We all know and term Krishna as Radha – Krishna, but do you know that among Krishna’s wives Radha doesn’t exist. The fact is that Radha and Krishna do not get married.

In marrying 16108 queens, Lord Krishna exhibited His immeasurable opulence. Lord Krishna is the original Supreme Personality of Godhead. To marry so many queens and maintain them in great while keeping them fully satisfied is nothing wonderful for him. No other person in existence can achieve such a feat of opulence, power, and perfect marital harmony.
