BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI – While Christianity preaches monogamy and marriage between a man and a woman as good, controversial pastor and ‘Honestly Speaking’ talk show host on ZBVI 780AM, Claude O. Skelton-Cline has shared the opposite, declaring that monogamy is not natural but rather a choice.

Mr Claude O. Skelton-Cline was at the time speaking during the June 27, 2023, edition of his Honestly Speaking talk show on ZBVI radio.

“Study shows that women get bored sooner with monogamy than men, so while man, while we think we jamming… we doing our thing. You happy, but she ain't,” he added.

While Skelton-Cline did not share the origin of the study, he added that before a woman cheats sexually, she also cheats with her emotions, and the man has to feed her emotions.

Monogamy is a choice - Skelton-Cline 

Skelton-Cline added, “This going to mess with some of you, but hear me when I tell you, monogamy is not natural… Monogamy is a choice. It's a lifestyle that you choose to live, it's a decision.”

He added that men don't cheat more frequently than women.

“Cause you know man, we not as discerning,” he said while declaring that women have the instincts to know when a man is cheating.

He warned against persons in long-term relationships allowing themselves to become bored and miserable to become someone they are not, but rather keep the erotic, do things differently, and add mystery, adventure, and more into their relationship.

    The fact that you have to tell humans that just means that the majority of them are idiots, of course it’s not natural, marriage itself is not natural. Just look up the meaning of natural lol, tons of idiots on the planet.

    Only humans truly capable of coming up with and actually believing in something like marriage. Truly too smart they actually become idiots. Humans tend to forget they are animals as well. No amount of ideology going to change the literal makeup of your existence.

      @Lawl. Lots of animals and birds mate for life, which is natural monogamy.

        Nope. That is incorrect. Check your facts. Monogamy is rare in the animal kingdom and its primarily a bird thing. Mammals are naturally promiscuous with approximately 3% of known species being confirmed to naturally behave monogamously.

    In the Holy Scriptures we are told to "Watch the Ant and be wise". The Ants build their houses and store up food for scarce times or bad weather. While paying attention to the Ants, perhaps we need to pay attention to Animals in general. Animals and Birds tend to stick with their Female Partners. Males sometimes play around with other males sexually; but not seriously. They go back to their female partners.
    As far as Boredom in marriage and relationships are concerned, there's boredom in many other relationships and activities. We even become bóred with the arrangement of our homes, arrangement of furniture and decor and must freshen up, rearrange. There are therapists that councils and advises and helps parties in such relationships see things in different ways to be more respectful to one another etc. Vacations and visits to other countries and way of life of others can serve as a refresher in such relationships. Here in Bvi we have any number activities to be enjoyed individually, with friends or others. Thousands of persons come to the Bvi to enjoy our beaches, visit the Baths, Scuba Dive, fishing etc.Boredom tends to come from doing the same thing over and over, staying in the same place. Even staying Stupid in this age of enlightenment can manifest itself in boredom. Instant connectivity, instant communication have never been better, We won't necessarily find ourselves and and our appiness skipping from one relationship to another. Bees fly around from one flower to another in the process of making Honey. We sometimes don't even know ourselves; yet are expecting to know each other after only a short while. OneBvi, Bvilove

    Some of you men missed the second part of his statement. Keep that same energy if your wife or girlfriend says the same thing some of you guys are saying. He says it is a choice. That means as an intelligent and disciplined human being you can choose to be monogamous .

    Keep normalizing sharing bodies..this island is so small yet it's obvious that we've all gotten a taste of each other. Some of us are lucky that STDs aren't as high here. Also medical professionals have already admitted that a person who has been in a relationship for years is more likely to report contracting a disease than someone who's single, solely because folks who are committed usually don't see the need to "wrap it up" with their partner who they've grown to love and trust. Singles are more likely to practice safe sex because they know what they're up to privately..if you're decent and wish to have an open relationship atleast please have the balls to let your partner know so that they can take precautionary measures while dealing with you.
    And I refuse to believe that a woman is more likely to cheat than men. Men do it to boost their egos as in "the more bodies he racks up, the better" there's this insatiable hunger in men that causes them to want a taste of every piece of candy in the candy store even if he's already emotionally invested in someone????
