Guys, help women improve their status--get a second, and maybe even a third wife!

"Groups opposing polygyny claim to be opposed to the degradation and exploitation of women. My analysis of efficient, competitive marriage markets indicates, however, that the income of women and the competition of men for wives would be be greater when polygyny is greater if the incidence of polygyny had been determined mainly by the relative marginal contribution of women to output. This view is supported by the fact that bride prices are more common and generally higher in societies with a greater incidence of polygyny." -- FROM A Treatise on the Family by Gary S. Becker.
