The question of whether marriage or monogamous relationships are natural for human beings is one that has been asked more and more frequently in the last few decades. As women gain more social and financial independence, it seems that marriage is becoming less and less of a necessity.

Dr. Judith Lipton author of more than 8 books on psychiatry, joins Michelle King Robson and Dr. Pam Peeke to discuss whether monogamy in human relationships is healthy or not on HER Radio

Listen in as Dr. Lipton reveals the two types of monogamous relationships that may indicate the success of a marriage or long-term relationship.
