Could be, though I can't think of supporting data.
Have you thought about Egypt, Greece, Rome and the barbarian tribes of
Europe? I think it was more common for agrarian societies than for nomadic
tribes, although the capture of women for wives seems more common among
nomads. The Bedouin are famous (at least in story and song) for capturing
wives. Any civilization that held slaves usually took them by force. That
means just about every civilization up to modern times and also includes
some of them.
