Re: why Lu Bu doesn't have any sons?

Probably the same reason why some couples keep getting daughters and not sons no matter how hard they try. It's not like the girl gets pregnant every time and if she does, it's a 50-50 chance for a son or a daughter. That's just the nature of life ;)

Same. Plus I don't know his personal life but it's possible that he didn't take his wives with him when he campaigned/fought/fled etc.

It doesn't seem to have been that uncommon that higher-ranking military officials could take their families with them and house them in separate quarters when they were on extended away from home. But that's a personal choice. We don't know what Lu Bu did, or where his wives were. There may not a lot of time for sex if you know what I mean.

And yeah, everyone else already mentioned, dumb luck. I mean look at some of our families- three girls straight in a row.

He obviously had at least one affair out of official marriage, so maybe he just had illegitimate ones?
