Powerful Wives and Faithful Husbands
This paper studies the influence of social norms to a marriage bargaining process, when there is the private information on each player's side. We add hidden information on the player's characteristic or type to a marriage bargaining model where social norms determines the sharing rule for the gains from marriage. Then, unless one has a very high stand alone budget at his/her diposal, only unions between two high type persons can rach utility improvement for both.
