Monogamy is quite romantic. In the lexicon, monogamy is defined as follows: live together with only one partner

Unmistakable signs that your partner is cheating on you

Oh well. According to science, monogamous relationships aren't all that normal. And there are three good reasons for this ...

3 reasons monogamous relationships are actually a made up thing

1. Women and men lose interest in sex over time.

Indeed, science shows that women are not made for "long-term pleasure". What does that mean exactly? For women, passionate love becomes more platonic over time. And men's lust also suffers in monogamous relationships. There's even a name for it. The "Coolidge Effect". Above all, men should be so evolved that they have less interest in the same sexual partner over time. You are looking for something new, exciting.

2. Monogamy kills a woman's "prime"

You may have heard of it: Men experience their sexual climax in their twenties, while women experience their sexuality best between 30 and 40. Researchers have found that women who live in a monogamous relationship during this period complain of displeasure, even though then they should have the best sex of their lives.

3. We naturally want to cheat.

According to the National Science Foundation, only three to five percent of mammals are monogamous. Boom Studies have also found that sexual monogamy is also dependent on the receptors in our brain and hormones. They vary from person to person, which means that some people are more geared towards polyamory than others.

What that means? Just because your partner cheated on you doesn't mean the end of the world. Communication is the be-all and end-all.
