“I meet her and I like her. We marry within three weeks. I marry all my wives within the same period. I don’t believe in dating anybody to marry them. Don’t date anybody you will marry, When you marry them, you will begin to fall in love with them marriage. Even in my culture, people don’t date before marriage ,” he said.
