Following the 30 Years' War time, much loss of life of soldiers caused there to be many single woman and girls. The population was reduced from 17 million to only 4 million.   As a result, there were areas in Germany where men were allowed to have 2 wives.  More on this topic can be found in an article by Udo Macholdt in the Brandenburgische Genealogische publication "Roter Adler".  Year 4, Bd. II, Heft 1 1/2009.
