As a romance author, I believe in happy relationships and happy endings. I live them everyday while write and reading my books. While some humans are monogamous, there is an equal number of those who cheat or move on to another partner for one reason or another.
The other day I was thinking about this and wondered what other animals or birds mated for life.
Thirteen Animals and Birds that Mate for Life
2. Wolves, which makes the werewolf the perfect hero/heroine in a romance novel.
4. Gibbon Apes
5. Barn owls
6. Brolga cranes
9. Bald Eagle
11. French Angel fish
12. Royal NZ Albatross
13. Atlantic puffin
Like humans there are exceptions with the above birds and animals, but generally the creatures in this list stay with the same mate throughout their lives.
You already know I adore a happy ever after story. When you read a book featuring romantic elements, do you enjoy cliffhanger endings, or do you like all the plot strands to tie up and the characters to walk off into the sunset together?
