Now, now, we have laws against that kind of thing. (At least nowadays, fortunately!)

If there is some sort of formulaic relationship between the two, then Shlomo Hamelech would be dead before his bar mitzvah!

On the other hand, Joseph Smith (founder of Mormonism) had dozens of wives (include a couple of 14-year olds) and croaked at 39!
