Why are Men Polygamous by Nature?

Polygamous? Polygamy?

According to this wiktionary website, 'polygamy' means the having of the plurality of socially bonded sexual partners at the same time. It is also according to Islamic form, the marriage of a man to more than one wife. It shows that polygamous is the concept of a person being sexually or emotionally committed to not just one partner but to two or more partners simultaneously. Is it fair or not?

Since the old testaments, this characteristics of man is prominent mostly in men. I am not biased but history tells it all, where we usually hear stories of failed relationships due to the infidelity of the other partner. So this unfaithful acts are no longer new to all of us. Whatever we all tried hard to change things and make it better, still this sinful acts as the bible says is a trend and there is nothing we can do to stop this. Why ? Because this is actually indeed inherent in every man. Why again? It is for the simple reason that man will never be satisfied in one thing.

If men are indeed polygamous by nature, what should a partner do then? Here are the few simple tips to remember and accept:

1. Always remember that men are polygamous by nature. Then, we must try to accept that fact.

2. Acceptance is important. If you chooses to stay in the relationship and do nothing about that unfaithful partner, you must be strong and be ready that any moment, he will hurt you. This is the consequence of accepting that he is polygamous.

3. Instead of crying and having sleepness night, think more of yourself. Learn to love yourself more. Don't focus your time and attention to that polygamous partner, because it is your act of bein 'all giving' to him that made him oblivion of you.

4. Do productive things on your own. But of course, still do your part as a lover to him like the usual greeting, calling, etc.

5. Of course make him feel that you are one of a kind and not one of the many. Make yourself beautiful and productive so that you will be attractive to the other gender, in that way he will focus his attention to you and he will realize that your are a gem and not an ordinary!

Interesting Things You Can Do w/o your Partner:

Instead of thinking too much of our partner, why not do something worthwhile of your time such as the following:

1. Learn to do crochet. This craft hubby will definitely get your attention and time since you'll be enjoying every bit of a second you do with it. Right now there a lots of groups and individuals giving tutorials.

2. Photography. If you love nature and scenery or subject, this is a great hubby for you. Not only you can travel in places, you'll meet new and exciting people who have an eye for this.

3. Mountain Climbing. This have been most everyone's thing since stress time occured. Mostly of my friends who work at Call Center want to do this because its refreshing for them. But when you do this, make sure you have right geers and professionals to guide you to prevent accidents.

4. Blogging. Of course, write whatever you like. If you want to create an online journal or diary about yourself, you may do so. This way you can connect with other people around the world. You might find a friend, who have the same problem with you. Hubpages is the place, or blogger, nuffnag.

5. Pastry Cooking or Culinary Arts. If you love baking or cooking, why not enroll yourself in any academy or grouos offering this. Even I is a frustrated pastry chef, i always I wanted to baked cakes and goodies but due to time and money problem. Hopefully, i will someday.

The articles does NOT answer the question it raised in its title "Why are Men Polygamous by Nature?". It focused on "What to do if your partner is polygamous". *rolls eyes*

You are confusing Polygamy and promiscuousness or none-gamous (faithful to no one).

Polygamy, by definition, is NOT a man being unfaithful/non-committal, it is one being faithful/committed to many people at the same time.

Yes we are unique but we are given the the wisdom to choose right or wrong and by how society dictates it, unfaithful commitment to a partner is not accepted by norms. Im siting thise ways based on my experience to make relationship strong.
