      the worthless word for the day is: quadrigamist

      [cf. L. quadrigamus, married four times]
      one who has married four times; esp., one who has
      four wives or four husbands at the same time

      "On this date in 1540 [Jul 28], quadrigamist Henry VIII
      married his fifth unfortunate wife, Katherine Howard,
      whom the Tudor king called his "rose without a thorn."
      He would soon become a sexigamist."
      - Jeffrey Kacirk, Forgotten English (2010)
