What will your everyday look like in 2030?

I hope to have several wives. At least if I can support them financially. Senegalese interpretation of the Qur'an allows up to four wives, as long as you can fend for them. And that's the best way for everyone. You see, us Senegalese men love women too much. And if I'd be married and then meet another girl who really pleases me, it's far better to openly marry her according to law than to have a hidden affair. The problem is jealousy, though. Women in Senegal, they are sooooo jealous. So, yeah, ideally. If I marry I girl i really love, who satisfies all my needs, then I won't have to marry another one.

But if you don't satisfy your woman, can she pick another three husbands?

No - because that would lead to a lot of trouble. Men and women are fundamentally different here. That could lead to a great fight; a fight to the death. And the Qur'an permits one way, not the other. The marriage still requires both man and woman to make an effort, like satisfying each other sexually. Like I said, the ideal for me is absolutely to have one wife only. I just don't know if I can do it.
