A journalist, identified as Maynard Manyowa, has taken to Twitter to reveal that his biggest mistake in life is marrying two wives.
The man, who described himself as a ‘former polygamist’, made this revelation while reacting to a Twitter user who declared that polygamy is the future of marriage.
He explained that he is not in support of polygamy because of his personal experience with his two wives, and urged men to desist from polygamy otherwise they won’t have a peaceful life.
According to Maynard, he loves his first wife and only married his second wife to save her from the shame of being single. However, over time, he almost lost his first wife that he loved deeply because he wanted to keep his second wife.
“As a former polygamist – I say this is bad advice. You will never know peace.
I was a lousy polygamist because I only ever loved one woman. And the other was not really my Mrs but someone I didn’t want to suffer ignominy of not being married.
Biggest mistake ever. Don’t do it
Let me just add. When polygamy is great, it’s amazing.
In fact polygamy is all good until it is all bad!
I enjoyed 10 years of it. Sweet!
Only issue is, in trying to keep the woman I didn’t want – I then nearly lost the one I wanted.
So perhaps polygamy isn’t bad – I am.”
