As a society are we returning to our animal origins? Couple of examples which seem to be very similar to the animal world: It is now fully acceptable for mothers to have kids by several different fathers and for none of the fathers to play any role in their kids lives. This seems to be on the increase and seems very similar to the role of roving males. Women now place more emphasis on their mates than on their partner. Again it seems that the instinct to protect the kids and gather a strong sisterhood is an overriding urge and males are only used for procreation. Just me or is society moving to a more traditional animal behaviour when it comes to relationships? I do appreciate that they have always been similar in a lot of respects but the examples above always held us different from them.
