    An Unrealistic And Unhealthy Standard

    I think for most people, monogamy is not natural or healthy or realistic. I hate that in our culture, we consider possessiveness and jealousy to be signs of virtue, and we're not even supposed to have or express any attractions to other people when we're with someone. It's so...

    I am 24 and feeling like my life is about to be

    over. I am engaged to a lovely man I can't imagine life without and excited to be a bride. But. I don't think I can spend the rest of my life not loving another person, I've always been faithful to him and he has always been faithful to me (I think) because that's what he...

    Sorry but if I'm ever with a guy,

    I could never have him be stuck with only me his entire life. I'm gonna get hate for this and have millions of people say it's because of my "low self esteem", but I honestly believe that people naturally want to sleep with and have an emotional relationship with other people...

    I have had a few long-term relationships

    and I am in one currently. This person is the first one I thought that maybe I could remain faithful to and go down the known path of marriage and children. We have been together for more than 3 years and I was getting more and more depressed and feeling restricted. I am a...

    Lovers Triangle

    Well, I was living in this place, where all young people knows each other and knows everything about everyone. My group of friends is actually outside all that bullshit, I mean, everybody know us and know who we are, but we don't get involved into the gossip crap and stuff...

    I noticed a trend in this group.

    It seems nearly everyone here confuses monogamy with sexual exclusivity. They are not the same thing. That was true even in the ancient world when monogamous men had free sexual access to servants and slaves.

    Monogamy Is The Perversion

    Everyone knows it because everyone feels it and I know everyone feels it because the science backs me up. Nobody lives a lifetime with a partner and not have at least fantasies about loveless sex with someone else from time to time and we are being dishonest with ourselves when...

    Just don't believe it's realistic.

    For some maybe they can make it work but the statistics and research are stacked against it. My attitude has shifted dramatically over the past couple of years.

    Just Figured It Out!

    I have been married twice.....still married to a loving man, but completely convinced that monogamy is a ridiculous concept! I have never cheated on either one of my husbands, but life would be so much more grand if there was no such thing as sexual monogamy! I can have a...

    My husband naturally leans towards monogamy

    but I don't. We agreed that he doesn't want to know and that my adventures don't infringe on our time together and our relationship. I wonder whether a long term relationship between a monogamish and monogamous person will work. We're already together for 12 years.
