ADULTERY

~Photo Discovery Of Unfaithfulness

 From London comes this report: Two women were talking at a fashionable London restaurant about their husbands. They showed each other photographs—and realized they were married to the same man.

 Today the man—hotel night porter John Jones, 47—is in prison for five years. He was married before he met either of the two women.

~ He Married 2 Women In 48 Hours

 A Greek student in Athens, Greece, was sentenced to eight months imprisonment on charges of marrying two women within 48 hours. He appealed the sentence and was set free pending a new trial. The court heard that Petros Novaras, 29, married Vassiliki Chioti on Jan 24, 1971, in the central Greek town of Lamia, and took off in his car for a honeymoon. After an engine trouble, he sent his wife down to Athens on a bus.

 In the meantime, he went to a suburb in Athens and married a 29-year-old lass, the court heard. He then continued his honeymoon with his second wife. At the court the accused testified: “Both families were putting unbearable pressure on me. So I decided to take them both so as not to hurt anybody’s feelings.”

~Fifty Wives And Shy Man

 Some years ago, the most married man in the world was found in Yugoslavia. It happened this way: A young woman confided to her girl cousin of her impending marriage to a man. The bridegroom was so shy and timid that he wanted to keep the marriage a secret. The cousin got curious. She got a glimpse of the bridegroom after the secret wedding, and recognized him as her own husband. He had also married her secretly, claiming to be shy and timid.

 That was only a beginning. A total of 50 women came forward and claimed that he had individually married them. In each case, he was the same bashful bridegroom. They called him Ivanhoe the Terrible, breaker of women’s hearts. He was a traveling salesman, going from wife to wife by plane, supporting all 50 of them, with the explanation to each that his duties as a traveling salesman kept him away so much of the time.

 They put him in jail, and he begged to stay there. He’d rather be sent to prison than face those fifty wives.

~The Wicked Bible

 In 1623, Baker and Lukas published a Bible in England since called “The Wicked Bible,” because the little word “not” was omitted in the seventh commandment: “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” The printers were heavily fined by the High Commission and the whole edition destroyed.

~Courageous Gift To Henry VIII

 Latimer was raised to the bishopric of Worcester in the reign of Henry VIII. It was the custom of those days for each of the bishops to make presents to the king on New Year’s Day. Latimer went with the rest of his brethren to make the usual offering; but, instead of a purse of gold, he presented the King with a New Testament, in which was a leaf doubled down to this passage, “Whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
