Monogamy Quotations

I think monogamy is a little unnatural, if I'm totally honest. You change. Things alter. It's the exception rather than the rule and I think it's exceptional to cope with it and manage it. It's hard work.
Robert Powell

We just can't shake monogamy. It definitely demands a kind of rigor and discipline and selflessness. But it's also fun.

Promiscuity is like never reading past the first page. Monogamy is like reading the same book over and over.
Mason Cooley

I often think that woman is more free in Islam than in Christianity. Woman is more protected by Islam than by the faith which preaches monogamy. In AI Quran the law about woman is juster and more liberal.
Annie Besant
