|OK - try this for size as the actress said to the bishop !! lol !!|
In a world where an incredibly high percentage of marriages fail, frequently as it involves "the other man/woman" - is marriage outdated as a style of relationship ?
If so many people are playing away, does this mean monogamy is increasingly optional in relationships, as so many treat it as so, but don't have the courage of their convictions to be open about it
In a traditional relationship, additional relationships =cheating - this is dishonest, hurtful disrespectful etc, and unsurprisingly usually results in the relationship ending
Alternatively polyamory for instance, means additional relationships are possible, they involve not purely sex, but emotional love as well, with the full knowledge and support of both partners - ie there are ethics and trust as a mainstay
People change, and in the same way if you have a son, and give birth to a daughter, you don't choose to stop loving one of them, when it is acceptable t love both !! So if you are lucky to be in a relationship for morethan five minutes, and find somethings change, but that ultimately you still want to share the relationship with your original partner, isn't it obvious if both find it acceptable, that polyamory is the solution
Or is this too radical ???
Close friends of mine have made this work very well, and their relationship, and the closeness they share is to be envied !!
