Children of a man with many wives can reveal the name of their father identically. But children of a women with multi-husbands have to name their fathers differently...Perhaps, this could be the one of many reasons behind such practices...!

A man can make many women pregnant during the same time. A woman cannot conceive from many men at the same time.

Bcoz generally all societies r male dominated. There is no problem if a man or woman keep more than one sex partner at a time. In fact it shud b so. Yes, there r a very few societies where a woman without multiple sex partners r osctracised.
