If you can't imagine being married to the same person for years and years, guess what? Maybe you don't have to be. That's the lesson recently imparted by a man name Dale Partridge. His shocking explanation for why he feels he can be married to multiple women--all at the same time--has left people feeling shocked.
And it seems that no one was more stunned than his wife.
It all started when Partridge, an author and entrepreneur, posted a picture of his wife along with a caption that captured the attention of thousands.
"Men are so worried that marriage will leave them with 'only one woman' for the rest of their lives," he wrote. "That's simply not true. I fell in love with a 19-year-old rock climber, married a 20-year-old animal lover, started a family with a 24-year-old mother, then built a farm with a 25-year-old homemaker, and today I'm married to a 27-year-old woman of wisdom."
"If your mind is healthy, you'll never get tired of 'one woman,'" he continued. "You'll actually become overwhelmed with how many beautiful versions of her you get to marry over the years."

Partridge, who has been married to wife Veronica for seven years, clearly struck a chord with his readers, many of whom began describing their spouses' evolutions in similar terms in the Facebook posts' comments. But Veronica, who is pregnant with the couple's third child, was perhaps most touched of all.
"I read it to her and she said, 'Wow, that just hit every heartstring you could possibly hit,'" Partridge told TODAY.
