In the Mad Men Season 5 premiere, we learned that Don Draper (Jon Hamm) went through with marrying Megan (Jessica Paré), and they actually seem...happy. Their marriage could not be more different from Don's cold, distant relationship with Betty (January Jones).
So, has Megan really done the seemingly impossible, and gotten Don to settle down for good? In an interview with Metro, Jon Hamm opened up about Don's new relationship, and whether or not monogamy is really on his mind.

"One of the larger themes of the show is happiness and what it takes to achieve it," Jon reflected, noting how ironic it is that Don "sells happiness yet is pretty dissatisfied with his own life."
Jon says that Don is aware of this hole in his life, and one of his goals is "to be happy and to find out what in his life will help him achieve true happiness."
Another goal? "Monogamy." That is something Don wants to achieve, and according to Jon, "he is going to explore that to the extent he can."
Of course, based on Don's track record, the "extent he can" might not amount to very much. But who knows — based on the premiere, we thought it seemed like Megan might actually be the one to get restless first in this relationship.
Do you think Don can actually stay faithful this time around?
