Shit man - I'm really sorry to hear that. Possibly her loss of libido is emotional too. Losing a baby can be really traumatic.

It's a relavant tangent

Also, I think sometimes monogamy is not a social constraint, but the expression of a genuine bond. There are animals who mate for life too.
Saying that, it would be interesting to have a society where everything was allowed, but given how immature our society is it would probably all end in Shakespearean-style tears...
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
