Is Monogamy Natural?

By Anneli Rufus, AlterNet. Posted July 25, 2007.

A lifetime of love versus a quick roll with a stranger. It’s funny how we can have two seemingly opposite urges at the same time.

Why Do Doctors Get to Decide When a Woman Is Old Enough to Have Her ‘Tubes Tied’?
Bonnie Zylbergold

A hot naked chick hit on Joe Quirk at Burning Man. That’s what he calls her: a hot naked chick. He’s married. But his wife wasn’t there.

“I was in the middle of a desert,” he remembers. “Nobody would ever know.”

It’s funny how we can have two seemingly opposite urges at the same time. A lifetime of love. A quick roll with a total stranger.

He said no.

Because he loves his wife. Because he wouldn’t want to ruin his life by losing her. But choices such as the one he made that day on the sand aren’t totally matters of morality. They’re not about cartoon angels and devils sparring on our shoulders.

They’re science talking.

Vaunted in the mainstream media, two new reports from the Pew Research Center report and the National Survey of Families and Households indicate that couples become bored and unhappy sooner than was previously thought: more like three years into their togetherness than seven.

The Love Doctor is Back! June 5, 2007

Noticing that this few month old blog has had more than 5,000 hits has gotten the Love Doctor well again.

Thanks for all your interest!

Even while I was taking a slight vacation this site seemed to get a lot of hits by google searches and blog search engines.

Incidentally, if you google search “should I sleep with him on the first date” you’ll find posts from this blog as the third and fourth hits.

Seems people have this issue on their minds because it’s the biggest search that leads here.

Looks like it deserves a few more posts on the topic.

Okay, I’m not sick at all. But I’m taking a break from writing for a few weeks. One can’t always be thinking and writing about dating and relationships now can they?

Will be back in a bit!
