Reasons to agree

  1. Even if only 2% of men married more than one wife at a time, if they averaged 3 wives, that would result in 6% more men then their are women. For every 100 women, there would be 6 men that would not find a wife. There are 250 million people in America. 6% of 250 million is 15 million. This scenario would therefore result in 15 million american men not ever having the chance to get married. It is easy to imagine more than 2% of very rich men wanting to marry more than one wife. It is easy to imagine more than 6% of women wanting to marry a very rich man, even if they have to live in polygamy. Maybe not now, but over 100 years as the stigma goes away.
