When we think of polygamy, we often imagine men with multiple wives. However, according to a recent study, men don’t get much out of this arrangement. In fact, it’s women who should have multiple husbands as they’re the ones who benefit from it more.
It is well known that men benefit reproductively from having multiple spouses, but the reasons why women might benefit from multiple marriages are not as clear. Women, as a result of pregnancy and lactation, can’t reproduce as fast as males.
