    monogamy scientifically speaking is a very uncommon thing to see in nature because it requires a lot more brain power for a species to do it. because you need to figure out how good your mates genes are and there are a lot of risks.

    In short, because the staple of our society is the family and families are far less function if there are multiple husbands or wives. A lot of hippie communes tried to remove the family from existence but that usually doesn't work out.
