Are men really polygamous?

My brother is at it again. He is about to get married to his second wife but I found out that he seeing another girl. He and his first wife divorced because of him being unfaithful. I am married and I was once advised by my mom-in-law that men are sometimes tempted to do the unforgivable. She even warned me, that there will come a time that my husband will be tempted. That is a given, there will come a time when man will want to test whether they are still attractive or not. I have accepted that. but with my brother, it seems that it is a sickness already. Or are men really like that? Polygamous? Any male mylotters are free to give their thoughts.

well im not a man but i have a friend that im sure he wouldnt cheat on his wife ever. when he marries im sure if someone cheats would be the wife not him bcs since his gf cheated on him and they broke up he never found other girl. he says he loves me and he never even tries to approach or love other girls so i dont think all men are polygamous just maybe they are not completely happy with their relation. also i dont think your brother should marry if he thinks that way. that girl maybe really loves him and will get really hurt. he should just be single and have fun with girls that think like him that dont want nothing serious.

Not all but most of them are polygamous. I can say not all because I knew some who are very faithful to their wife. But I can say most of them are polygamous because maybe they are not contented with what they have. I can say it is not a sickness but habit of your brother. Or maybe your brother feels some kind of fulfillment when he does that kind of thing.

Not all men are like that. Sorry to hear about your brother. Every couple have problems. Unfortunatly being unfaithfull takes the majority. Yes I believe its a sickeness and he needs to get help. He cannot use the excuse he was tired of the girl. Everyone needs someone in their lives. If he is not happy with his partner then they need to find new ways to excite their lives. Hope there is children in the mix of things. Happy lotting.

Men are not the only ones who indulge in risky behavior such as cheating. It seems that society is much more accepting of sleeping around than it used to be. Everyone is tempted at sometime in their lives...it's how you handle that temtation that is important. In my opinion, there are a couple of reasons someone may decide to be unfaitful. First, they are bored, Second, they are immature, and third, they are thinking with the wrong body part.

some men seem not to be able to help themselves. Maybe it simply is a matter of biology, it is said that a male will attempt to impregnate as many females as possible therefore negating the whole construct of momogamy. However, in modern times we are constraigned to adear to some kind of familial pattern, often leading to the kind of conflict you speak of.

in general, not only men are polygamous but also women. it only happens to be more attributable to men since women are secretive in this particular issue but men are so open and in fact because of pride men usually brag themselves if they indulge in this fooly. the root cause of this is the ignorance of human beings on the rules that strictly enjoin men and women to abide by the vows of marriage
