Given the prevalence of affairs and divorce, I think you're right in saying that it isn't really "natural" to expect one person to fill all of those needs for you. Many people do it, and some do it very well (and they are likely those who are "naturally monogomous"), but the rest of us struggle along until we realize that we don't need to struggle so hard. I certainly don't get all of my emotional needs filled by my husband. When I tried to do that, I was miserable!
