We all have our own explanation as to why people break their vow of monogamy within a traditional marriage. But sometimes it's nice to hear someone smarter, funnier, and more scholarly turn our thoughts into words.
I don't know if the Ted talk below makes me feel better or worse about my cold feet, but it's fascinating nonetheless. Here's a snippet:
“These 3 brain systems- lust, romantic love, and attachment- aren't always connected to each other. You can feel deep attachment to a long-term partner while you feel intense romantic love for somebody else while you feel the sex drive for people unrelated to these other partners. In short, we're capable of loving more than one person at a time.”
Press play for more. (Then tell my YOUR thoughts.)
