In Elizabeth Weil's cover article in today's NY Times Sunday Magazine she writes: "In psychoanalytic thought, the template for monogamy is forged in infancy, a baby with its mother. Marriage is considered to be a mainline back to this relationship, its direct heir. But there is a crucial problem: as infants we are monogamous with our mothers, but our mothers are not monogamous with us. That first monogamy — that template — is much less pure than we allow." Perhaps the origin of the cuckold's fantasy/fetish is a vestigial memory of a primal relationship in which his fidelity was not reciprocated.
