Monogamy refers to the practice of developing a romantic and serious relationship with just one partner at a given time, instead of having several partners simultaneously. Monogamous relationships are relationships where two people exclusively have sex with and date each other. They also don’t share this kind of connection with other people outside of the relationship itself. There is also emotional, romantic, and sexual exclusivity between the couple.
These days, monogamy has become the most mainstream approach to many relationships across different societies although this is not universal in any way. Various cultures all over the world are practicing polygamy dating or a marriage between several people. Historically speaking, many of the preindustrial societies have engaged in one form or another of polygamy, which is often in the form of polygamy, where a husband is shared by two or even more women.
