He noted that the Catholic Church observed a strict marital doctrine.
”This is not that kind of marriage with fanfare; I am doing it to please my aged mother and meet certain demands of the society.
“She has been pleading that we do the right thing, saying this is the woman I have been living with for 40 years.
“We have been following through with the process of annulment of my last marriage, and my former wife who has since remarried cooperated very well, and then in 2017, the marriage was formally annulled.
“My mother actually got the wife for me at the age of 19 because I was a little rascally with women as a young man; she thinks it would curb my sexual excesses,” he said.
