A Sense of Entitlement
To help illustrate this male mindset, I’ll tell you about my buddy Aaron. Like many men who think like him, Aaron doesn’t believe that monogamy is natural or sustainable. But in order to fit into society, he leads two very distinct lives. On one hand, he’s a loving husband and provider and loves his partner wholeheartedly. On the other, he takes a extramarital partner when he can. Aaron and those like him think that men sleeping with several women is as natural a male tendency as becoming a groupie is for females. Why get married if you think this way? I asked Aaron the same thing. His answer: “The best parts of society aren’t built on natural human tendencies. They’re built on blending those with order, structures and institutions like marriage.” This is a very common rationalization.
