Do you occasionally wonder what JBS Haldane\’s reaction would be if he found out that his wife had slept with his brother? Would it be better or worse if she had slept with eight of his cousins?
And to take the question seriously….
In the only polyandric society I\’ve heard of (bits of the Himalayas basically and I seem to remember that Theo. Dalrymple started out as a writer by regaling us with tales from the area. Slightly Kipling….) it is brothers who marry one wife.
And a couple of the big cats, lions and cheetahs, have brothers chasing and multiple mating with the female.
So, erm, better.
Less messy certainly.
