Default History of Love (& Sex & "romance")

Today, I'm wondering how monogamy came to be the "default setting" and "norm" in most world cultures I know about.

And I'm wondering why non-monogamy has so much taboo around it.

The book "Sex At Dawn" (which has its own thread in here) must go into some of this, though I've not yet had a chance to read this book (which is on my list!).

If anyone wants to link to relevant essays, conversations, book reviews, etc., I'd appreciate it. Let's use this thread to explore how we came to have the social attitudes which prevail.
