quote:Originally posted by TitanscapeTaking a glance at ancient Greece and modern Greece. Christian culture and the hard wiring of man and questioning if it is uniform. Perhaps Greece took up monogamy because of inate perceptions of true order, justice and honour... Monogamy meaning that a man chooses one wife either in a faith or in open commitment, open declaration before families even in athiests.There is also serial monogamy.Are we a monogomous... species or is it a matter of inspiriation. Or is polygamy against the conscience and chaotic essentially in all cases?Titanscape
quote:Similarly, within societies which formally prohibit polygamy, social opinion may look favorably on persons maintaining mistresses or engaging in serial monogamy.
quote:Secular law in most western countries with large Jewish and Christian populations does not recognise polygamous marriages. However, few such countries have any laws against living a polygamous lifestyle: they simply refuse to give it any official recognition. Parts of the United States, however, criminalise even the polygamous lifestyle, which is unusual; these laws originated as anti-Mormon legislation, although they are rarely enforced.
quote:Originally posted by TitanscapeSome creatures pair up for life and take the sex cells of only the other and mate with but the one it paired up with. I for one and some others hold having one sex partner and one only, in marriage too, as ideal. It is an ideal, but perhaps not all think so. It is considered order as 'Another Someone' wrote, from Christian idealism.Is the ideal, hard wired, or is it just philosophicaly inspired?Titanscape

quote:Originally posted by TitanscapeIt could be simple, perhaps some women have more clitoris and grey matter in the parts connected to the clitoris nerves... putting more pressure on them. Such as a five inch clitoris over a one inch.Titanscape
