How Would You Plan the Estate of a Man with 39 Wives?

Polygamy Sixty-six-year-old Ziona Chana lives in a four-story building in India with his 39 wives, 94 children, and 33 grandchildren. The family consumes 200 pounds of rice and 130 pounds of potatoes each day. The women cook, clean, and wash while the men farm and take care of livestock.

Ziona, who heads the “Chana,” a local Christian religious sect that allows polygamy, said that he’s ready to expand his family and is “willing to go to any extent to marry.”

See Man Has 39 Wives, Nearly 100 Children, Yahoo! News, Feb. 22, 2011.

Special thanks to David S. Luber (Attorney at law, Florida Probate Attorney Wills and Estates Law Firm) for bringing this to my attention.
