Four Wives or None?

Fiorella has been wondering about male violence in polygamous societies.

Think about South Africa, where plural marriage is practiced a la President Zuma. And think about the turbulent Middle East.

Fiorella cannot help but wonder if the situation in both of these countries is exacerbated by the roiling hormones of young men who know they have nothing to lose because the rich old men grab most of the women.
