  •  Serial monogamy isn't "natural" either. (0+ / 0-)

    If it were, there would never in the entirety of human history have been such a thing as adultery.

    Also, let's not get unnecessarily gendered about this.  Human females are every bit as likely to want more than one man as human males are to want more than one woman.

    Exclusive partnering is a social construct in humans, not an innate behavior.  It's a code of rules that we've made up because (as you point out) it has social advantages, such as stability.  But humans are always going to want sex with more than just one committed partner, because that is what's natural.
