    Well, nature did design males to have the compulsion for sex with multiple partners to spread his gene pool and gave the woman the breasts to nurture and bond the baby should the male leaves but many in modern society dont see that monogamy is not natural and that we foisted it upon ourselves ( else we wouldnt perve and fantasise about others when in a relationship!!)..Imagine a guy followed his biological imperative and impreganted every woman he was with then left for the next one.. The governement wouldnt cope with the welfare bill, so the social engineers of society came up with things like marriage and monogamy to... make the guy provide for what he created, so the tax payer wouldnt have to..problem solved. But given divorce rates people dont realise it till after all the pain and misery! We are compelled to breed and nature gave us horniness to ensure we do.. hanging around is optional and nature doesnt care which one you choose..These slides of the women not needing the guy seem to back up the argument...yeah sure shell come good eventually...but maybe thats cos shes meant to go get prgnant from someone else though... nature wouldnt care..Nature would encourage it.. You got issues with what im saying, take it up with nature.. you know.. that higher power that lets you ave existence....
