    Is monogamy Natural? Is it natural for human beings to be with one person forever?

    If you are asking that from a Christian, especially Catholics, the answer is a resounding yes. When two persons, man and woman, are united in matrimony, they are no longer two, but one. Christ said that in the Bible. But if the couples are not harmonious in their companionship and they want to part ways, they can do so, but still they are not permitted to re-marry, unless their marriage has been annulled. Legal separation is not a license for either party to re-marry. It only gives them the privilege to divide equally between them their conjugal ownership. Thanks and may God bless you. More power to you, Ranzi. I am your friend from the Philippines.

    If you consider that mankind is just another animal species on this planet then no monogamy is not natural for either Male or Female.

    Breeding is purely about seeking out the most suitable partner to pass your genes onto the next generation.

    Natural selection is where the female should seek out the best breeding male depending upon what is required for survival,be that biggest, fastest, strongest, smartest Etc.

    From a male perspective most males will seek to breed with the greatest number of females to ensure his genetic line is  the most sucessful.

    It has nothing whatsoever to do with religious indoctrination that is merely a human socialised confusion.

    Of course if you look around at todays population you may get the impression that pure nutural selection has gone astray with most females accepting most males purely on the basis that Sex is Fun !

    Yes.  Do you see how much people hurt from broken relationships?  It shouldn't be this way.  I am hoping to have a marriage like those really old couples who still hold hands.  Who wouldn't want that?

    Many species of birds are monogamous, both parents raise the brood, and they faithfully attend each other’s needs during mating and rearing season. However, as fall approaches, they separate, the colorful males take residence perched atop tall structures when, unfettered by the females, are able to watch all open air NFL games. They live happily by this arrangement.

    It's probably not "natural" for most humans, but that is because it's probably not the easiest thing to be committed too.  I'm positive that monogamy has some very positive benefits for the children produced by a monogamous relationship.

    Yes I do feel it is natural. However it does not mean you will stay with a person until one or both of you dies. It is natural in that even when a person becomes involved with someone else they often think of and even interact with there ex-spouse. While we may defy naturalness it does not mean that it is not there.

    What's natural is that human beings can make choices about their lives.

    Romanatic love of the romantic period put an end to real love for a lot of couples, instead they are indoctrinated with a concept of love that is really out of kilter with how people really behave and are.

    From ancient times most societies were not bult on love and family was based on a higher concept than that.  Therefore the children wre far better off. Only since renaisance idealism has the rate of split families sky rocketed over the years.

    Further most stable societies until recent history were plygnist and not monagamy.  Man's social order is more akin to the Chimpanzee and bonobos than to the swan.

    Monogamy is natural in many species,especially birds.
    As for humans, this is another case.
    For some people monogamy is way of life.
    Some Humans are many times NOT part of the nature.
    Also different strokes for different folks.
    You can not put all people in one basket.
