Had 2 Wives, Now Has None


Milwaukee - (AP) - The Milwaukee traveling salesman who had two wives, two homes and two jobs is getting his life simplified. The legal wife of 33 year old John Reihman was granted a divorce in Sheboygan yesterday, on grounds of adultery.

Last Thursday he had his marriage to his second wife annulled.

Reihman's double life was discovered last August when an aunt informed his second wife that he already had a wife in Sheboygan Falls. At that time Reihman was working nights in a liquor store to help pay his twin household bills.

He pleaded guilty to charges of adultery and in September he was placed on three years' probation.
