A 36-year-old woman from Amugagara, Uganda, has married three men at once, after her monogamous relationship failed. The daughter of a Christian pastor in Uganda's Teso community, Ann Grace Aguti has upset her clansmen after she decided to get multiple husbands.

But she has defended her choice, saying that she is an adult and can make decisions for herself. The reason she decided to marry three men, was because her first husband turned out to be a big disappointment. "My husband was useless and I remained the breadwinner. When I left him, I started looking for that special someone. But I have not yet found him because even now, I have to feed the men that I have [married]. So, my search continues," Aguti said.

Her three husbands—Richard Alich, a widower and retired police officer, John Peter Oluka, a peasant, and Michael Enyaku, a senior bachelor—live in their own respective huts in the woman's six-hut complex, and reportedly get along very well. They eat all their meals together and obey Aguti's every instruction. They consider her the head of the family.

Her father, Pastor Peter Ogwang, claims that while his daughter is currently married to three men, there were more of them in the past, and that he and the other villagers had driven away one of them just last year for attacking her with a sickle.

Chinese mum suffers heart attack trying to explain mathematical problem to son

A mother from China, who was trying to teach her son how to solve a math problem, got so worked up, that she suffered a heart attack. The woman, surnamed Wang, had to be rushed to the hospital on November 1. She was apparently explaining a math problem to him and got so frustrated when he didn't get it that her heart gave out.

"I explained it to him many times but he still didn't get it. I was so angry that I could explode," Wang told Chinese reporters. "Suddenly, my heart was palpitating and I couldn't breathe properly."
Wang quickly realised that something was seriously wrong with her and she called her husband, who drove her to a hospital. Doctors there diagnosed the young mother with myocardial infarction, commonly known as heart attack. "If there had been any delay, she could have suffered
heart failure," Dr Yang Xiaoxue said. The woman is currently recuperating at the hospital.
