I think it makes the most sense. Poly isn’t for me. I think a true and loving intimate relationship with 1 person is already one of the most complex relationships people engage in, and it’s a 24/7 gig to do right. Introducing more people into the mix makes it exponentially more complex and difficult IMO. Not saying you shouldn’t do poly if you like that. I’m just saying I think monogamy has better outcomes overall. Log in to Reply Most people can’t have open relationships or be polygamist because most people are just too jealous. So I think monogamy is what most people should practice. If open relationships and polygamy works for you then you should do it. Log in to Reply It’s worked for the 30yrs of our marriage. It’s not for everyone. Log in to Reply I don’t like monogamy or poly relationships lol I felt trapped when I was with just one person, but felt overwhelmed by a poly relationship when I tried that, as I just couldn’t keep up with two or more people and I pretty much acted like I was single at that point anyway, so I just became single. Log in to Reply Better than poly in my opinion, much easier to manage 1 relationship. Then again I would prefer no relationships. Log in to Reply It works for me and wifey! Log in to Reply It is for me. Log in to Reply It’s the only normal form of a relationship, and all other forms should be mocked Log in to Reply It’s one, but not the only, valid way of having a relationship. It’s what I prefer, because I just don’t experience being attracted to, let alone in love with, multiple people at once. But I also understand that not everyone experiences live and attraction like I do. Log in to Reply Monogamy works well for the sort of people who are well-suited for monogamy. But it is not the be-all and the end-all of human relationship styles. I know dozens of people for whom ethical non-monogamy is far more ideal…myself, my partners, and their other partners included. Log in to Reply I’m wired for it. I love to have one person to put all my romantic energy into. I have several friends who are poly and it seems to work for them. They are happy and their daughter seems healthy and well adjusted. So (at least anecdotally) It’s not a problem. But it would wear me down to nothing and I’d probably become resentful. Log in to Reply Serial monogamy is the only healthy way to have relationships. It could actually be one partner for life, but if not, you can always try again. Log in to Reply I like it Log in to Reply Works for me. Poly doesn’t. If poly is your trip and works for you, great. Log in to Reply idk if I could ever do it. im aromantic and i don’t really have too much of an interest in sex. plus I have mad commitment issues. a relationship does sound nice sometimes, just not when I’m in one. Log in to Reply Is good Log in to Reply It happens Log in to Reply Monogamy is great. Plus it was enough work to get one person to like me Log in to Reply Entitled much? /s Log in to Reply Works for some, doesn’t work for others. Log in to Reply As a person to live your life with and support each other, yes. As a limitation on sexual partnerships, no. Log in to Reply Evolutionary speaking, it’s against human nature. It’s hard, but that is what makes it special. I think it speaks volumes about how much you love and value your partner to overcome impulses. It’s complex. It’s difficult. It’s oh so very special. Big Fan Log in to Reply Im a fan, the only thing that feels right for me Log in to Reply Polyamory is idyllic in theory but very, very few people are emotionally wired to pull it off (myself included). Monogamy tends to be the default for lack of a functioning alternative. Log in to Reply I honestly don’t understand how people have time to be poly. Between work, chores, friends, family, social obligations, and time with my partner I literally don’t know where I’d fit in a whole other relationship. Log in to Reply It Seem to work better than polygamy though may in many cases work less efficient than monogamy Log in to Reply It’s pretty dope Log in to Reply it’s not everybody’s thing and we should do our best to respect that Log in to Reply Do whatever you want. Who cares? Log in to Reply I couldn’t be in a relationship knowing my SO is sleeping around with other people. Log in to Reply It’s the superior to all others Log in to Reply Trash Log in to Reply Optimal family structure for a stable society. Log in to Reply Good for double penetration. Otherwise, nah. Log in to Reply Great for some people! Not for me, personally. Log in to Reply It’s cool, not 100% sure it’s for me. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
