Human Behavior Aesop's Fables The Man and His Two Wives

About the Aesop's Fable the Man and His Two Wives, a short story with a moral about human behavior.

THE MAN AND HIS TWO WIVES

In the old days, when men were allowed to have many wives a middle-aged Man had one Wife that was old and one that was young; each loved him very much, and desired to see him like herself. Now the Man's hair was turning gray, which the young Wife did not like, as it made him look too old for her husband. So every night she used to comb his hair and pick out the white ones. But the elder Wife saw her husband growing gray with pleasure, for she mother. So every morning she used to arrange his hair and pick out as many of the black ones as she could. The consequence was the Man soon found himself entirely bald.
