The Hunt for a mate hasn’t changed much throughout our evolution, humans still look for a partner who will bear children and or protect us. However, the process in sexual selection and the traits that signal a person is a good match have changed. Women and men now look for a mate with a bigger income because money is power and power is protection. Being financially stable is a big part of being able to successfully raise children, and keep a secure household. Men and women both select their mates to produce offspring which makes me curious as to those like myself who want a partnership but don’t wish to have children. It can be argued that if a woman doesn’t have children she is a biological failure, but I can’t help thinking there is more to life and relationships then reproduction value. So does the motivation to seek a partner change when you don’t want children? I’d say most likely it doesn’t because the traits we search for are innate, and when seeking a mate you are still coveting protection due to natural instinct.
