might well not have

How do you feel about "might well not have to" below? Do you use it?

But, in the future, men might well not have to be so nice in order to guarantee the success of their societies - and themselves!

It sounds awkward, but I suppose it's alright. I myself however would not use it. I would say something like this: "But in the future men may not have to be so nice in order..."
