“…and by the power vested in me by the King, I now pronounce you Husband and Wives. You may kiss the 38 brides. I’ll just sit over here and talk to my friend. Let me know when you’re done.”
Reverend Gus walked to the back of the church and sat beside Reverend Harry.
“How’d it go?” asked Harry.
“Oh, you know. Not bad. You been sleeping?”
“Yeah. I’ve got a 63-party wedding after this one. Figured it’d be a good idea to catch a nap. ‘S gonna take a while.”
“Uh-huh.” Gus scratched behind his ear. “Hey, did you hear the King’s talking about putting an end to this multiple marriage thing?”
“Nooo. For serious?”
“Yep. I heard he’s going to start cutting off heads of any woman who covets her neighbour’s husband.”
“Ooooh, that’s gonna get messy. Better brush up on the funeral services.”
“Yep, good idea.”

You’re welcome, Dan. 🙂 Thanks for the comment!
lol. interesting scenario. i wonder if the world would ever accept a marriage of a person with more than 1 partner at once.
Some do. I think this many might get a bit confusing though. 😛 hehe
