Man with 58 Wives:
In 50 years he says he has married 58 women and has forgotten the names of most of them. He knows he has 10 sons, but asks about daughters and he counts on his fingers: 22, no, 28, no that’s too many. He settles on 25. Saleh Al-Sayeri 64 years old Shepard turned business man says his marital adventures have cost him more then $ 1.6 million in wedding expenses and settlements for divorced wives. But the man who remembers being forced into his first marriage at the age of 14 years says he would do it a million times. “Marriage does not bore me”, he said relaxing in his 22-horse stable in Asfan “I am the happiest man in the world”. Money is not an issue for Al-Sayeri, who says he has made a fortune trading in cars and property. Al-Sayeri says he keeps each wife in a separate villa and sometimes even in a different town to keep the peace, and assures each that she’s his favorite. He says he has married first cousins and women from about 30 tribes. His latest marriage – and at 10,000 guests his most sumptuous- was to a teenager 9 months ago.
