the first place.

I admit the idea of more than one wife appeals to me, but I could see how it wouldn't be so great in this day and age.
