    And here comes my second question, it is about me:

    I have mouth but I don't speak,
    I have a bed, but I never sleep at all
    Who am I ? Who am I ?

    If John doesn't live in Utah, he could be a priest.

    I don't think a priest would schedule 10 weddings on the same day. He's a minister in the Unification Church (Moonies, just in case I didn't get the official name right).

    The second is a river.

    Didn't know the Moonies were into the wedding thing too.

    Alternate answer : One of those Elvis impersonator dudes in Vegas that says three words in Italian, takes a picture and hands you a marriage license printed on the back of a stripclub's flyer.

    If he married 10 people in the day, then it would actually only be 5 weddings. Not quite as many now.

    Not necessarily;
    If he's a priest in Utah, it might only be a single wedding

    Another alternative to original question,
    he may have married 10 different women in 10 different countries ...
    (i don't think this is illegal *crosses fingers*)

    It depends on which countries he might have married in.
    For example, a marriage certificate from Denmark is binding also in Norway; in fact, I don't know any countries whose marriage certificates wouldn't be regarded as valid also in Norway.
    Hence, we have reached the astonishing conclusion, that if TenaliRaman is right, the man cannot have been married with a Norwegian woman!
