I'm sure each one of us is targeting something in the near future or is there anyone who just go with the flow with nothing specific planned for the future.. do you have plans to gain something materialistic or social or something just to be happy.. what is it? Is it personal or professional? Just hop in to post the same if you think it can be shared with the forum mates

I assume you realise that nearly all religions that allow you to have multiple wives require that you treat all of them equally, fairly, and with respect. You can not have a "favorite" just because she is younger and sexier than your older wives.

I have one wife. Keeping her happy is plenty for me. There is no way I'd want three or four wives, even if my religion and my wife allowed.

That is the whole point in having a harem.
Even I have one wife, and I wish she would treat me better!

Maneesh , for those who are getting beaten by wife, there is an Indian website http://www.domesticviolence.in/ to help them. You can contact them.

It doesn’t matter, whether you put a pinch of salt in your eye or couple of pinches of salt in your eye, the end result will be the same.

The thing I am always thinking but will never say to the boss or HR guy asking about goals and challenges again:

I have my eye on a girl half my age, now that's a real challenge.

So that he can earn millions once again and you can kidnap him once again.

If you are 20 and she is 10, you are a pervert. If you are 70 and she is 35, go for it.

New girl. Fresh girl. I think she's around 25, but I am not sure. She is asking really silly questions like "is this also your first job?". I might look just a bit young for my age. How am I gonna break her illusion I am about her age, and still keep a perspective on the goal, getting to know her. Now how would you optimize that? Now there is a dilema. Not to mention risk analyses!!

Sorry, yes I am a pervert. Sorry.
