Animals that mate for life. . ..
Despite all doubt, yes it is possible... some animals do mate for life! And these daring and darling animals are symbols of love eternal and lifetime commitment. Love is in the air and these animals symbolize making it through the rough patches, sticking together and they can inspire us to believe in and stay true to everlasting love, the promise of soulmates and being "all in" for the long haul.
Love in the Animal Kingdom
Love is alive and thriving in the animal kingdom, and some of our most beloved animals are devoted to just one partner.
90% of all birds mate for life, staying with their partners until death, while only a small percentage of mammals mate for life.
I've often wondered about the Lobster... since the reference in the Friends episode referring to finding your Lobster, the one that you will be with for life. Turns out, that Lobsters do not actually mate for life.
The relationships in the animal kingdom are very complex, and mating for life in the animal kingdom does not necessarily mean monogamy... some have been known to have a wandering eye and even have secret liaisons, yet they do return to their mates. And similar to us, many of these animals are very possessive and jealous, even fighting off the competition.
