Someone asked me to name a companion who has only been married once in his life?
 After much searching, no brainer was found. I was forced to turn to the books of the Companions.

(Name: Jundab bin Janada)

 who had no wife except Hazrat Umm Dharr until his death.

But when he wrote about the situation of a person who had only one wife, he would write that such and such a person died and there was such and such on top of him ie wife
