An interesting question came up today while I was doing research on my fathers book.
Are humans monogamous?
I would have said yes without giving it much thought. Apparently researchers disagree on this question. Think about people you know who have had children with more than one partner. Are they monogamous? Serially monogamous? Or polygamous?
The answer has implications for how we think about fathers, and how families have been shaped by evolution--and by their environments.
Thanks for your thoughts.
