Drawing inspiration straight from the Christian Bible, veteran Ghanaian broadcaster Adakabre says every man must marry two wives.
According to him, in those days that was the norm and it still remains a great idea to this day.
Adakabre was speaking on Starr Chat with EIB CEO Bola Ray Wednesday when he revealed he currently has two wives, one in Ghana and another in the U.K.
“I have a wife who lives in the UK and I have a wife who lives in Ghana. Marrying two wives is a good idea. In 1987 I married in the UK and just about 6 years ago, I married another one.” he said.
Assigning his reasons for his actions, he revealed: “I was motivated by the need to also play a very key role in several children’s life. I live in Ghana and you don’t have anybody around you, and so if you have a great woman who will make your stay in Ghana very comfortable it’s good,”
He added: “You go and check in the Bible in a given period how many women will be looking for a single man to marry them; and you sit there and let just your wife take advantage of you. It is only when you have a difficulty that you will realize that it is probably being folly that you rely on just her. Go check all the older persons who made it in life and they will tell you their story”.
