Why? We do not know, but the truth about it is that, as long as he can take care of all of them without any complaint, it's nobody's business. From our little understanding of the Quran- the believer can marry as many as 4 wives, if he would be able to love them all equally. Though we don't know how come the former Governor's wives have reached 13? We know for sure he is eminently qualified to take care of them all. The 78 years old former Governor's new wife is said to be 27 years old, that’s just mere 51 years age difference. Is she not so LUCKY?
With young men not readily around anymore, why not go for the best. The wedding was said to have happened on Friday, April 6, 2012.
Congratulations to the former governor.
