1. Nuclear Family: Ideal. Should be a virgin. Arranged by wise parents would be better than 50%+ divorce rate and broken families.
2. If Widow does not have a child, she should have one by the brother to continue family line. Unlike modern society, after marriage she is part of the male's family.
3. Concubines: I'm not for it, but high end genetic material could reproduce at a higher rate.
4. Rapist must pay father. Seems like a good solution, esp. with possibility of woman lying and claiming rape. If she lost her virginity to a man, she should marry him + he has to be responsible for her.
5. Woman's property is man's property. Yes as head of household.
6. Prisoners of war: Kill the males, steal the virgins, spread your seed. Warlike + this is how Iceland started. Would also better represent male role as warrior / defender and backbone of society. If males fail, society is destroyed.
7. Polygany: If the male can manage it and is of high genetic worth, might be beneficial.
7. Slave + Slave: I don't like slavery, but it would make sense for masters to breed their slaves similar to how one treats dogs/cattle.
1. Not ideal if its an exceptional man of whom we want many more of. Such a man requires many wives, preferably the daughters of other such distinguished men.
3. Its ok if the concubines are sterilized and purely for enjoyment. May be considered disrespectful to the true wives however, so I'm not in favor.
4. I believe if it was a clear case of rape, the man should be murdered by the womans family. The virgin shouldn't be married to her rapist in any circumstance, that is insanity. To me this is the worst form of marriage on the chart.
5. No slaves, the institution of slavery has been humanities curse (by allowing the idiotic to live)
6. The virgins harbor genetics that the losers have, do you want your kids to be the grandson of a loser? Sterilize if you want but certainly no breeding. Similar to 3
7. Best form for the best men.
Double 7. SLAVES MUST DIE, NO SLAVES, NO PRISONERS, NO WEAKNESS. PICK YOUR OWN DAMN CROPS.
