Photos of the 34 year old man, Ekpe Akpove  have emerged. The marriage ceremony which was set for August 14 2021 has finally taken place. The internet was abuzz last week as the wedding invitation circulated the media space.
The fisherman Ekpe who hails from Isoko South Local government area of Delta state married Okoro Oghenekomeno his first wife who he said he met in 2008 and Maro Ukpuru his second wife.  They were held at the respective homes of both brides but the reception was held at the groom’s compound.
According to Ekpe, he loves his both wives equally and treats them sme. What matters to him is that they’ll have peaceful coexistence  
 
He said;
“I love them both equally and that is why I have decided to get married to them. They both have three children each for me. So, I had to do the right thing and pay their bride price and be married to them legally. My firstborn is 11 years old; fortunately for me, my wives usually give birth within the same period,” he said. Read excerpt of the interview below:
He also opened up that he had dated both ladies at the same time
 
He said;
 
At the very beginning. When I started dating the other, I hid it from my first woman because no lady would find out that her partner was having an affair and not feel hurt about it. Eventually, she found out and I didn’t deny it.
“I told her the truth, and by then I had already rented an apartment for the second (wife) because I was already living together with my first wife, and I wanted to make sure I avoided clashes between them.”
“When my first woman found out about my affair, there was nothing she could do, because she was already pregnant for me. All I had to do was apologise to her, and thank God she forgave me. That was how I was able to make them meet and get to know each other.”
On how he handles his wives when they have misunderstandings, he said;
“Women will always be women. Thankfully, they don’t get into physical fights, and they usually have arguments which I believe is normal. As the man of the house, I always sort out their differences, and also I have friends who can talk to them and they listen.”
On how he plans to take care of his wives, he said:
 
“Before now, I had been taking care of them; I will continue the same way I have always been doing. They have been with me for a long time and none of them has ever complained; that means I am doing my best, if not, they would have left me.”
Asked why he married 2 wives even though Christianity does not encourage polygamy, he said;
I will ask you a question: How many wives did Jacob have? He had two wives. Even Solomon, the wisest king in the Bible, had many wives. I have never seen anywhere in the Bible where it is written that it is a sin to have more than one wife. As long as you can take care of the children and the wives, that is what God wants. I am happy with my family.
