ost creatures are not monogamous by nature. It is either something that one chooses, or has it forced upon them. That is not a judgement one way or another, that is just a simple statement of fact.
For myself, I have always chosen to be monogamous because I am extremely selective in the first place, be they considered consort, paramour or husband. For the many years that I have lived, I have had my share of lovers, to be sure. But when I decide to be with someone, truly with them, and especially when there are oaths involved, I am with that person alone. Though temptation inevitably will present itself, I will never betray that bond for the time once the commitment has been made. Only the weakest of beings would fall away from such commitments.
Time and temperament, Fate and I ultimately decide who, how, when or how long I share my bed and my life with anyone. Within that there must be a certain level of trust or it is all for naught. Without that there is little point in the idea of monogamy in the first place. It is the trust that is the hardest thing of all to render to begin with. Never should it be given because of passion alone. There must be something much deeper that is there in order to get anyone to believe in the very idea of such deep and lasting commitments.
