The ladies of the house by Blue-Aqua-san95 The ladies of the house by Blue-Aqua-san95
Since the Aler species has an alarmingly low number of males, it is acustomed to have more than one wife. Another important note is that the females can only give birth once and remain infertile for the rest of their lives. Of course some females are born infertile. In most cases they do not survive after the age of 19, due to "Mercy killing".

Sakul has two wives.
His first wife, Ipton is the eldest of the family and the only mother. She is the head of the family and nothing happens without her approval. Her daughter, Eda is only 2 years old.

His second wife, Ili is an infertile (not born) and caused much disaproval when Sakul decided to take her hand. Luckily as a married wife no harm can be done to her by the law. Ili sees herself more as a helper and babysitter rather than a wife.  

As for Sakul, he's happy to know that both of them can handle everything perfectly on their own and don't see each other as competitors.

But they're infertile aren't they the ones less likely to increase it?

Well they are more likely to be born.

About 5% Males are born and then you have 95% females.
Out of every 5 females, at least 2 are infertile.

The head of the state also kinda sees them as useless.
