The Paradox Of Marriage
So after all I ask myself, who doesn´t think about having an affair, except for those people with an extremely low sex-drive or those few who seem to have found the perfect match. This leads me to wonder why marriage is still such an ideal, one partner for all your lifetime, while reality proves it being so difficult. Whether one believes in evolution or the Bible, who can deny that man/woman is not monogame by nature. If you believe in evolution, this is only natural. If you believe in the Bible, you can see it as a consequence of the fall. And why all this fuss about faithfullness? Would it not be much more loving to grant your partner some extra fun. Why all this exclusivism and possesiveness? And I know the arguments against this that I am provoking. But unless I see as many people saying "I am happy in my marriage" as those that are not, I´m just not convinced. If I truly love, why do I have to possess? Desire, yes, but does this mean whoever I desire can be only for me?
