If we are wired to be monogamous, then why do people commit adultry? Or, not feel the need to get married? Or, In most cases, when with someone, feel the strong curiosity or even fantasize about being with someone else? Animals that are truly monogamous seem to stick with that rule, but are we truly a monogamous species, or does culture and religion dictate this?

Couldn't have said it better. I knew someone who cheated only because their sexual needs were not met, not that they were sex "addicts", it's just that sex was non existant in their marriage.
Vasiliki Bouras, You are right I have known more than one person who did the same thing. In a manner of speaking "bad or no sex" was not a "deal breaker" in their eyes. They felt like they could address that issue on the side. To each his/her own.
Yes, trying to pretend the desire is there but NOT, will definetly cause infedelity. That would nag you into eventually resenting your partner, and they would have no idea why. I find many people tend to look a lot and not touch...
Especially when raising a family I believe monogamy is good, yet I understand why things may not work, and a partner may cheat. However, if the partner is lacking in something, isn't it best to just end the relationship, even though they are afraid?
