Are women the less romantic, loving and monogamous oriented gender?
>initiate 80% of divorces
>take longer to fall in love and their love is generally less intense
>fall out of love more easily and also lose sexual interest in their partner
>move on faster after a breakup
>place immense value on status and money. It's less about their partners and rather what they can extract from them
>expect their partner to court them and make romantic gestures, not vice versa
>some studies suggest that single women are happier
Part of it can be explained by culture, but it's unlikely that these differences are entirely caused by that.
What's the evolutionary cause for this? At first glance it seems that men should be the ones to be less preoccupied to be enamored with one individual, since they can easily spread their seed and have little to no consequences from doing so.
Women are pickier because they have a greater risk with pregnancy, but once they get a partner, why would they grow tired of it quicker? Assuming evolution selected for ambitious women who wanted to do better, it seems like a risky strategy.
Women generally are more submissive and less rebellious, and yet they seem less fit for monogamy.
