Ariaal men remain single "warriors" until they are around 30, at which time they marry one or more women. those with one wife had lower levels of the hormone than unmarried men, and men with more than one wife had the lowest levels of all.

Testosterone levels are lower among married men probably because they are investing less in mating effort. Or to put it another way, they no longer have to compete for mates.
