The Monogamy Gap

Eric Anderson

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a summary of the previous sixteen chapters. It also indicates the need for cultural recognition of varying relationship models without a presumption of the superiority or morality of monogamy. This chapter concludes that multiple sexual social scripts and multiple models of relationships should co-exist as equally viable and moral relationship types. Yet, this possibility is currently nullified by the hegemonic control monogamy maintains. Hopefully this research will help ameliorate this problem of monogamy.
