Machrineith

polygamy is more natural than monogamy polygamy is more widely practiced in human society now and historically, so that is an indicator, given we are part of the natural world. polygamy is by far most widely practiced in the animal kingdom, even with closely related primates. they did a study on primates, and concluded that the wider a species shoulder, the more polygamous that species is. humans are on the conservative, but polygamous side of things....
