Englishman, you said:
Indeed, why not have more than 4 wives? The answer is, of course, that it would be totally impossible to keep up with them, as women, unlike us chaps, are able to think of more than one thing at once.
My hubby brags that he can read and watch TV at the same time and still know what's going on in whatever prog he is watching. Funny though, I believe he just says that, because when I ask him what somebody just said on TV, he says "I wasn't listening," because his head is buried in a book! LOL
