Often we discover that the values that we take as positive and universal are not necessarily. At times, those values have been imposed, like moral laws, for the simple reason of social organization. The anthropologist Eduard Fuchs remembers in his ??story illustrated from the Sexual morality,? that ??monogamy grows from the concentration of wealth in a few hands and from the need to delegate such wealth to their children and not to others.  The legitimized inheritance was his first and last objective.? Marriage, then, is intimately bonded to the concept of private property.

Harriman, Whitney, Pulitzer, Kennedy? Intellectuals and millionaires have broken in many occasions throughout history the topic of a relationship between two people. ??As a social class ??explains the writer Barbara Foster in ??Love Triangles? ?? they have been astute enough to leave morality to the bourgeois.?  Jean Paul Sartre, the promoter of existentialism, and Simone de Beauvoir, his wife, create a grand capacity to incorporate women in their relationship and often included men.
