Monogamy and Children

I just realized that I’ve had 5 different relationships which ended because the other person wanted to monogamous. Of course there’s always multiple reasons why two people stop dating each other, but monogamy was a key factor for these 5 people.

I would have stayed with all of them, otherwise. For how long? Who knows, but it would have lasted longer.

It’s kind of painful.

Two of them, (or more?), I also know they wanted to have kids. It makes me wonder if there’s a link between monogamy and plans for children.

I wonder if people that plan to procreate are more interested in monogamy because they’re looking for a partner that will be looking inwards towards their family. Their only priorities will be their children and partner, and not be distracted by other love affairs.
