I don't think that's a very good idea. If anything I'd say there would have to be an equal number of men and women in each marriage.
If polygamy was socially acceptable, what would most likley happen is that are some relationships with one woman and several men but the vast majority of marriage would be one men several women. if you ask a lot more women would consider sharing a partner then men. Men don't share and evolutionary that makes a lot of sense. Women on the other do also care a good bit about income/securtiy...
I suppose for women that would mean more choice. The most sucessfull and attractive men will likley be able to attract more than one woman. So women can choose if they want to be with one of them and share or with someone less sucessfull and attractive and have him for yourself.
For men on average it would mean less choice. In fact a big number of men would be left out with no possiblity of ever finding a wife.
History has shown that's a gurantee for war,violence,poverty and ineffciency.
Not mention children tend to suffer in polygamous relationships.4
