In a recent New Scientist article about the practicalities of polygamy as a lifestyle choice, a psychology professor said:
Infidelity in monogamous relationships is estimated at 60 to 70 per cent, so it seems that attraction to more than one person is normal.
I found that statistic quite surprising, if not slightly scary… is it really true???
On a different, but not unrelated, point… is the divorce rate going up because more relationships are actually failing? Or is it just because relationships that would previously have been maintained due to the stigma attached to divorce, but that had really failed, are being actively severed? How can we tell?
