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?
