Monogamy (monos + gamos) meaning one + marriage. A form of marriage in which an individual has only one spouse at any one time.
In current usage monogamy often refers to having one sexual partner irrespective of marriage or reproduction. The term is applied also to the social behaviour of some animals, referring to the state of having only one mate at any one time.
Marriage also means the coming together or union of two things/people….so don’t worry you don’t have to propose to anyone! 🙂
