Monogamy is a State of Higher Evolution

Waverly: "I think what he is trying to say is that monogamy isn't natural. The male species is hard-wired for genetic diversity. So, the instinct is to, ya know, fertilize as many eggs as possible - to have sex."

Smash: "Exactly!"

Waverly: "Yeah, but human beings are different. I mean, civilization is based on the repression of instincts. When we act contrary to out instincts, that's when things get interesting. A lot of people would say that monogamy is a state of higher evolution - with the right person."
