Filled Under:

The world’s largest family

The world’s largest family lives in India and consists of a man with 39 wives and 94 children.

American polygamists might grab more headlines, but none can hold a candle to Ziona Chana, an Indian man who boasts what the Daily Mail calls the world’s largest family: 39 wives, 94 children, and 33 grandchildren. The 66-year-old Chana happens to lead a sect that allows and encourages him to expand his family at will, and, yes, he’s still looking. Most of the time, his wives sleep in communal dormitories, with a rotating lottery to govern who sleeps with Chana.
