Default How many wives & children does a man need?

http://www.thenational.ae/apps/pbcs....GLOBALBRIEFING

Fertility rates are declining at a drastic rate. Emiratis have never had so few children – 2.3 per family at the last count.

Two men, however, are doing their best to reverse the trend. And while father-of-52 Salem Juma’a, in his late 70s, will probably stop there, 60-year-old Daad Abdulrahman has 86 and says he is aiming for 100.

“It’s from God,” says Mr Juma’a. “God gave me this. I can’t object to God’s gift. God gave me because I deserved it. If I did not deserve, God would not give.”


Do read on. Quite incredible.

The answer to how many women a man needs is so, so simple:

One's too many and a hundred's not enough.
