HoloDust said: As a general rule (with exceptions), men tend toward polygamy, women toward hypergamy. Allow no fault divorce, especially one that favours women when it comes to court rulings, and you get biology to do its thing...not to say some men don't benefit from it as well.
Yep hypergamy is what put me off women. For those of you that don't know hypergamy is a female biological instinct to garner as many resources from a man as possible thus ensuring her survival. So they want the wealthiest highest status mate they can get wether they are in a relationship, marriage or single doesn't matter because hypergamy has no end. So if a highest status male becomes availible and she knows she can snag him she will have no problem ditching you and monkey branching to him. Hypergamy is the complete opposite to loyalty that is why when a man loses his job the woman ditches him, this is because she doesn't have access to his resources anymore and her ingrained hypergamous instincts tell her to leave.
The takeaway from hypergamy is the brutal truth that women only love men as long as the man is providing benefits, in other words women don't love men for who they are, they only love what men do for them. You can deny it if you don't like the truth but hypergamy is a scientific biological fact because in the past before civillisation if a woman paired up with an incompetent mate with no resources then she and her children would literally die.
