Yangying Ye was raised in a traditional Chinese family where everyone saw marriage as the ultimate goal of a person’s life. However, there is a growing number of people who are questioning monogamy—the state of being with one person at a time. They are saying that monogamy is not human nature. In addition to this, the rates of sexual infidelity have increased in relationships. Even going further, marriages are no longer successful; in the United States alone, 45% of first marriages end in divorce, and it only gets worse for second or third marriages. In light of these statistics, Yangying started questioning: Why marriage? Why monogamy? What are the alternatives? To answer these questions, she built her thesis on human mating, MONO/POLY: Designing for a Post-Marriage Society.
