Joe, it's not for me to decide whether people have open marriages or not.  What I was saying is that the *reason* society is mostly monogamous, the reason it's the *normal* thing to do is because of children.  If the mother is having sex with more than one man, then the paternity of the child is unknown.  Yes, I know that we have birth control (not 100 percent reliable) and paternity tests, but we didn't always, so society has been monogamous so that people know whose kid is whose.  Partly this is for inheritance rights, partly so that people aren't accidently marrying their half-sister.
