His father witnessed his birth--he was born before his father. Perhaps his mother died in childbirth? I think there's a better answer to that part, though. And then he became a priest and performed the wedding ceremony for his sister and brother-in-law.ReplyDelete
I have the same explanation as Charli has.ReplyDelete
Yeah.. i second that !! Sounds like the same.ReplyDelete
Although i had some weird logic coming up like his mother got married to someone younger than him.. so he was born b4 his father and then in this rage he would have shouted at his mother who got a heart attack then and died.
This guys goes in depression and then got married to a british female nurse assigned to him who are also called 'sister':D:D:D
Gross i know..way toooo wrong .. So second Charlie :p
Charli had it right, although I'm sure there are other possibilities (the wife was named sister after translating from German or some such, etc...)ReplyDelete
