Women benefit from polygyny,men benefit from monogamy

Post by Banano » February 4th, 2012, 3:28 am

When there is resource inequality among men—the case in every human society—most women benefit from polygyny: women can share a wealthy man. Under monogamy, they are stuck with marrying a poorer man.

The only exceptions are extremely desirable women. Under monogamy, they can monopolize the wealthiest men; under polygyny, they must share the men with other, less desirable women. However, the situation is exactly opposite for men. Monogamy guarantees that every man can find a wife. True, less desirable men can marry only less desirable women, but that's much better than not marrying anyone at all.

Men in monogamous societies imagine they would be better off under polygyny. What they don't realize is that, for most men who are not extremely desirable, polygyny means no wife at all, or, if they are lucky, a wife who is much less desirable than one they could get under monogamy

A wealthy man can have a harem of hot girlfriends. Look at Hugh Hefner and his Playboy Mansion. That's the American dream boys.

Multiple women can benefit under one rich man. They are taken care of financially and accommodations are provided for. Women are still little girls inside who seek daddy's approval.

Women have more to lose during sex aka unwanted pregnancies.

We know it's you Konrad, give it up "philosophical filipino".

You just can't stop trolling can you.
