monogamy is a farce!

monogamy is a farce!
EDIT: I just found a paper (posted here)estimating the rate of human EPC to be between <1%-30% with a median of 3.7%. In other words, 1 in 25 fathers reading this are raising children that are the product of their partners infidelity...

In a previous post (link) the bold claim was made that there is no biological predisposition towards human monogamy, but instead what drives us toward monogamy-like mating system is culture. There seem to be several independent lines of evidence that supports my position.
Anecdotal evidence. How many of us:Have never had a friend who cheated?Cheated ourselves?Know somebody who was actually cuckolded?

polygamy is very common in society. It's called dating

The fact that should be shining like a red bulb in the night, is that polygamy is very common in society. It's called dating and crumbles to pieces when a couple in the dating sect decide to get more serious and cement a minimal deal, also known as "going together." There's a plethora of benefits with monogamy and it will certainly remain a dominate element is the relationship game. The knowledge of who's and how many ding-dongs are going in who's and how many hoo-hahs isn't anyone's business except the owners of the aforementioned ding-hahs, as long as all parties are consenting.
