Mate selecting is an evolutionary process in which selection of a mate depends on attractiveness of its traits. Humans are in a small minority in the important way for over 95 percent of other mammals, family arrangements involving male care of offspring are non-existent. Across human societies, though, men and women bond together in marriage. Not all human mating occurs within such bonds; within and across societies, polygamous arrangements are relatively common.
