Nunca é demais repetir

Humans aren't especially good at monogamy. Evidence gathered from surveys and paternity tests suggests that 25 percent of women and 30 percent of men cheat on their spouses at least once during marriage. The evolutionary reason that men cheat is pretty simple: to father as many children as they can. It's more complicated for women, who can only give birth so many times. The quality of the child, then, wins over quantity. Because men with the best genes aren't always the most stable and resourceful partners (they don't have to be), women might marry the latter but cheat with the former. Then they can become pregnant with a genetically superior child who will, if her mother can pull it off, grow up with the help of her unwitting spouse.
No fundo, como sempre e óbvio, a culpa é *delas*:
The old adage says that a wife can't change her husband, but the truth is that women for thousands of years have been shaping one crucial male attribute: sperm. Men tend to produce as many sperm as possible as quickly as possible, a manufacturing decision that sacrifices quality control: Their sperm are frequently mutated or deformed as a result. Why, then, do men make millions of sperm at once? Because they're adapting to ward off the effects of women's frequent cheating, according to a paper published in December in the Journal of Theoretical Biology.

Então, resumindo, eis os fundamentos do chamado encornanço:
  • É a evolução, estúpido: há que reproduzir para assegurar a continuidade da espécie - com quem, ou quantas, é uma mariquice com que a sobrevivência não se pode compadecer;
  • A culpa é do gajedo: querem reproduzir com gajos tipo Clooney mas criar o rebento com totós insuspeitos que lhes ofereçam estabilidade e segurança - vulgo bananas.

Alguém (não sei quem), disse em tempos (não sei quando), algures (não sei onde)algo como isto:
"A monogamia é a maior das provas de imperfeição cultural do ser humano!"
Há também quem diga que "o coração tem mais quartos do que uma casa de putas!"
Um abraço:
