Unsatisfied 110 year old Saudi takes second wife

Proving once again there's no fool like an old fool.

A 110-year old Saudi man has taken a second wife because his first 85-year-old wife no longer satisfies his needs, the daily Arab News said on Friday. The report did not explain why the man considered his current wife to be unfulfilling, but it did point out that his new spouse is only 30 years old.

Under Islamic law, men are allowed to have as many as four wives, as long as they can support them and provide for them equally.

A 70-year-old son of the unnamed man, from the southern city of Baha, said his father was in good health and that his family was thrilled at the news of the latest nuptials.
