When he was young he had spoken about polygamy with his friends, male and female. Their generation was different, people would say, women were educated, and what educated woman would be a second wife, or agree to having her husband marry another one. And there would be other sides too, people speaking about religion, about their natural rights as men.
- People don't understand, someone - usually a woman - would say, - there is a condition in it. God says it's OK - as long as you love them both equally. But who can love two women equally? That is where the problem lies nak.
This wasn't the problem. He knew now, with hindsight. It wasn't about loving them equally - that was like comparing apples to oranges.
