I have such a big problem.... I have 3 Colombian girlfriends, and they all want to marry me!

I don't speak any Spanish and they speak very little English, but they all say they love me and they all say they are willing to move to the US.

It's so hard for me to choose because I love all of them, but I just can't decide which one I love the most.

Also, we don't speak the same language yet, but I'm confident I can make it work with any of them because every time they say something, it's like I can finish their sentences, like we're soulmates. So I know we'll make it work even with the language barrier, because I know we're all in love.

So any advice out there for someone like me who needs to decide which girlfriend to marry?

First; learn Spanish.
Second; bear in mind that it may be the USA they love and you are merely a means to get there.
Third; become a muslim and marry all three.
But remember Lurena Bobbit, who was also a Latina.

You have three girlfriends and you are thinking of getting married?

Dude, wait until you are 40, then get married if you want.

To be fair, there are some hindus who get into illegal bigamy. There are celebrities - actors, politicians. And also ordinary citizens. There is this guy in the house opposite mine who visits his first wife here once a month or so. He lives with his second wife for most of the time.

The first wife, in such cases, is often too helpless to protest or work out legal remedies. The second wife is castigated as the "husband stealer". The guy, however, enjoys the best of both the worlds!

While on polygamy, this one is interesting:

Forget polygamy. I'm talking about no-gamy at all. Be George Cluny. You marry one of these girls, and I give you better than even odds that you are divorced before 2020.

On the other hand--marry in haste, repent at leisure. Or regret at leisure.

(I'll say I told you so, if that makes any difference. Wink )

Oh, and I agree with PugachevV, when he says to learn Spanish.

How are you going to marry a young lady who speaks a language you don't know? Spanish is a beautiful language, and not that hard to learn if you give it a try.

Free advice, but valuable nonetheless.

One last thought:

You feel you are soulmates with all three of these ladies? You're not soulmates with all three of these ladies, though I'm sure all three are charming and delightful.

Wait a few years.

Third; become a muslim and marry all three.

Just to clarify, in islam u can have 4 waives legally but u cant have 100 girlfriends,as it goes in west, and then choose one of them, i think this is spontainuos and unfair especially for women, and this why the the sexual deaseas rate in muslim countries is the lowest in the world. Islam is a religion for life. don't be misguided by what u get from unfair media, read about Islam from its sources.
Just google Shareislam or Islammessege(English) and discover the TRUTH.

Best regards
