A man is bound to get into a muddle if he has been enmeshed in the matrimonial net seven times accumulating children and in-laws along with his wives. The harder he tries, the more the ungrateful matrimonial world sets him back. Convinced as he is that the first wife is always the worst, and it can only get better, he determinedly fights on with blind optimism. And the old temptress comes in new forms. Even when he has had enough, marriage is thrust upon him, for what is he to do when a propertied widow courts him? Only when imprisoned for bigamy can he escape the temptations of marriage and the hard labour, daily abuse, solitary confinement and heavy irons wives bring.
