Melbourne, September 14 : It took Ramachandra Katuwal, a Nepalese porter, twenty-five marriages to finally find the right woman to be happy with.
The 49-year-old, who first got married at the age of 26, admittedly remembers only nine of his previous brides.
Whilst his first wife, and later, many others, ran off with her lover, Katuwal from then on led a life of succeeding failed marriages covering an incredible span of more than two decades.
"My second wife also ran away," The Daily Telegraph quoted him saying, "and the third one too."
"(Like other ex-wives) the 24th one also ran away. And I decided not to marry again," he added.
But he changed his mind and married 23-year-old Sharada seven years ago.
And when asked why he did so, he replied: "I wanted to have a wife, because a house is not house without a wife,"
Pleased and determined not to marry again, Katuwal has finally concluded his most-recent marriage as the much wanted "journey of happiness".
