A Congolese man has married triplets after they proposed to him simultaneously.

The groom, Luwizo, told Afrimax English he thought he “was dreaming”.

Luwizo originally fell in love with one of the triplets, Natalie but when she introduced him to her two sisters, love sprouted two more branches.

Natalie, Nadege and Natasha all popped the question at the same time.

“When we told him he had to marry all of us, he was shocked,” one of the women said. “But because he had already fallen in love with all of us, nothing could stop our plans since we were also in love with him.”

“I was obliged to marry all of them because they are triplets”, said Luwizo. “It wasn’t an easy decision because until now, my parents don’t understand what I’m doing.”

“You have to lose something in order to gain another,” he added, while definitely not scanning the room for exits.
