Don't Hurt Me, Dear

Thought I should get that out of the way first.

So, where exactly do I sign up to become King of Swaziland?

[King] Mswati is Africa's last absolute monarch. He is currently married to nine wives, with a wedding pending for wife number 10, and has chosen an additional fiancee after reviewing videos of topless maidens performing a traditional Reed Dance ceremony.
Now, I personally think polygamy is wrong, and it's generally bad for society as a whole, and I WOULD NEVER EVER EVER ENGAGE IN IT BECAUSE I FEAR LOVE MY INCREDIBLE WIFE TOO MUCH, but:

Dude, that's a heckuva way to live.
