An 87-year-old Nigerian man Bello Maasba has had 107 wives, says the Los Angeles Times. He’s presently married to 86 between the ages of 19 and 64 (nine have died and he divorced 12 for disobedience.) They live in an 89-room home in Bida. Three years ago, Islamic authorities arrested Maasba and ordered him to divorce all but four of his wives. He refused and was imprisoned for 22 days; lawyers, meanwhile, began interviewing the wives. After the first 57 said they had agreed to their marriages, he was freed. He also has 185 children and an extended family of 5,000.
That’s 1.2 wives and 2.1 children for every year of his life. Not even his adult life.
