While doing going over the lecture I found it very interesting when I came across this particular subject of "mate poaching". Although I do see this type of behavior happening everyday in society I have always wondered why people did these sorts of things. It makes perfect sense in my mind to just leave someone alone if you can see that they are in a happy relationship. Temptation is a very hard thing to deal with any human so it is best for us to just stay away from it. Going after someone else's mate is just wrong and I would of never thought that it could really have something to do with motivational psychology. What actually causes someone to be motivated to take someone's partner. This is even ten times worst when the person is married. I can really appreciate the research on this subject.
