With this comment I interviewed Mr.Rudolph Curtis he is 51 years of age, born and raised in the city of Nassau, New Providence. He said that he heard this saying among his friends and families and he heard in the context of a friend saying " he had his back - up wife there just waiting for his wife that he was married to die.
