Babylonian Wife Market

Finding the right life partner can be a daunting task. Fortunately, resurrecting an ancient Babylonian custom is sure to solve all these woes.

According to Herodotus, the first step is to round up all the marriageable women.

Then the auction starts.



Eventually the bidding wanes.





Fortunately, there is a solution for this.


The process continues until all the women are paired.


Sexist? You bet. Degrading? Absolutely.

But practical. Very, very practical.
