Cuckolded Fathers Rare in Human Populations.

Cuckolded Fathers Rare in Human Populations.

Abstract
Contemporary data of extra-pair paternity (EPP) in human populations may be biased by the use of modern contraceptives. Studies have now estimated historical EPP rates in several human populations. The observed low EPP rates challenge the idea that women routinely 'shop around' for good genes by engaging in extra-pair copulations.

I'll agree with that. Cuckoldry is far more widespread in recent times due to contraception giving women the ability to sleep around from a relatively early age without the consequences of getting pregnant. Then later if they get married, they don't have the same attachment and fidelity to their husbands when compared to women in the past who were more likely to be virgin brides and tended to be faithful to their husbands.

The term 'cuckold' may be rather over-used to describe a wide variety of normal situations that have nothing at all to do with marital infidelity, like the assumption of a step-father's surname or an informal adoption.

I'm intrigued. What is your definition of "sleeping around"?

Were the men also "sleeping around" or were boys just being boys?

Apparently these days married couples don't only have sex for procreation and may use contraception!

Wouldn't the availability of contraception to married women reduce the likelihood of a pregnancy result from having sex with someone who isn't your recognised partner?

What about the perspective viewpoint of the offspring who is verbally and physically reminded of such a union. How rare do you think that is? A cockold husband can be a dangerous menace to the overall viability of such a union to all those involved. To anyone who has experienced such a situation may serenity comfort you always.

Then there is the situation where a guy has been coerced into believing that a baby was his and so he married said devious woman. I'm wondering if that could be a possible scenario with my (doubtful?) maternal grandfather. Quite probably not, but that could explain where my mysterious Italian (7%) came from.
