Self Esteem Part Two.

Of course it should be said that there is such a thing as too little self esteem.

The rich men who wanted wives bid against each other for the prettiest girls, while the humbler folk, who had no use for good looks in a wife, were actually paid to take the ugly ones, for when the auctioneer had got through all the pretty girls he would call upon the plainest.... and then ask who was willing to take the least money to marry her.

From a description of a Babylonian tribe by Herodotus. It doesn't sound like the best way t kick off a marriage.
