I watched some of the documentary about 'The Thriller in Manila' last night. It talked about something probably many of us already know, that Ali was a conscientious objector to the Vietnam conflict and refused to join the military on religious grounds. Later in the documentary it mentioned Ali having fun with his 'mistress' before his third fight with Joe Frazier. I Googled it and discovered he'd had his fair share of extra-marital affairs, but it doesn't mention whether he married these women Islamically before bedding them. After all, you're allowed 4 wives in Islam. Does anyone else know if he did? My partner - who I married Islamically, but legally we're due to marry this year - has always said that there's a severe punishment lined up for people who have sex outside marriage in terms of the afterlife. If Ali wasn't religiously married to these women he was going as much against his religion as he would've going to war. I strongly suspect he went over the limit of four at the very least!! This would make him a big hypocrite in my eyes. BTW, I have told my man if he thinks he's having any more wives, I'll kill him!! He says he has enough trouble with just one! I don't understand why Muhammad Ali is put so much on a pedestal. Don't even get me started on Marilyn Monroe!
