Mixed reactions have been expressed after a man named Byamungu Kanjira Prosper married three women in the church at the same time.
The man and his bride were married at the Primitive Church in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which promotes polygamy.
The church unequivocally states that it believes men should be free to have as many spouses as they want.
Prosper is seen at the altar with the three bridesmaids dressed to the nines in a video posted by Afrimax English from the wedding ceremony.
Speaking about his decision to marry not one, not two, but three women, the groom stated that it is not necessary for a man to limit himself to only one marriage.
“I can take more,” Prosper said, noting that there are far more women than men on the planet.
He predicted that in the future, seven women would consent to marry one man.
Then he advised single women to go to their church in order to find husbands. Prosper’s wives expressed their joy and pride in being his wives.
