King Mswati III of Swaziland has issued instruction to the people of the tiny southern African country that once one marries, there is no way back! In other words, people can not change their mind after marriage and pull themselves out of it, hence indicating a desire for banning divorce in the country. "In our culture once you marry, there is no turning back" the British educated King was quoted saying by the Times of Swaziland. The King has to officially table a decree that bans divorce in Swaziland, before his instruction can be enforced as a law. And so far, he has not done that. King Mswati III has been on the throne since the age of 18. Since then, he has been taking a beautiful new virgin young wife each year, a cultural practice that explains the 15 wives he has to-date. _______________________________ © 2015 - 2017 Africauptodate.
