The custom or condition of having only one mate in an intimate relationship, of being dedicated to a single partner.
Monogamy is a traditional ideal in various societies, yet many people in these societies are not monogamous.

Cheating (being involved with someone else, with secrecy and deception) is a destructive way to be nonmonogamous. On the other hand, swinging and polyamory (types of responsible nonmonogamy based on the knowledge and consent of everyone involved) are viable choices for some people.

monogamy means to only have one sexual partner.Humans are usually married for that state, especially men
need to marry women since the women have so many other options(mostly thirsty beta males)which they keep as backup, stupid Stacy. If you can get women easily you don't have to worry about that since women are jealous as shit not wanting other women to have you and if she spreads her legs you have options, so be Alpha please.
Ey this bitch Stacy ended a year old relationship, slept with an alpha guy after 20 minutes of meeting him and I had to wait 3 weeks buying her stuff.All this because she couldn't consider monogamy as an option.
