A bit of history
Polygamy — polygamy, marriage where one party has multiple partners.Most often, a man has several wives. In the modern world polygamy is widespread mainly among Muslims and Hindus, as well as in some African countries. But polygamy is mentioned in the old Testament.
Historically, polygamy was the privilege of the nobility: the richer a person is, the more wives he could have. Arab sheikhs and the Chinese emperors in addition to wives and countless concubines.
So who is he polygamous male? Men like to write off their numerous love Affairs and infidelity "polygamous", supposedly inherent in their nature. But nature cannot create different priorities of females and males of the same species. Then it turns out that women are also polygamous?
In the modern world the concept of "love" and "sex" are not identical concepts. Nature is not predetermined, in which the marriage is polygamous or a monogamous man should live. People fall in love, get married, raise children, because it brought them social conditions of modern society.
The well-known slogan: "the Family is the cell of society".
Polygamy and monogamy
European man chooses monogamy because it is accepted in the society in which he lives. And if in the middle ages in European countries, marriage was purely for practical calculations, in the modern world marriages are made (in most cases) love. But how then to explain her husband's infidelity and love affair on the side, which trap the majority of marriages today?
It's not in a polygamous nature of men, and in his psychology and morality. If man is essentially polygamous, so sex for him is more important than love. More attractive just sex with different partners. He is free in his choice. It is his right. Such a man should not marry and start a family. But as the foundations of society forced him to marry and be a good family man, he is forced to do it purely for practical reasons.
In such marriages the cheating husband no end.
If a man is monogamous, he chooses one. For him love and sex is one concept. So he was raised by his parents, such a relationship was around him in real life, and he will give it to your children.
Polygamous male is a myth. It all depends on social norms and attitudes in society, the family. An important role is played by religion In most Muslim countries polygamy is accepted. But again, this happened historically and it has become a social norm and Way of life that evolved in Muslim families for a very long time, allows to coexist numerous wives. Unshakable Muslim rules and traditions keep order and peace in these families. But this in no way says about the nature of polygamous Muslim men. It's just another community of people.
Advice 2: Who is cheating more: men or women
Sociologists and psychologists from the UK say that women cheat more often than men on the average in 1,5 times. Surely, the fairer sex wants to refute that fact, or at least find out the reasons behind them.
First you need to learn, change men more often than women. Alas, ladies, men often think about adultery than to commit it. This is their polygamous nature to want several women at once. But man, even changing daily thoughts, which can disrupt the fidelity in reality not so often. This is due to the conformism – the man subconsciously do not want to associate myself even a fleeting affair, as this may result in the exposure and destruction of the usual way of life.
Studying a question of who is more prone to infidelity – man or woman, the researchers came to the conclusion that girls can go for adultery because of the emotions and guys are driven by only physical attraction. Of course, this is averaged data and in each pair can occur in a variety of events that will lead to treason.
What women cheat more often than men? Those who are not financially dependent on a husband or a boyfriend. The reason for the infidelity can even be a failure of men in the quarry, consequently the girl hard to respect him. Confident independent woman is easier decided to have an affair on the side, as in the case of exposure is not afraid to remain without means of subsistence. It can be concluded that the frequent female infidelity is the fruit of emancipation.
It is not known whether men cheat more often than women, but that the second cleverly hide adultery is a fact. Perhaps this is because treason can only be approached cold to the girl. She's not so bad, if the husband/boyfriend will convict her of infidelity. It is the lack of remorse and anxiety help to keep the infidelity secret.
It often happens that a woman changing herself admit it. Unlike men, who even if it is "caught on hot", is to deny the obvious. This is due to the fact that for girls the romance is love and the prospect of a new relationship, for which it is not afraid to destroy the old. But men, mostly change for the sake of momentary pleasure, their affair last for a couple of weeks. Is it worth it to leave their families or endure the tantrums of their halves.
So, the question, who is more prone to cheating, the answer is: men are polygamous in nature, so tend to new feelings and change often. The women decide to adultery under the influence of passion, not for sex. Therefore, their infidelity takes longer and often leads to rupture of relations with the same partner.
