No...it's origins are religious...
Look around you and just ask yourself if we're just biological?! We have... a brain. So, we also have choices, known the repercussions of being unfaithful or being monogamous. Some are better at relationships than others, some had good teachers, others not. But when I see instincts being cited it annoys. Instincts are often used to justify poor behavior
Your view is called reductionist, and it's incorrect. It ignores the effects of culture and the social. The body is a tool, and the brain dominates, not instincts.
I can't think of anyway that doesn't have some form of social organization and where instincts dominate
girl, you naively infer that being with more than one person brings repercussions, much less that being with another person is 'unfaithful'.
Mrgettingbetter, Are you blind or just not very bright? Read the argument and see who is naive.
I don't think there's anything biological that should make us monogamous.
It seems that you may be injecting religion and evoluton into you question by using the words Designed and Animal ! Experience in nature shows that monogomy is the exception, so for those with the evolution mindset I would say No ! On the other hand for those with the religous mindset I would say yes ! It is all relative in view of the mindset we may have !
I think humans are designed to f- everything up regardless of what they were designed to do originally lol
This one is.
Yes without question!!!
Yes, if they want to live.
I would say no and that the urge to look at or flirt with members of the opposite sex seems normal. Being monogamous is the choice not to act on instincts. I believe we make choices not to act on instincts every day, like the urge to kill the person our spouse was unfaithful with. Of course this argument assumes that an urge is actually an instinct which may be up for debate.
Most definitely NOT!!!
I think human beings are still trying to come to grips with monogamy. The chimpanzee sleeps with multiple partners and that is our closest living relative with over 95% of the DNA the same.
From an evolutionary perspective, once a female is pregnant, she's not going to be able to just fend for herself that easily, so I'd say yes.
I dont think so. Not in me to be that way.
