Any additional spouse is referred to as a "co-husband" or "co-wife", respectively. Since many of Bolarus' traditions arose out of the nautical tradition of its inhabitants, and the best source of crew for your vessel is of course your family, polygamy was never frowned upon. If the two partners in a marriage both consent and love a third deeply, the third Bolian can be added into the marriage (which is generally a secular ceremony performed by the eldest member of each family). There is no theoretical limit on the upper size of a Bolian marriage, though in practicality and due to the time it takes for a Bolian to become comfortable enough with another person to consider marriage (there is no divorce on Bolarus), it is rare for marriages with more than four or five spouses to arise. ====Partner==== * '''Marital Status''': Single Zuriba is a typical Bachelor & lady's man. ====Children==== * '''Number of children''': One (that he knows of...) * '''Children''': Zil Zil does not live with Zuriba.

Zuriba also excelled as a pilot at the Academy and eventually became a central member of the renowned Nova Squadron flight team before going on to serve as a helmsman in Starfleet. Zuriba also loves reading Federation literature from around the galaxy and has quite a range of old books from lots of different cultures. He tried to bring a book back from each new planet he visits. This is, ultimately, connected to his long standing interest in other species as he loves to find out as much as he can about other cultures and try out their practices (see sports above)
