Moreover, if an ancestral woman bore a child with this extra-marital partner, she also increased genetic variety in her descendants.
Infidelity had unconscious biological payoffs for both males and females throughout prehistory, thus perpetuating the biological underpinnings and taste for infidelity in both sexes today.
Moreover, their scores were dose dependent: those carrying two of these genes showed the lowest scores, followed by those carrying only one allele.
Men carrying the 334 gene also experienced more marital crisis (including threat of divorce) during the past year, and men with two copies of this gene were approximately twice as likely to have had a marital crisis than those who had inherited either one or no copies of this allele.
Here are the 10 most common myths and the truth behind the scenes:1.
Article Jonas Beiler and Shawn Smucker In the face of infidelity, one man made a commitment to keep loving his wife, no matter how he felt or how she responded.

However, monogamy is only part of the human reproductive strategy. Current studies of American couples indicate that 20 to 40% of heterosexual married men and 20 to 25% of heterosexual married women will also have an extramarital affair during their lifetime. 1) The sex drive evolved to motivate individuals to seek copulation with a range of partners; 2) romantic love evolved to motivate individuals to focus their mating energy on specific partners, thereby conserving courtship time and metabolic energy; 3) partner attachment evolved to motivate mating individuals to remain together at least long enough to rear a single child through infancy together. Researchers have broadened the definition of infidelity to include sexual infidelity (sexual exchange with no romantic involvement), romantic infidelity (romantic exchanges with no sexual involvement) and sexual and romantic involvement. Myriad psychological, cultural and economic variables play a role in the frequency and expression of infidelity. In a recent survey of single American men and women, 60% of men and 53% of women admitted to “mate poaching,” trying to woo an individual away from a committed relationship to begin a relationship with them instead. Regardless of the correlation between relationship dissatisfaction and adultery, among individuals engaging in infidelity in one study, 56% of men and 34% of women rated their marriage as “happy” or “very happy,” suggesting that genetics may also play a role in philandering. Studies show the possibility of a gene that correlates to infidelity.
