Throughout history with the age of chivalry and knighthood, it has always been normal for two men or even multiple men to have duels for the hand of the desired damsel. The woman would have little choice in the matter due to their limited rights during that time, and the winner would take the prize of her hand. Though for a woman, it will always excite their egos when two men are dueling over her.
Now in recent times, there has been the phenomenon of “side chicks” being common place in certain communities. Biologically this makes sense as the most attractive men get the majority of women in the real world. However, the females are foolish to expect any type of real commitment from an individual like this.
