This man has married 53 times in 43 years “to find peace in life”
- The shortest marriage out of the 53 lasted only for a single night.
- He decided to marry for a third and fourth time due to problems between his two wives.
A Saudi man says he has married 53 women over the course of 43 years in search of “peace and stability”.
Abu Abdullah, 63, has been branded "polygamist of the century." He says the reason behind his multiple marriages was his “search for a woman who could make him happy.”
“I have married 53 women over the years. I was 20 at the time of my first marriage and the woman was six years older than me. During the first marriage I had no plans to marry more than one woman. I felt comfortable with her and we had a baby,” Abu told a Saudi TV channel recently.
However, after a few years, problems arose in that relationship, due to which Abdullah decided to marry again at the age of 23.
But, despite the second marriage, he claims to did not find happiness. Abdullah decided to marry for the third and fourth times after trouble brewed between the first two wives. However, he later divorced his first three wives because he wanted to be married to a woman who could make him “happy.”
Though most of his marriages were to Saudi women, Abu has also married foreigners during his overseas business trips.
“I used to stay for three to four months. So I married to protect myself from vice,” Abdullah said. His shortest spell of marriage was a one-night event.
“Every man in the world wishes to have one woman and remain with her forever. Stability is not to be found with a young woman, but with an old one,” he added.
Surprisingly, Abu has now happily settled down with one woman. He says he does not plan to remarry.
