Brain Game: As I was going to St. Ives
I was 27 when I got married, and it's probably a good thing that I waited.Â I often wonder howÂ anyone younger than that manages to pull it off successfully, butÂ many do. If you're lucky like me and love your spouse, give him or her a quick call and say so. Don't put it off until Valentine's Day; doÂ it right now. I'll wait.Â Then come back and try today's Brain Game:
On a trip to Indiana, I met a man
namedÂ Ezra who was 24 years old.
He had no children of his own, but he
had marriedÂ seven different women.
He did not divorce any of the women;
their marriages had not been annulled,
and he had not otherwise become
legally separated from any of them.
Nor did any of them die, yet the situation
was perfectly proper and legal.
How is this possible?
Here is theÂ SOLUTION.
Ezra was a minister. He married the seven women... in his church... to other men.
