Look Who’s Defending Monogamy

By Glenn T. Stanton

Is monogamy merely a biblical peculiarity — similar to baptism, circumcision or keeping the Sabbath — fine for those who chose to adhere to it, but hardly compelling to those outside the faith?

A fascinating and brand-new multidisciplinary study conducted by a small group of psychologists, economists, and anthropologists from the University of British Columbia, UCLA and UC Davis tells us absolutely not. They explore why monogamy as a “historical rarity and apparent ill-fit with much of our evolved psychology” has spread so successfully throughout the world in recent centuries.
