    Default Dustin Hoffman: 'Monogamy is unnatural'

    Rex Features

    Dustin Hoffman has revealed that he doesn't believe in monogamy.

    The Oscar-winning Rain Man star said that he finds the concept "unnatural".

    "There's so much about marriage that's unnatural. I don't think it's natural to be monogamous, to be as in love as you were the day before," he confessed.

    However, the 70-year-old insisted that he was loyal to his wife, lawyer Lisa Gottsegen.

    "Does fidelity make sense? Yes. I don't think that you can substitute honesty in a relationship."

    Hoffman has been married to Gottsegen since 1980. The couple have four children together. Hoffman also has two children from his first marriage to Anne Byrne.

    Monogamy has never felt unnatural at all to me. Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

    Monogamy isn't any more or less natural than any other type of social structure.

    I think if you put your mind to it you can remain faithful.

    Yeah thats his beliefs, but it's not everyones. He's probably never really been in love. Fucking around is not love. He should hook up with Kate Hudson; they share the same views.

    I think he's right. How many of you would fuck Johnny Depp up and down, and still have a special relationship with your current SO? If you have thoughts about someone else, then your thinking about something that isn't monogamy. If you're in a relationship, as long as the other person(s?) know the deal and everyone agrees...

    ^^ As hot as Johnny is (or any other guy for that matter), I would never cheat on my honey.

    Not unnatural, just largely abnormal.

    If monogamy was an inherent human instinct then affairs wouldn't exist. Cheating would be an alien concept.

    I agree with him. Monogamy, as someone said above, is a societal construct designed to make people behave "properly". For the most part, it doesn't work, and society itself proves that every single day.

    O he's right - many of us who enter monogamous unions struggle, and men, well they just don't have a chance, unless no-one wants them but their wife!
