Extremely common affairs such as: rekindling old flames with ex's on Facebook, emotional cheating with a friend or co-worker, sex while on vacation in another state/country, sex while your spouse is on vacation, sex in your spouses bed while they are at work, 50% of marriages end in divorce, not to mention the sexual desires/fantasies for those other than your partner.
It would appear that monogamy isn't the most effective tool for the human animal.
"Polyamory: often abbreviated as poly, is often described as 'consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy.' It is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved."
With such a lust for those other than your partner, and the actual acts of adultery (Emotional or physical) you'd think more humans would partake in such a system.
Our track record shows it would be fitting, so why don't humans adopt it? Why do we value exclusivity, while ineffectively carrying it out?
What's your take?

Humans were never meant to be monogamous. And I think we keep trying to suppress those natural urges but so far it's not working.
And men try hard to justify their cheating, saying it's "programmed" in them. So why the fuck not have a free for all?
American men and women do not value monogamy as much as they like to think they do.11
