Q: What is the story about?
The man with 4 wives, the 4th wife is referring to our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it’ll leave us when we die. The 3rd wife referring to our possessions, status, and wealth. When we die, they all go to others. The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave. The 1st wife is, in fact, our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth, and sensual pleasure.
