What makes us humans crave to have just one partner for life?


I just read an article about those who have open marriages and the beliefs about them and I got to thinking. What is it that we are really craving by being with just one person forever? Not saying I agree or disagree with open marriages. Just wondering what made humans decide that the ultimate goal was to only have physical relations with one person for the majority of life.

    The article I was actually reading may have been related(not sure). It was debunking an old study that was found to be biased. New unbiased (so they say) studies are showing those with open marriages are less likely to divorce. Not sure how true.

    Your last sentence made me wonder, if she said you wouldn't lose her and was comfortable would you feel different about being just with her?

    Women and men have completely different ideologies about this subject. What man could ever respect a tramp? "Open marriages?" Just a ticking time bomb. If you want to sleep around- don't get married. Today's kids are confused enough.

    I think it is deeper than u think. People do not want to b alone. Beauty & sex r short lived. Committing to one mate brings security, comfort & a knowledge someone will always be there. These are things sharing oneself amongst many cannot pro
