Polygyny as Historic Standard

And then sometimes the science news is just a little boggling. This article stated without qualification, "Monogamy is a recently inspired cultural add-on."

Of course, I like the later caveat: "It's a fallacious idea that we can infer from what is the case something about how we ought to act."

So why do so many people screw up the monogamy thing? Well, looks like it's actually our nature, coded in our genes. Go figure.
