    Whatever Floats Your Boat

    I've actually never even considered not being monogomous. Although this is probably because I grew up in America, which, let's face it, is really conservative as far as what is/isn't socially acceptable (especially in comparison to the rest of the world), anything other than...

    I Believe

    I truly believe in monogamy. Yet almost all the relationships...I am thinking except one...I have been in, the other person always cheated. My first husband did, the man who fathered two of my children did. Then I didn't date for almost 8 years. Started dating someone and guess...

    If You Ain't Sleeping Together You Better Be Sleeping Alone

    I believe in it, I don't want to share who ever my significant other turns out to be, nor do I want her to share me. Just my views Edit: I wish it were one love for life, I hope it still is for some(not sure if I'm included in that one)

    It Makes Sense If You Want Your Marriage to Work

    I want my marriage to work.  I want it to be happy.  I want it to have longevity and I want it be a solid foundation for the rest of my life. I cannot see how that could work if one or both of us decided that we would see other people.  I believe that it would...

    I Belive The Bible Teaches Against Polygamy Part 1

    But I Don't Not Believe In Non-monogamy

    I just think you have to be open and honest if you're going to be non-monogamous. I believe that polygamy, polyandry, and polyamory can work. I also know that they're not for me.

    Why Does Everything Have To Be Religious?

    Everything about relationships nowadays seems to -have- to be about some god or another or satan or any of that BS. I practice monogamy because I would never share love with anyone else, but there's nothing religious about it. I don't care what the bible says, or what the Vedas...

    Just true monogamous love. And honesty if the person isn't satisfied sexually, then be honest and move on. Sex is an important part of intimacy. I don't take it lightly.

    Nothing Beats That Feeling Of Pure Love

    I believe in monogamy. I believe that when two people meet and realize that they all of a sudden do not desire anybody else, that's when they choose to be monogamous. Divorce rates are high but not due to people just wanting to have sex with someone else, it's because they got...
