    RIYADH (Reuters) - A Saudi man lost a bit of his nose in a joint assault by his two wives after he jokingly threatened to marry a third woman.

    Judaie Ibn Salem had thought his threat would help resolve an argument over dividing up his house.

    "I swore that I would do it because ... they were impolite and that's when I came under an even bigger attack," Ibn Salem told Shams newspaper after having seven stitches inserted.

    "I never realized they would get so worked up. But the only way to restore my dignity is really to take a third wife.

    "I don't know what I'm going to lose next if I do that."

    Islamic law allows men to take up to four wives and polygamy is not unusual in the conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam.

    I've always wondered why someone would want multiple wives. Seems like one woman's issues would be more than enough for most men to deal with.

    Well, it seems that in societies that permit it, women aren't even permitted to have issues.

    Look, a polygamy joke. How original.

    It's more than enough for me and I'm still single myself.

    I'm just wondering what a sense of hunor is?

    Is that a Canadian version of "honor?"

    Sorry to threadjack, but I just realized I finally reached Jr. Member status. It only took like 2 and a half years to do.

    Exactly,

    I have a wife of 20 years and a 17 year old daughter.

    Who needs more trouble? ;D
