A 32-year-old man identified singularly as Luwizo in Kalehe, South Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo has married three triplet sisters.
According to the report filed by the local website My Wedding, the 32-year-old man tied the knot with the three sisters late last month in a colorful ceremony.
At the wedding, Luwizo revealed that he fell in love with one of the sisters, Natalie, after meeting her on Facebook and chatting with her for a while.
The two then decide to organize a physical meeting at Natalie’s home where he met her sisters, Nadege and Natasha. The duo soon also fell in love with him, too.
Without his knowledge, Luwizo would be welcomed by one of the sisters whenever he visited Natalie’s home.
At the final meeting at Natalie’s to formalize their union, Luwizo said he was shocked to meet three identical women.
“I almost fainted. I asked them amongst all of you, who is Natalie? They told me I had met all of them on different days I visited,” he said.
“I became confused as I had planned to marry Natalie, but what confused me was that I couldn’t marry one of the girls and leave the two behind,” he added.
The sisters said they were at peace with marrying him because they have been close-knit since childhood.
“At first, when we told him he had to marry all of us he was shocked. But because he had already fallen in love with all of us, nothing couldn’t stop our plans since we were also in love with him,” Natalie said.
Natalie also added that: “Even though people consider it impossible for three women to share one husband, to us, sharing everything has been our life since childhood,”
It is said that Luwizo’s parents, however, disapproved of his decision and opted out of the wedding celebrations.
Luwizo commented about his parent’s refusal to be part of his big day saying: “You have to lose something in order to gain another and one has their preferences and their own way of doing things,” he said.
He further said that: “I’m happy to marry the triplets no matter what others think Love has no limits,”
The sisters said they thought their future husbands would make them separate, terming the turn of events as a dream come true.
“Our dream came true. We thought we would be separated by marriage, but God heard our prayers, “Natalie commented.
