Sad

There is a gene in some naked mole rats that makes them polygamous. The rest are monogamous. Think about why the monogamous one might mate with only one male. No matter how good extra-pair males are, the female's evolutionary biopsychology will make her emotionally adverse if her mate loves another female. The gene in this species affects vasopressin hormone expression.1
