Maya Angelou once said: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.” Sometimes in relationships people might be honest about who they are, but we’ll sometimes be blind to it, ignore red flags, or think that if they spend enough time with us that they’ll realize that we’re the one.
But, as DNLee wrote in her study Hip Hop Evolution Files: Examining Infidelity from a Biological Prospective “monogamy is a myth.”
“Why is monogamy a myth? Well for the most part, among people and the entire animal kingdom, it rarely exists in its pure form – a single mate for life. Love ain’t so simple [and] neither is monogamy… We’re just as carnal as our beastly cousins. The truth is, more often than not, like the man in the very beginning of [Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.“] music video – who hesitates, but eventually discards the token of his monogamous relationship – many people struggle to be faithful to their mates.”
