Answer by Viktor Leberecht:

Actually he is as fit and unfit for it as you are. Men and women alike are not fit for mongamy, because we all according to research from all kinds of scientific fields are rather polygamous/promiscuous by nature.

Two books about this that gather the scientific evidence are by Prof. David P. Barash, a world renowned psychologist and zoologist:

The myth of monogamy (written with his wife, a psychologist) from 2001, gathering evidence from research about animals and humans

Out of Eden, focussing exclusively on human beings, from 2015

And the really surprising part is: though Barash makes it clear that sexual monogamy is not in our nature he still thinks it to be the better choice when it comes to morals. Which i think is highly questionable considering all the failed marriages which mostly fail exactly because people are trying to be something – sexually monogamous – that is not in their physical and mental nature.

About Viktor Leberecht 96 Articles
Viktor Leberecht is my pseudonym for my work as a free lance author. I work to ensure that the freedom to freely choose the form of marriage and family is recognised as a human right and that the voluntarily and knowingly entered-into polygamy is legalized as a form of marriage. You can find information about this on my website www.viktor-leberecht.com and my theses on polygamy and monogamy and much information can be found under the menu section polygamy. I am from Berlin in germany and viktor-leberecht.com is the english version of viktor-leberecht.de.
