Islam, multiple wives - must be a lot of single gu

    It just occurred to me if some Muslims societies allow multiple wives and some guys have a dozen or more wives doesn't it mean there are a lot of desperately lonely male Muslims out there with no partners at all? Given only about 50% of the population is female it seems to me that there are a lot of our Islamic brothers who are enduring the mother-of-all-dryspells? If multiple wives are widespread it must have profound sociological implications I would have thought. Just thinking out loud, after all it is a numbers game and there simply aren't enough women to spread around are there?
