Your assumption is wrong.

The inner margins are smaller than the outer margins because when you
combine those pages to form a book, then the two inner margins combine to
one white area optically, and for asthetic considerations of margin widths
you have to deal with the book, not the single pages.

For example using the geometry package.

Hope that helps,
