Why marry one sister when you can marry all three ? Image Credit: YouTube / Afrimax English
A 32-year-old man has ended up marrying three identical triplets after all three of them fell in love with him.
The man, who is known only as Luwizo, originally met one of the sisters - Natalie - on social media and the two of them quickly fell in love.

Not all was quite as it seemed, however, as it turned out that he had also been unknowingly meeting her two identical sisters - Natasha and Nadege - and was unable to tell any of them apart.

By the time he realized the deception, all three of them had fallen in love with him.

When he received the offer to marry all three, therefore, he couldn't refuse.
"At first, when we told him he had to marry all of us he was shocked," said Natalie.

"But because he had already fallen in love with all of us, nothing could stop our plans since we were also in love with him. Even though people consider it impossible for three women to share one husband, but to us, sharing everything has been our life since childhood."

The marriage ended up going ahead, however not everyone was thrilled with the arrangement.

Luwizo's own parents wanted nothing to do with it and didn't even turn up for the wedding.

His sister however was supportive of his decision.

I always thought three times a lady was supposed to all be the same lady! I wonder how the dowry was set, Congo still has that and the article didn't say.

The groom pays the dowry. There's been some talk lately about the tradition and if it should change or not. Traditionally it's money and gifts for the parents of the bride. So I wonder if he paid 3 full dowries, or a lump sum money and partial dowry of just one pair of shoes instead of one for each bride and a different amount of goats, or other amounts of gifts changed, or if he didn't give any dowry at all.

I assumed they were conjoined triplets.    He's going to be a very tired man for a while.  You know how newlyweds are.

Dowry in most places was money or properties brought into the marriage by the woman often gifted by the father of the bride. This was prevalent in a marriage where the man usually brought most of the wealth into the marriage. The dowry was to allow the bride to bring something into the marriage. In times past it may also have been simply a way to get a husband for women in societies where because of violence and wars the women greatly out numbered the men. In more primitive cultures the survival rate among males is much lower than among the women. Women sought men more to insure legitimacy of ... [More]
