I Am A Female Against MonogamyI feel as though the pressure to be faithful makes people miserable. It's why we have difficulty maintaining monogamous relationships. Think about it, there is no other relationship that you aren't allowed to have any other companions of the same kind. You can have multiple friends, multiple coworkers, you can even have multiple parents if you are close to a step parent or an inlaw. Having just one husband or wife puts ridiculous pressure on the relationship to fill all your needs, and it never will; because no one person can meet all the needs of another. I want the vows and the white picket fence and the 2.5 kids more than anything, I just don't understand why I have to only ever sleep with one person for the rest of my life. Its so stifling. I like male attention and I like it when a new guy finds me attractive or when someone totally different than my significant other is interested in me. I never want these things to last but I just want to enjoy all the fun and then move on. I still love my husband more than anything in the world and being sexually attracted to someone else doesn't diminish that imo. How do I stop having these feelings? Is there a way to be happy with just one man???
