  1. I read somewhere before that historically 40% men reproduced while 80% women did.

    Marriage was encouraged especially in religions to be able to get more men in relationships and to benefit men. In the past it was believed single men, especially those who had nothing valuable to live for, were more prone to aggression. It was believed men having a wife and children would make them give his energy into that.
