Not advocating for cuckoldry, but actually it does have a lot of roots in evolutionary biology. Around the world, cultures where the average adult is unlikely to survive (survival rate dependent on hunting, potentially dying young, etc) actually do prefer promiscuous wives. This is because if I can't be sure thats my child and someone else can't the child will be taken care of even if I die. It actually propels the gene pool forward. In a culture where the adult is likely to survive to care for the child then we see monogamy start to take root because if i'm going to give this child resources I want to be sure its mine.
in addition check out sperm competition.
Turns out nearly all behaviors are biological adaptations. The more you know! Cuz knowledge is power! Replies:
