This is when individuals select and copulate with another individual, and repeat year after year, even if other males are in the cage or area(in nature)

Pair bonding is common in nature, I find the same individuals together at their breeding sites, year after year. And this includes types of kings.
About what they cannot do because of some brain studies. Not sure I would trust academic studies, that is, Studies that do not produce a result. In nature they are far more complex then we are led to believe.
With rattlesnakes, they not only pair bond and den in groups, but females Brood their offspring. Females even brood the offspring of other females. And I have observed a blacktailed rattlesnake, brooding the offspring of a banded rock rattlesnake.
You may want to goggle up Melissa Armarillo and her social snakes site. She has observed this and more, much more with time lapse cameras. By the way, I use them as well, both in the field and in captivity. Hang on, what I was getting at is, I could careless if science says they cannot do something based on academic dissection of brains. Particularly when that something is observed to occur in nature and captivity.
