Do you think that based on anthropological explanations infidelity can be a non optional legitimate behavior?
This way, it's like a clash of memes and genes. Then people would not be rational enough to hold their instincts. Not believe it. The inheritance of instincts may in part explain some difficulty in establishing monogamy, but there is an important factor to consider: the extent to which matters, rationally, that change. The institution of marriage is a social imposition, in general. The fact that people get married doesn't mean that they really believe in monogamy, or want to be monogamous. Unfaithful persons marry with the deliberate intention to continue infidels. Moral values outweigh instincts; social constructs do not work.
