Abuja - If you are a man thinking that your best years are behind you, do not fear. There is a way to prolong your life – simply get another wife.
An ecologist from the University of Sheffield in the UK recently found that men from polygamous cultures tend to live 12% longer than their monogamous counterparts, New Scientist reports.
The ecologist Virpi Lummaa researched the life spans of men in 140 traditionally polygamous countries and 49 mostly monogamous countries.
Lummaa presented her findings at the annual meeting of the International Society for Behavioral Ecology in Ithaca, USA.
