Is that even a logical reality? Is monogamy an unnatural human condition?
i don't think so, but i've been with the same person for 33 years
I thought I'd be with my husband til death. I come from a family of swans - the women in my family just automatically mate for life. Unfortunately, they have rotten taste in men (except the lesbian, of course; she picked a pretty good egg).
Anyway. Now that ye olde marriage is somewhere beyond dead, I've been considering the possibility that I've been wrong all this time re: monogamy.
Depends on the person I guess. My wife and I have been together for 35 years, she's one tough cookie.
Is monogamy an unnatural human condition? I dunno. I'll have to check with the bride. However, when I informed her it was okay for me to get a BJ from another woman because President Clinton said it wasn't sex she pulled out a large sharp knife and said something I won't repeat here. .
I don't think its natural, for most people its a forced condition, we become attracted to others but can't act on it because of our commitments.
But WA - maybe the two of you are the exception, and the rest of us are the norm. I mean - I'd be one of the exceptions, if I found another exception. But apparently the spouse I was with is a serial monogamist, now on his 3rd significant other.
If managomy was natural we wouldn't have such high divorce rates soaring through the roof, and people wouldn't feel the need to slut around like they do in college.
of course its not natural....we do a lot of things that are not natural for the sake of society
And then there's the 7 year itch. Maybe that's just an average. And maybe it's a cycle, as well. So some people get bit every 7 years, some every 4, etc.
See - I really like George Clooney. And he stays with one woman for how ever long, and then it's on to the next, seemingly with no hard feelings (at least, none that get taken to the tabloids). So maybe he has it right. Relationships, like friendships, are 'for a season'.
