Wife number 25 brings contentment

BBC Article
After 24 failed marriages, a 49-year-old porter in eastern Nepal says that he has finally found happiness in his latest union.

The simple reason is that the landless labourer's latest marriage seems to be working out, unlike the previous ones.

Ramchandra Katuwal, of Khandbari municipality in Sankhuwasava, and his wife recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary.

He say that his marriage to Sharada has been a "journey of happiness".

Poor guy. I hope that his ex-wives don't automatically get 50%... that would mean that he only has (1/2)^24 of his original wealth left.
So despite the repeated failures, why did he decide to marry again?

"I wanted to have a wife, because a house is not house without a wife," he said.
